RCM 2021 Violin Technique, Etudes & Musicianship – Preparatory to Level 2


Carefully selected and curated to support teachers and students in their artistic and technical development, the Violin Series, 2021 Edition includes pieces from a diverse range of eras and styles that represent stepping stones to major violin repertoire. Each level is constructed to link repertoire selections to necessary techniques and corresponding etudes, while illustrating step-by-step connections for developing core skills.

Violin Technique, Etudes, and Musicianship Preparatory–2 introduces progressive technical requirements that relate directly to the included etudes. Etudes are commissioned and arranged with balanced key signatures and time signatures, incremental hand-frame development, and a systematic step-by-step building of technique. Keys expand from one to two octaves, covering the fingerboard with scales from major to harmonic and melodic minor; basic double-stop exercises are introduced; and the foundations of shifting to third position are established. These resources explore rhythm and meter, expanding from simple time to compound time. Duets are included for teacher support and performance opportunities.

This book promotes the development of elementary musicianship skills through sight reading (rhythm and playing) and ear exercises (interval and chord identification, clapbacks, and playbacks).
