A recent message to Simon Fischer about the Scales book
I wish to say a few grateful words of true appreciation for my new and improved technique. I realized that after three days of practicing the viola scales my scales were in tune with these exercises.
I had been working on some more advanced scales for months, and every day I was not sure if i would play them in tune. It was lucky if I did. Now If my teacher asks for scales I know I can play them without a doubt.
I was so hooked i ordered Basics and decided to just do some basic self-transcribing for viola so I can consume more Simon Fischer genius. Every time I open the Scales book it feels like having a world class pedagogue in the room. It is a true joy.
This is also a plea to please, please transcribe Basics for viola. I promise everyone will buy it, and if they don't I will buy them all! I am sure I am just one in a sea of millions you have helped, but i wished to be another person to thank you for everything you do.
