It is necessary to learn technique when it comes to violin as well as any other instrument. Technique teaches our hands to focus on how to correctly play the notes that appear on the page. Note reading becomes easier when songs can be broken down into technique exercises that the students may have played before. All of the sudden the violin music starts to make sense in lessons and everything clicks. Different techniques that students learn are scales, chords, arpeggios, melodic and harmonic intervals, and strength and dexterity exercises.
Expression is an important part of violin playing. Many notes can be played correctly but lack expression. This can be both dull and boring to both the performer and listener. Music is meant to show emotion. When students learn expression, their violin playing comes to life!
Understanding music theory helps students learn why and how chords work in music. Students also learn note reading on the music staff. It also teaches them what scales to use and in what keys. Every instrument uses the same music theory. It's like they are all part of the same language. Knowing music theory also helps students create their own songs in their violin lessons.
Violin students should always learn how to improvise. Learning improvisation helps make violin lessons more fun and students to be creative! Students learn simple song structure as well as different melodic devices. Students also implement the scales and chords that they've learned from their theory and technique portion of their lesson.
Let's Play Music and Make Art LLC, offers many different performance opportunities for violin students. Every year our studio takes part in both a spring and fall recital. We also attend the annual ATAM New England Music Festival held at the Newton, MA Marriott Hotel in April. A performance is a great goal for a violin student to have with their lessons and another great reason to practice!
Many piano instructors and studios only teach students how to read songs from a lesson book. This approach is okay but it is very limiting. Little creativity is involved and the students don’t understand the language of the music.More
