Scales for Advanced Violinists is a technical source book for violinists compiled and edited by Barbara Barber.

The circle of 5ths is presented with 1st position finger patterns. Scales and arpeggios are written out with rhythmic variations and different combinations of bowings. Octaves, thirds, sixths, fingered octaves and tenths as well as harmonics, broken thirds, and chromatic scales are also presented with practice suggestions. This is an excellent guide for advanced students and teachers.

Otakar Sevick was a Czech musician and violin teacher who wrote many studies, methods and teaching tools. Many of which are still important today. For instance his violin methods are still useful a century later and his studies remain second to none.
This volume of 40 studies for right-hand technique includes exercises in string-crossing, arpeggios, triplets, changing bowing styles, staccato playing, legato playing and more.
An excellent set of bowing exercises that will help all violinists to develop their bowing styles, speed, control and rhythms.
Since 1901, Otakar Sevcik's works have formed the basis of many schools of string playing around the world. Thousands of players continue to find Sevcik an invaluable aid to technical development. In practicing Sevcik, as in playing scales, etudes, or pieces there are always four main headings to consider: purity of intonation, evenness of tone, exactness of rhythm and physical freedom and ease.
