Violin Scales and Arpeggios in One, Two, and Three Octaves (Based on Flesch) is a new book from Simply Violin that includes major and minor scales divided by octave and arranged in the order of the Circle of fifths (which adds accidentals one at a time). A large, full color Circle of Fifths diagram designed by a graphic artist to be useful and readable is also included in the appendix. Fingerings are consistent not only from scale to scale but also from octave to octave. This allows each student to start the book at his or her appropriate level, and to progress logically toward three octave scales with fingerings based on Flesch.

The presentation of the three octave scales is almost like a "Cliff Notes" version of Flesch -- but without the thick book that doesn't like to stay open and can be difficult to use and read.

The Simply Violin scale book is very clean on the page and intended to be non-intimidating --especially for the student. There is adequate spacing between scales and arpeggios plus room for the individual teacher to write in their own fingerings if desired.

The two octave scales in this book are particularly nice for students who are auditioning for an intermediate youth orchestra and the scales in one octave are written for beginners.

Arpeggios in one, two, and three octaves are also included -- again with fingerings based on Flesch.

This book is by Lisa A. Berman, M.M. Yale University and available at http://www.simplyviolin.com and through amazon.com
