We reviewed the activity where we hold our violins like guitars and pluck each string four times while saying it's name. There is a video on the resource page.
We then taught the students how to hold the bow (this way is not how we will always hold it, but it will give the students the ability to play the violin.
We then went through how to hold the violin and played our e-string with our bow.
This Week's Daily Practice (5-10 Minutes)
- Pluck the strings on the violin like last week, holding the violin like a guitar.
- Hold the bow and the violin and play the e-string four times.
- do so with all the other strings
- We should be able to identify all the strings on our violin. There is a chart under resources to help you!
