Suzuki Violin Book 1: Go Tell Aunt Rhody in A, D, G Major with Preparation Exercise

Focus Points:

    • Keep polishing the previous pieces, seek to make them more interesting, playing them at different tempi (speeds).
    • Get into a good playing position: violin on the shoulder to the side, curved fingers for the bowhand, stand tall, left thumb by the first finger.
    • Place the bow at the middle between the bridge and the fingerboard.
    • This piece starts on the A string, just like the Twinkles and Song of the Wind, but now we start with two fingers down (the note C#).
    • In the second line you repeat Section B quietly (indicated with a p), watch for that in the video. Make a difference between the p and the mf.
