Product Description
Many method books have a limited rote section. This resource is to be used to supplement your current method book. This resource provides many exercises to help students gain confidence and develop important skills before diving into the method book. This book provides a strong foundation in basic rhythm - which will help students learn faster once they begin learning notes.

I have used several different method books over my 11 years teaching orchestra. Some books have just a page or two dedicated to rote playing, while others have more. During the first weeks of playing it is essential to establish excellent technique. Playing by rote for several weeks will help students focus on maintaining proper playing position and solid intonation. A rote approach helps students develop good playing habits before having to add another skill such as note-reading. I believe students who start by rote are able to achieve better intonation, tone and position.

These pages will help students establish a solid foundation in:

* Basic rhythm/couning
* Notes on the D string and A string (G string for basses)
* Careful intonation
* Tunnel fingers
* Finger hops
* Bow direction
* Bow lifts
* Tone
* Bonus bass page to teach shifting on the G string

14 page rote unit with parts for violin, viola, cello and bass - 62 pages total.

This resource does not include a teacher manual. For detailed lesson plans to help build proper position, check out my resource called 'The True Beginning: Before the Method Book."
