A Major Scale & Arpeggio

One octave starting on the A string - With tetrachords



The scale 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#.

Its relative minor is F# minor.

This scale of A Major is the very first scale to be learned by beginner violinists.

It is to be played in the first position, starting on the A open string.

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

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

For better control of the bow by beginners, 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 : 00:50
