Cello scales can be played using acceleration patterns famously linked with Ivan Galamian. You may see that our Cello tutor Edinburgh includes bowing and rhythm variations for the arpeggios, but not for scales. This is because some Cello tutors Edinburgh have the view that the scales are best learnt using the acceleration patterns with straight eighth notes. Once students become better, she or he may want to incorporate the scales with bowing and rhythm patterns.
The practice of arpeggios helps Cello tutors Edinburgh to learn fingerboard geography, improves shifting, and prevents fear of the upper registers. Arpeggios should be practiced without a metronome. The speed of the arpeggio will rise as students play increasing numbers of notes within each bow during Cello lessons Edinburgh.
Cello tutors Edinburgh will show your child that Arpeggios beginning on the C string are 4 octaves and those beginning on the G string are 3 octaves. This is because 4-octave arpeggios beginning on G or above result in students playing so high on the neck that it is impractical and often leads to rosin on the fingers.
Cello tutors Edinburgh will demonstrate that the purpose of applying rhythm and bowing variants to the arpeggio is twofold. Once Cello students can play arpeggios with very complicated rhythms and bowings, shifting will have become second nature, thereby freeing students up to focus on making music instead. Rhythm and bowing variations will change from week to week so they have the added benefit of preventing scale work from becoming repetitive and boring!
The Flesch arpeggios used by the Cello tutor Edinburgh are a great tool to help students become comfortable with a lot of shifting. The main benefit of the Flesch arpeggios comes from their constantly changing shift distances and intervals.
The benefit to your child of practicing octaves on their own and with a Cello tutor Edinburgh will extend beyond the ability to simply play octaves. With regular octave practice, Cello tuition Edinburgh students learn to change the distance between their thumb and fingers as each moves up and down the fingerboard. Our Cello lessons Edinburgh Octave routines are designed to help your child master every possible interval they will come across in Cello literature.
