This terrific book provides invaluable practice material for building technique over twenty-four studies in the first position. Originally for Violin, it has been accurately and faithfully transcribed for Viola by Margaret Banwell from Kinsey’s classic studies. This is a comprehensive exploration of Viola playing and helps train left and right hand dexterity and bow strokes as well as honing knowledge of tempo and time signatures and varying keys. Musical, varied and practical these elementary studies will help to point the early stages of development in the right direction.
