A great way for beginning violinists to practice and build up their technique, this classic book of exercises has served generations of music students and their teachers. The studies provide practice in string crossing, bow strokes, shifting, and finger patterns.
A native and lifelong resident of Leipzig, Germany, Franz Wohlfahrt (1833–84) studied with one of the world's greatest violinists, Ferdinand David. Wohlfahrt's Sixty Studies for the Violin, has remained a mainstay of the beginning violinist's education from the nineteenth century to today. The sixty etudes are divided into two volumes: Volume 1 focuses on studies in the first position, and Volume 2 advances to third position, employing more complex rhythms and bowings. Diligent practice of these studies will improve students' sight reading, advance their rhythm skills, and prepare them for a more difficult repertoire.
