An accented note will have a “consonant” sound at the beginning of it “k” or “t” Vivace: A Vivace Tempo is lively and brisk. Vivace would be slightly faster than allegro.; Pianissimo: Pianissimo is written pp and means very soft.
Bass: The Bass is the largest instrument in the string family. It is played standing or sitting on a tall stool. The bass is also commonly called the string bass, double bass, stand up bass or acoustic bass. The strings on the bass are G, D, A and E. Basses are available in 1/8 – 4/4 sizes.
Violin parts : A fun way to remember the names of the violin strings is to sing: Each, Each Each, Each and Every, Ant, Ant, Ant, Digging in the Dirt, Dirt Dirt, going under Ground Ground Ground. Hairs – Never ever touch the hairs on the bow. Even if your fingers are clean there are natural oils in our skin that will soil the bow hairs and prevent the bow from playing. The hairs are made of horse hairs (no, the horse is not harmed, simply gets a hair cut)
Miss Laura’s lesson plans include customized audio practice aids. Firstly, these can be used during practice or even during a lesson. Miss Laura will record and email short practice recordings after each lesson. You will receive a recording of practice steps, metronome work, or duet parts for play along practice. Therefore, you will have Miss Laura’s help during home practice too, not only in the lesson.
I don’t just teach online violin lessons, I go beyond with lesson plans that include so much more. I provide online lesson portals, audio practice aids and audio practice submissions with feedback too. These are on top of the regular online violin lesson. That means, the lesson isn’t over after the online zoom lesson. Each lesson plan encourages the most progress per week. This learning environment is the most effective with teacher support that continues all week. Read more info on Suzuki Violin Lessons.
