To the Teacher --
The concept of modulation is presented in an entertaining way in the
Note People Story, Chapter 15. The Circle of Fifths is introduced,
notes visit their "neighbors" next door and return home again.
Fast finger exercises promote left hand agility. Double stops and
vibrato are continued. Further "Musical Math" exercises encourage
good bow direction in the upper half and lower half. Bow exercises
for beginning well, finger flexibility, string levels and clear tone are
emphasized. Bow strokes include mixed bowings, slurs and staccato.
The interval of a 5th is studied and leads to recognizing major and
minor thirds and triads.
