Have you ever crossed out so much content and advanced fingerings in a scale book for your students that the sheet music looks like a football play drawing?
Young students deserve better resources that are clear to read and appropriate for their level and let them be successful in their home practice.
Teachers deserve resources that maximize every second of a 30-minute violin lesson.
Like all of my materials, I developed the One Octave Scales and Arpeggios for Violin out of a need for my studio and to fill a void in the existing resources available for beginning-intermediate-level violinists. I was frustrated that my students did not have an easy-to-read version of foundational content and tired of having to cross out octave ranges and fingerings in the existing scale collections.

The One Octave Scales and Arpeggios for Violin has been one of my most popular resources, and the features include:
Like all of my materials, I developed the One Octave Scales and Arpeggios for Violin out of a need for my studio and to fill a void in the existing resources available for beginning-intermediate-level violinists.
I was frustrated that my students did not have an easy-to-read version of foundational content and tired of having to cross out octave ranges and fingerings in the existing scale collections. Not having proper resources for the beginner-intermediate level student led to them inadvertently making errors when practicing at home. Once we started using the One Octave Scales and Arpeggios for Violin, concepts were clear, easy to read, and quickly mastered.
The entire collection will be on sale at 50% off thru June 30, 2022.
Here is what other violinists and teachers are saying about the One Octave Scales and Arpeggios for Violin resource:
"Wonderful resource for my beginning violin classes. Thank you, Heather, for compiling such a clean, organized collection that is easy to use and easy for my students to read."
- S. K.
"I really love having sheet music in crystal clear large print. I think it will help my 6-year-old overcome his aversion to reading sheet music, and it is much easier on my own eyes, too."
- Angela S.
"This product is EXACTLY what I needed! Clear and concise, especially for us old guys. I need a good reference for scales and especially, arpeggios and it filled the bill right up front. Thanks Music for Young Violinists!! GREAT JOB!!!"
"I think is a fantastic resource for beginners learning scales. The notes are large and very readable. I really love having it because when students play in competitions, they are expected to know a lot of scales to play by memory, and this is a fundamental resource."
- Kate B.
"Immediately delivered PDF access. Very easy to download, open, print, and save. Well documented, easy to read. Perfect for any beginner or intermediate player for learning for practicing."
- Sandra C.B.
We live in a world of great contrast, and the only fair thing is that everyone gets 24-hours a day. What we do with these hours makes the biggest difference in our lives, and I have created habits, which include auditing how I use my time, that help me set my life up for accomplishing my dreams and staying focused.

I recently had an eventful four months: getting COVID-19, finishing my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (Summa Cum Laude), applying to *Doctoral programs, having surgery (again), and moving to a new apartment which was accompanied by some significant life changes and losses. This period of time was surrounded by grace, but it was intense and difficult to stay on course. One tool that helped me was this 15-Minute Time Tracker to help me stay focused and ensure that my use of time aligned with my goals. For those of you who are new to the M4YV project, you may not know that I have a long-term dream to combine the arts with healing and plan to bridge my decades of experience with music with medicine.
I do not use this time tracker every day, but at least 2-3 days a week, it helps me stay on track. I use the "Top 3 Goals" section to list the tasks I hope to accomplish but are not my favorite but need to get done. This usually includes following up with insurance to pay medical bills, getting my computer fixed, and making a dental appointment. The other parts I use to stay organized. I will then list the scheduled parts of the day and create a draft of what my day will look like. Rarely the day sticks precisely to this draft, and occasionally, I use the same sheet for 2-3 days at a time. However, it helps create a framework to stay on task and work towards my dreams. Overall, this simple tool has been very useful for me, and somewhere I once heard a quote that stated something to the effect of "we tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in a day and underestimate what we can accomplish in a decade." This rings true for me, my days are ambitious with what I hope to fill them with (I am a lover of learning), but when I review what I have accomplished these past 10-years, it astounds me.
*I am honored and excited to begin at Frontier Nursing University in the fall of 2022 to work towards my Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner degree. Stay tuned for how this unfolds, and thank you for your support.
