Summary

This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to playing the piano, focusing on the basic scales and arpeggios. Scale practice is of the utmost importance when learning the violin, and this guide concentrates on this idea, using it as a starting point for the mastery of perfect intonation, rapidity, evenness, smooth changes, firm fingering, and neat changes of position. This volume is highly recommended for new players and collectors of vintage violin literature. Contents include: “Major Scales”, “Arpeggios”, “Minor Scales—Melodic”, “Minor Scales—Harmonics”, “Minor Scales—Arpeggios”, “Dominant 7ths”, “Diminished 7ths”, “Chromatic 7ths”, “Scales and Arpeggios in Three Octaves and Double Note Scale”, “Major Scales”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
