No. 3.5:    "Fun With Harmonics", Exercises for violin beginners

Harmonics - clear, flutelike, pure tones - can be a wonderful aid in the search for a perfectly pure sound. Ivan Galamian believed that: ‘Harmonics are as much a bowing problem as a left hand problem’.
Beginner students can be encouraged to use more bow when playing natural harmonics and to change the contact point closer to the bridge.

The Preprint Edition of "My First Technique Book" with Digital Download was presented during the 9th International Music Teachers’ EXchange Conference in Germany
October 27 - 30, 2017

The event brought together more than 130 European, North and South American, Asian, and African Suzuki teachers, from 23 countries to work together, to learn from each other and to exchange.

 

 

No. 3.6:    Preparatory Exercises for Vibrato

 

STEP by STEP (Published by Alfred)
Enjoying Violin Technique (ISTEX MUSIC PUBLICATIONS)

Students of Charles Krigbaum from Texas demonstrate

- Exercises without the instrument
- Exercises with the violin or the bow
- Exercises with the violin and the bow

The Finger Rolling Exercise and most of the other exercises can be performed equally well with the WRIST or with the FOREARM.

After the students have learned the basic preparatory exercises
and the finger rolling movement they will work on the three most important elements of vibrato:

1. The speed of the vibrato
2. The width of the vibrato
3. But the most important element of all is the evenness of the vibrato
