1. How can we learn to play violin well?
The first thing to emphasize is that you must concentrate and be serious when practicing piano. You should never play piano while watching TV (this is called playing piano, not playing piano). Thus, not only is it impossible to practice well on piano, but some wrong things are practiced that will be difficult to change.
Basic Practice: When you play empty strings, you should practice slowly, keep bow in a straight line, keep it steady and make a smooth sound. Do not think empty strings are too easy and there is nothing to practice on, quality of basic skills of empty strings will directly affect technical level in future. The practice of playing empty strings is like walking: it is most basic and first condition for good piano playing. Scale practice is also practiced slowly, one note and one bow practice, use your ears to listen to pitch and also check that direction of bow is not crooked. Pay attention to left hand.
Etude practice, rehearse slowly at first, pay attention to pitch and rhythm, shape of hand for left hand and use bow. After training, return to original speed practice.
For musical practice, first carefully read score (sound name, rhythm, pitch). Why read score first? Some students tend to play violin only from score and practice fingering by looking at pitch of score, ignoring note names. Therefore, we must first read score so that we can sing. The first step in practice is to play piece from start to finish and then choose one or two difficult pieces depending on your situation and practice difficult pieces first. After difficult part is finished, resume practice at original speed, and then add expression practice (strength and weakness, etc.).Secondly, what are most common obstacles you encounter when learning to play piano?
Nervousness is most common obstacle in learning to play violin, so understanding and practicing relaxation is first lesson for every friend who wants to learn to play violin.
1. Shoulder tension and relaxation exercises:
Try a tense shrug. We may find that while shoulder is tense, whole arm will be tense. How to solve: Lower your shoulders first, let them hang naturally and show a completely relaxed state. As long as shoulders are relaxed, whole arm will naturally relax.
2. Finger tension and relaxation exercises:
The hands are clenched into fists, and fingers are tense at this time. How to solve: Open your arms naturally and your fingers will relax.
The so-called tensionis to see if whole hand and fingers are consciously exerting force. After application of force, tension is bound to arise.
The so-called relaxation refers to relaxation and tension of arm after hard work.
Just like playing football as a child, hand has a kind of loose, elastic capacity for self-control and adaptation. It is this state of relative relaxation that is necessary for learning to play violin. WeChat training: 54947032
How to check arm tension and looseness:
Ask a friend for help and place your elbow joint on his palm. When he feels weight of your entire arm from his palm, then your arm is already in a relaxed state.
Conversely, when he does not feel the weight of your hand, it means that your hand is in a state of tension.
Three,You should start with a short medium bow
The bow is too heavy at base and too light at end. “The part in bow is easiest to control, because at this time elbow is in middle position. The so-called middle position means that elbow can continue to straighten or bend. At this time, forearm and shoulder form a 90-degree angle, and bow can be very comfortable. The ground runs parallel to bridge. And player can easily control feeling of weight when bow hairs touch strings. At this time, half weight of bow is on bowstrings, and half on hands.
Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as a "bow shoulder move" or a "bow forearm move". We always want to use them together, but proportions used are different. In so-called "forearm flexion," movement of forearm in elbow joint predominates, but there is also an almost imperceptible swing of upper arm. Similarly, when using shoulder joint to play bow with bow, upper arm dominates. , but there is also a slight movement of forearm. Therefore, avoid feeling stiffness in elbow and shoulder joints.
Also, fingers and wrists are important for bowing, but they are more subtle movements.
