Superstudies Viola – Mary Cohen
These collections of original studies for beginner violinists, violists and cellists help to develop essential playing techniques including spiccato bowing, string crossing, molto perpetuo, cantabile and easy double stopping. The studies are excellent for consolidating playing positions and for extending players’ technique onto the next stage.
Superstudies Viola Book 2 is a collection of 12 original, imaginative studies for solo viola that continues the technical progression of Superstudies Book 1. Aimed at young players of Grades 2-4 standard, it introduces a wide range of musical styles, while consolidating all the finger patterns used in the first position and introducing easy third position fingering. This book also explores new bowing techniques including spicatto and hooked bows.
