C Major Scale & Arpeggio

Two octaves in the first position



This C Major scale and arpeggio for Grade 1 viola students covers two octaves over the four strings.

It is to be played entirely in the first position.

At first, the viola student should practice the suggested rhythm patterns on each note of the scale and arpeggio.

These rhythm patterns should be played starting in the middle of the bow, in the square position.

Then, the viola student can play the scale and arpeggio in détaché and with two-note slurs, first in the upper half of the bow, and then with the whole bow.

At all times, the viola student should pay attention to these very important points :
  • Precise intonation
  • Beautiful and resonant tone
  • Good posture and bow hold
  • First finger on the string
  • Straight bow
  • Constant bow speed and pressure
It is a good idea to practice in front of a mirror, with the strings of the viola parallel to the mirror.

Duration : 00:53
