I have been teaching a young violin student for quite a while now with the Suzuki method, and she is now about to take 'Bourree' in book two. But recently I started reading the stuff on the pages other than the songs, and it's saying that I should be teaching her strange scales before she learns the song. She knows the basic G major 3 octave scale, but nothing else so far. And the only thing I've given her for theory and note reading is the 'I Can Read Music' book by Joanne Martin.
Every once in a while I've given her a passing, "This is forte, it means loud", but she hasn't learned much else. Any advice of what she needs to know at this point would be greatly appreciated!
