This one-of-a-kind text is a must for students who are making the switch from violin to viola. Whistler makes introductory remarks on the notable differences in bowing, fingering, resonance, intonation and position study, followed by exercises specialized for development of each of these areas. The remainder of the book is a progressive course of study for viola that is appropriately paced for the former violin student.
