Teaching Violin to the Very Young Child

Teaching Violin to the Very Young Child, Vol. One is designed as a guide for teaching violin to children as young as 4 years old. This unique approach introduces the student to the F Major Finger Pattern, beginning with the 1st finger at the nut. This pattern, with the 3rd and 4th fingers close together, is easier and more natural for the small hand. Overview of Vol. One • In Part 1, the child learns to hold the violin, execute a few simple rhythmic patterns, hold the bow, and play the notes by rote imitation. • In Part 2, the child reads each note on the page as a word: open, one, two, three, or four. During this time, there is no playing. • In Part 3, the child plays the music with the understanding of each note as a number, not a letter name.
