Scales Flow- A Community Class

Gwendolyn Masin

This spring semester, Gwendolyn’s Scales Flow pay hommage to Rodophe Kreutzer’s famous etudes, the “pain quotidien” of many violinists. This week's focus:

Variations in bowing style that can be changed at will. Teaching our brains how to interpret bowings, both printed on a page and imaginary broadens our musical horizon and prepares us, in part, for the speed of mind at which a musician frequently has to move. E flat major, reflecting Kreutzer’s Etude no 5, will be our key of choice this week.

Join Gwendolyn Masin every Tuesday for 30 minutes and learn a scale a week. Gwendolyn explains and applies an aspect of technique during every class in an accessible way. Gwendolyn will also spend a portion of time explaining how physical movement can help reduce injury and release unnecessary tension, so essential for liberating you as a player!
Come along, bring your instrument and a sense of curiosity as we proceed to connect those dots on the page. This is a playalong and there will be time for you to explore a scale and ask questions. These are all-levels sessions, though challenging, and particularly suitable for intermediate to advanced players.

Our community classes are based on a system of dāna. Dāna is the practice of cultivating generosity. At The Exhale, multiple hours of learning are given each week in the form of community classes, where the price of a class is recommended but not imposed. Those who teach these community classes volunteer their time and offer the revenue generated by it to faculty members who are in financial need during this unprecedented time in our collective history. We thank you for supporting this eco-system of giving and receiving!


Classes held via zoom, limited to small numbers. Community classes are free to attend, with a recommended donation per person. However, please donate what you can – no one will be prevented from attending due to financial circumstances.
