A Major Scale & Arpeggio

One octave in first position - Starting on the first finger

The key of A Major is a major scale based on the note A.

It includes the pitches A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G#.

Its key signature is F#-C#-G# and its relative minor is F# minor.

This scale of A Major is an excellent way for the viola student to learn to place the third finger in extended pattern.

It is to be played in the first position, starting with the first finger on the G string.

We recommend that the student learns the lower tetrachord (on the G string) and the upper tetrachord (on the D string) before putting them together to create the A Major scale.

We also suggest a variety of rhythm patterns to be played on each note.

For better control of the bow by young viola students, be sure to use short bow strokes in the upper half of the bow.

This form of détaché bowing is to be played by moving the right forearm only.

Duration : 00:54
