PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

YOUR FIRST VIOLIN! A booklet for beginning violin students
This booklet is meant to fill in a gap I have noticed with many students – knowledge of the pitch names on the fingerboard and on the music staff. Often students play by rote or from fingering only and are not able to identify the notes they are playing on the music staff or on the fingerboard. Hopefully these big flash cards and worksheets will provide a visual and tactile “map” and demonstrate how understanding the staff and fingerboard will result in better intonation. The sheets on major and minor scales show the solfa “grid” which can be used very successfully in understanding the construction of a scale. I have purposely used large print to facilitate younger students who are just beginning to read music notation. I suggest printing pages 1, 2, 4, 6-9, 21, 23 on cardstock to be used as references when the students are first learning the treble clef notes. The pages with coloured notes on the staff and ledger lines can be used as quizzes (name the orange note, point to the note that is played with 2nd finger etc.) Later students can draw lines to the correct note on their own copies. CONTENTS: p1. All notes in 1st position * – use as reference p2. Notes & fingering on staff * p3. Large coloured notes & fingering on staff to use as quiz and for worksheet (draw lines to connect notes and fingering) p4. Ledger line notes above and below staff* - use as reference p5.
