Scale & Arpeggio Recordings
The Scale & Arpeggio Recordings correspond to the Scale & Arpeggio Music (see above) that have helped many of my students play better in tune. Over the years, I have sold these recordings all around the world, including North & South America, Europe, and Asia. Just recently, I have also made these files available for download for Violin and Cello, and other instruments will follow soon.  There are two ways to purchase:

Note Reading Flash Cards
These files are in pdf (Adobe Acrobat) format.** I suggest printing these on card stock for durability. On the back are fingerings as well as note names for the instrument. However, I also use these flashcards for teaching clefs to other instruments such as treble clef reading for viola, cello and bass.
