String Players Need Fingering Charts

In my years as a violin student, as a private teacher, and as a classroom teacher, I have never seen anyone use fingering charts, much less provide them to their students.  Even in scale methods, fingering charts are rarely provided, at least not past 1st position, or are often not very good ones. As a student, both in school and private lessons, it was never once suggested to me to look up the fingering on a chart.

Unfortunately, fingering charts, which are common for wind instruments, are somehow not even used as a resource for string students.  This doesn’t make sense, as string players have the difficult challenge of trying to find their notes on an unmarked fingerboard.  That’s why I created these fingering charts.

Easy to Use

These charts are very easy to use. Just look up the right key and position, and find the pattern of whole-tones and semi-tones you need.  You can also use the charts to practice your scales in different positions as well, and get to know the fingerboard that much better!

Every string player should have a good set of fingering charts to help them more confidently navigate the fingerboard.
