Cello scales can be played using acceleration patterns made famous by Ivan Galamian. You may notice that our Cello tutor in Auckland includes bowing and rhythm variations for the arpeggios, but not for scales. This is because some Cello tutors have the opinion that the scales are best learned using the acceleration patterns with straight eighth notes. Once students become more skilled, she or he may wish to incorporate the scales with bowing and rhythm patterns.
The practice of arpeggios helps Auckland Cello students to get to know fingerboard geography, improves shifting, and stops fear of the upper registers. Arpeggios should be practiced without a metronome. The speed of the arpeggio will increase as students play larger numbers of notes within each bow during Cello lessons in Auckland.
Auckland Cello tutors will show your child that Arpeggios beginning on the C string are 4 octaves and those beginning on the G string are 3 octaves. This is because 4-octave arpeggios beginning on G or Year 12 result in students playing so high on the neck that it is impractical and often leads to rosin on the fingers.
Auckland Cello tutors will demonstrate that the purpose of applying rhythm and bowing variants to the arpeggio is twofold. Once Cello students can play arpeggios with very complicated rhythms and bowings, shifting will have become second nature, thereby freeing students up to focus on making music instead. Rhythm and bowing variations will change from week to week so they have the added benefit of preventing scale work from becoming repetitive and boring!
The Flesch arpeggios used by the Cello tutor in Auckland are a great tool to help students become comfortable with a lot of shifting. The main benefit of the Flesch arpeggios comes from their constantly changing shift distances and intervals.
The benefit to your child of practicing octaves on their own and with a Cello teacher in Auckland will extend beyond the ability to simply play octaves. With regular octave practice, Cello students learn to change the distance between their thumb and fingers as each moves up and down the fingerboard. Our Cello lessons in Auckland Octave routines are designed to help your child master every possible interval they will come across in Cello literature.
