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.

Mini-Music, My Puppy & Mail JOY!
It's true; everyone who purchases from the Music for Young Violinists store gets some personalized Mail JOY from me (aka "snail mail").
Keep scrolling to see what this is and meet my 14-month old Great Dane puppy.
It's also true that I love purchasing hard copies of music on thick paper, bound in a collection (raise your hand if you love this too).
In a perfect world, we would all live next to an amazing sheet music store and could pop by anytime we want to get specific materials for beginning-intermediate level violin players. It's neat to envision that, but until this is available, it's my honor to share downloadable sheet music resources with you. These collections came from my direct experience teaching beginning-intermediate level violin players these past 25+ years and were all inspired to fill a void in the existing materials as well as celebrate advancing skill levels.
Since I love the traditional hard copies of sheet music printed on durable paper, I send every patron a piece of mini-music and some fantastic violin-themed stickers. Make a purchase at the annual 50% off Back to School Sale, going on thru the end of the month, to have these *mementos of joy show up in your mailbox.
*Puppy not included.

Friends, I am blown away at how music can connect us. The list above is a partial list of some of the musicians who support the Music for Young Violinist project.
I am feeling so grateful to have the opportunity to connect. Below is a picture of the thank you notes and neat sticker gifts that I send to all purchases, and they go out to musicians from all over our planet. It warms my heart to share resources that nurture *young violinists.
*young is a state of mind, not a number :)
The original set of violin stickers have been so popular that we decided to build on this theme with an entire sticker sheet. Get this 4 x 6-inch sheet of 8 super cute violin and music-themed stickers free with any purchase.
