Warm-Up Routines for Violin (tutorial video & PDF chart) uses a simple but powerful open string exercise to learn 13 different technical exercises for beginning, intermediate, and advanced level violin.
This resource is for both teachers and students. Teachers can use this to help create a framework of goals to help their students advance the quality of their music-making while developing technique and tone production. This resource is also designed for students to identify what level they are at and take responsibility for ensuring they accomplish the expectations that should be studied at that level.
By the end of this tutorial you will learn:
1- Why it is so important to do this warm-up, holding on to the edge of the violin even if you are no longer a beginner.
2- Another reason why every violin teacher should purchase a roll of painter's tape (seriously, this stuff has no end of useful purposes & you will thank me later).
3- A weird but super cool way to use the violin to play the bow (yep, that's not a typo, you read that correctly).

Students need repetition to master any skill.
The studies in 13 Bowing Patterns for Scales + Harmony are perfect for creating a structure for this success and will benefit the beginning-intermediate level violin player in the following ways:
How to Use the Bowing Patterns:
1st - Do the bowing pattern in the air while singing the scale.
2nd- Play on the violin, mastering one pattern at a time. Do not go on to a new pattern until you are consistently successful with the previous pattern. Some students find it easier to start with the patterns on the second page.
3rd- March a quarter note beat while air bowing and singing the scale.
4th- Play on the violin while marching the quarter note beat.
