FOURTH FINGER FITNESS is for you if...
~ You are frustrated playing out of tune notes with your fourth finger.
~ Your fourth finger is considerably weaker than your other fingers.
~ You are frustrated that your fourth finger is not improving no matter how many scales you play or etudes you practice.
~ You are tired of having a useless appendage on your left hand.
~ You devise crazy ass fingerings to avoid the fourth finger at all costs.
~ Octaves are hellish nightmares.
~ You have sustained a physical injury that weakened your fourth finger.
At the beginning of every volume of Fourth Finger Fitness method E-Book, the focus is on the fourth finger itself, playing consistently, rounded and strong...
Each exercise in the 105 page Volume 1 (Volumes 2 and 3 are 149 pages) gets progressively more difficult combining the fourth finger individually with every other finger, stressing finger relationships, finger distance and encouraging muscle memory between fingers with practice.
Every exercise focuses on a specific interval occurring between the fourth finger and other fingers with 2 pages of "fitness" for each finger combination consisting of varying rhythms.
Not only does Fourth Finger Fitness cover fourth finger relationships on one string it emphasizes fourth finger practice for string crossings as well.

After purchasing Fourth Finger Fitness, you have the option of downloading and/or printing the book. It is completely your choice if you wish to print the book or if you wish to read from your computer screen or tablet.
The exercises in this book are pretty intense. I would suggest no more than 10 minutes a day to get started. You may find that your fourth finger may get tired after 5 minutes.
Time yourself and stop when you are tired. It is very important for all violinists to listen to their body and not to push yourself otherwise damage can be done.
If you can only do 5 minutes, stay at 5 minutes and then slowly increase your time daily always listening to your body.
