Album Notes
Never again buy expensive, battery munching tuning machines or use apps with horrible sound. Use a CD player or download the album to any handy device and take it everywhere. Tuning to another violin is vastly easier than tuning to an artificial sound from a synthesizer. Each drone is calibrated to a 440 A and played on a violin without vibrato. Students can easily learn how to tune their open strings of either violin or viola with the tuning tracks and to tune intervals with the drones. Practicing with a drone will prevent drifting sharp or flat in a scale or piece of music and will aid in choosing the best possible versions of each note. Eliminate the guesswork of tuning to the piano or instruments in the orchestra by playing with different drones in harmony with your part. Tuning to sound will improve your pitch much better and quicker than using a needle or other sight-related tuner.
