The last month or so has been all stacato bowings in different variations. At this point I'd like to set the etude manuscript on fire. Unfortunately I don't have it in front of me to give details on which one it is, but it's around 20 bars of music and then two pages of various bowings to apply to it.

There are many etudes. Scales with staccato are good. In terms of Etudes, No. 2 and 5 by Kreutzer can be adapted. There is also Kreutzer No. 4 (specifically written for that). Another good one is Rode No. 7.

Hope this helps. Best of luck and Cheers!

Please email me...I have many studies composed for this very purpose from 19th century virtuosi...Kreutzer is dreadfully boring and I believe you should have fun with a fun bowing!

personally I don@t think Kreutzer is boring. There is a surprisingly musical depth to all those etudes and one of the reasons they are often not used to full advantage is that the student (and all too often the teacher) approach them as technical exercises.
