i use the carl flesch scale system for violin and i would highly recommend it my shifts have gotten 100% better since i started it used the scales in all keys and does arpeggios and all that stuff we are supposed to hate.useful info. and since no one else has commented here i figure some one should!
i'm riley by the way and i play the violin and i have for 4 years and i'm concertmaster of the orchestra in town so the orchestra either sucks or the other which is highly unpropable. ok so i posted.
Current Mood: contemplativecontemplative
Current Music: santa fe--from the musical newsies

Welcome to the Scales for Life community! I hope you all enjoy it here.

A quick introduction: I've been playing violin for the past 6 or so years, and piano for 4 or 5 years before that. Basically, I've been playing musical scales for what feels like forever.
I loved scales on the piano because I played them at the end of my practice session. When I got to them, I was in the home stretch lol. I'm finding scales on the violin much trickier, but then again, I never played any advanced piano scales.

Looking forward to chatting with y'all :).
