Technical Exercises, Vol. 1 was created by Maurice Hauchard (1870-1957), a French violinist, composer and music teacher. This is the first of a series of two constituting a renowned progressive method, for upper beginners.
This first book of Technical Exercises focuses on technical methods for the left hand and insists on the player's correct body position. It also proposes different exercises which involve the development of independent fingers, crossing fingers, chords, scales and octaves.
The quality and the efficiency of Maurice Hauchard’s methods make this book a key series to have for a Violin player. In addition to this series, the composer also created nine additional methods for strings.
