This following article will teach you the basics of the playing violin.
You will learn it:
- How to prepare yourself to play
- How to read violin music
Step 1: What you need
To play the violin, you need the following things:
A violin. (A decent violin usually costs upwards of $ 800, so I recommend finding a friend or teacher with a violin that you can borrow or just find some violins for toddlers which will be cheaper than others.)
A bow. (The bow is not always with the violin, and can also cost hundreds of dollars.) I hope if you lend or rent a violin will be an arc part of the deal.
A shoulder rest. (Here the violin will be held between neck and shoulder.) Since a violin is not shaped to fit that part of the body, that helps violinists be able to play more and have a better sound overall.)
Rosin. (This is a sticky resin that is made from different trees and plants that helps the bow sound when it comes into contact with a violin string.)
A music stand. (You need something to put on your music!) Most music loader booths are relatively inexpensive. If you are not able to find a booth, I suggest other household items on a table or shelf with your music too Support.
* All these things can be obtained from a local or online music store. *
Step 2: Preparing to play
Construction of the violin:
- Remove the violin and bow from the case.
- Place the shoulder rest on the back of the violin. When using a sponge, use rubber bands to secure it.
- Tighten the bow. Use the screw at the end of the bow; pull the hair of the bow. The hair should be from the wood of the bow away over the width of your little fingers.
- Rub the rosin up and down along the arch hair. This should take about ten seconds to get a new arc. In this case, it will take you about a minute.
