Theory for the Aspiring Violinist is a special learning system designed to take your violinist from note reading to key signature mastery to scale and interval identification. Unlike the majority of other theory workbooks, “Aspiring Violinist” is written specifically for violinists. The system combines an extremely thorough workbook, specially designed flash cards, and over 60 dictation exercises that accompany each lesson. This system was written for violinists of many ages and levels, from young children playing in the Suzuki books to violinists performing the intermediate and advanced repertoire. The system is designed to be worked through at one’s own pace, allowing for the best learning experience for each individual. What will remain constant among all students is the acquiring of a thorough grasp of the essential basics of music theory.
