I have been working on the Wohlfahrt Violin Etudes (Book 1), and am already set to do Book 2 after finish it in around November as planned.
My main question is, I am 16 years old and now a rising Junior this fall... is it appropriate or a waste of time to go back to Wohlfhart? When I was in the 5th grade, my teacher had my diddle through some of the first few.. then time progressed, I moved several times, found different teachers and did Kreutzer and Rode later.
My teacher has me on it again, so I can follow the correct progressing order of etudes and do them all. They are enforcing now the step by step system by filling in each step to feel more comfortable at the next step/level.
After I finish these etudes (all 60), would I probably end up going to Mazas, Kayser?
Do you recommend someone to use the Whistler Books 1 and 2 and the Double Stop books? Also, do you think I should maybe excercise/warm up with the Sevcik and Schradieck books?
I really want to build a more solid technique!!
