♩ WHY ARE SCALES IMPORTANT? ♩
Practicing scales is actually the fastest way to improve intonation and violin technique. It's the most basic and important aspect violin practice, but so often a lot of students (even tutors!) neglect or shy away from scales, as it is too boring and difficult to learn, as we don't have a proper guidance or sound reference to base our practice on.
However, we need to consider the greatest difficulty of playing string instruments lies on the importance of playing all the notes in-tune. With proper guidance and consistent practice of scales, player will subconsciously develop ‘muscle memory’ to the position their finger correctly on every note on the fingerboard. Player will also be able to discern intonation more easily as the player constantly corrects their intonation to make it sound more accurate.
Without a good sound reference, students (amateur violinists) often end up learning imprecise pitch of the notes, which over time, could further worsen their pitch hearing and hinder their playing ability. Hence, it is crucial to establish a solid foundation at the early stages of violin playing, to ensure good intonation as they progress.
