This research provides brief exercises in score format with analytical descriptions. The
exercises created breaks down difficult passages to the most basic elements, which are inspired
by Šev?ik, Galamian, Jacobsen, and Fischer, so that violinists can hone one technical facet of
violin playing at a time. The layout for each functional exercise in chapter three is based on
Jacobsen’s Mendelssohn Violin Concerto Op. 64, Twenty-Four Preparatory Exercises (1961).27
Each exercise is composed of one passage focusing on one technical aspect. The passage is
followed by a short description of the challenges one may encounter. Different exercises are
written to illustrate how the passage can be practiced. Some exercises refer to the entire excerpt,
for example Exercises 5.2C and 5.2D for the Scherzo from Mendelsshon’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. All of the exercises are written based on the specified fingering and bowings marked in
the excerpts. However, alternative fingerings and bowings can be applied to the exercises. A
chart with the ten selected excerpts under different technical categories is shown in Appendix C.
