Description

The OFFICIAL ABRSM Violin Scales Trainer is a fun and rewarding way to practise scales and arpeggios for Violin. It’s been uniquely developed to combat the boredom and repetitiveness students often associate with routine scales practice and covers the ABRSM scales requirements for Violin at Grades 1-5.

There are five main features to help you build familiarity and confidence:
• Practice Area – for every scale and arpeggio you can view the notation and listen to example recordings played at exam tempo (or a different speed of your choosing)
• Play and Compare – record and review your own playing against example performances, reflect critically and monitor your progress
• Play with Band – follow the on-screen instructions and have fun playing the scale to a backing track
• Practice History – see your past activity and progress on each scale and arpeggio
• Quiz – Let Scales Trainer choose a selection of scales for you to practise. Perfect for a quick warm-up, or for getting in the zone for your exam.

Violin Scales Trainer can help you:
• Build familiarity with ABRSM requirements and prepare effectively for exams
• Make practice more engaging
• Develop a musical ear and improve technique
• Appreciate the importance of scales in relation to music making

This versatile tool features a fantastic mix of interactive exercises and useful information to help you prepare for ABRSM exams. It’s a flexible tool which can be used in a variety of situations including individual practice sessions and lessons.

The app covers all scale and arpeggio requirements for Violin at ABRSM Grades 1 to 5.

Removed piano content renders app useless to me

I bought this app last year for the piano scales which were originally included in this product. Now those scales have been split off into a separate piano app, and I am encouraged to purchase that as well. And what then? Will that one turn into a clarinet app and I have to purchase another separate one for piano? And what then, this could go on forever. It’s simply untrustworthy. Saying users should not update the app is not good enough, most people auto-upgrade and will have lost their piano content.

Could be so much better!

Here is what I want in an app: Scales in all keys, major and minor. The option choose as many octaves as I want. Ability to set the speed to whatever I want. Scales in various styles, such Galamian. Easy navigation. Feedback if I’m sharp or flat on a note. Is this too much to ask?
