Students will be using Essential Technique for Strings Book 3 Students should be tuning their own instrument and working on shifting/vibrato exercises. Please do not purchase "Prelude" or "Red Label" strings. These strings are intended for beginners. They are not for intermediate string students. Violin and Viola students should be using strings with a "synthetic core" and aluminium/silver windings. (E strings are usually steel) Popular brands are Thomastik Dominant and D'Addario Pro Arte. All violin and viola students must have shoulder rests. Kun or Everest shoulder rests are highly recommended.
Students should be able to tune their instruments given reference pitches (A D G C E).  These reference pitches can come from a chromatic tuner or keyboard. 
Students should be turning in their Practice logs/Self Evaluation weekly.  They need to practice 100 minutes each week to receive an A.
