follow The first finger , also called the anchor or supporting finger, is almost always kept on the string. It gives the frame of the left hand greater accuracy and clarity, by clearly defining what position one is playing in.
Not only should it support, acting as an anchor all the other fingers, it should also hold 5ths on two adjacent strings, whenever possible, thereby facilitating string crossing passages. The placing of 5ths. It is important to accurately note the lower first finger playing the B flat on the A string, and the higher by a 5th minus a semitone E natural on the D string. Care must be taken not to place this same finger in the same pattern for both strings, and the pupil should be well aware of the resulting tritone interval produced, and the exact semi-tone displacement of the position of the finger.
Open strings are not to be avoided as they provide a good reference for intonation, and themselves vibrate quite openly and purely. Open strings are also useful if one needs at least two notes on a particular string Study n. Third position fixed is not introduced until Study number 31, which provides an excellent introduction. Atonal etudes form a special group. The intention here is to bring those in our care closer to the problems of contemporary music and prepare them to perform it. I hope that this training material that I have proposed, combined with the new way of looking at methods for this will make the learners work easier and that young violinists will get great use from it.

I have just noticed in the previous reply that the fingerings on the lower staff must be shifted one note to the left. Booth believes th at these four pieces were probably co n osed during H eller's stay in Switzerland. Form: A A: m. Schumman Waldszenen, Op. This means lots of focused, conscientious repetition, knowing exactly the sound that you are after and the movements most likely to produce it with effortlessness. H e ll e r needed financial security, and acquiring pupils was difficult in a city where so many great teachers lived. I'll second Heller's request.
