I'm an adult beginner who's been playing just over a year and a half and currently half way through Suzuki book 2 with my private tutor.
I've been supplementing the Suzuki studies with Sevcik 40 vars and the ABRSM scale book, however I'm REALLY struggling with my scales and arpeggios considering how long I've been tackling them.
Generally my intonation is OK for a beginner but my problem is learning all of the major and minor keys in a non-robotic way and well fingered. Does anyone have advice on how best to approach the learning and practice of scales and arpeggios as I currently dread picking up the violin for practice for that very reason! ...it's quite disheartening :(
