When passing out a new piece of music I have often wished for a better way to drill finger-patterns to help students remember fingerings on each string for the key signatures. So often students ask ..."Is it a high 2 or low 2 on the A string? " I am hoping the drills and exercises in this resource will help students internalize how the key signatures change the finger patterns on each string.
This resource is 29 pages total. It contains 7 pages of exercises for violin, viola, cello and bass. Each page is a different key signature - from 3 sharps all the way to 3 flats. Students can see the fingerpatterns on each string on the diagram at the top of the page. Teachers may have students fill in the note names in the circles. The notes at the top of the page show half steps to help students with intervals and tuning.
