In our country, art of playing violin is very loved by people. With improvement of people's material life, more and more people are learning to play violin, and many excellent violinists have emerged.
There are countless violin amateurs and beginners. The biggest problem that violin lovers often face when learning and playing violin is problem of intonation, melody they play is always so harsh, but they don't know what problem is. This article mainly talks about a few flips to improve pitch of a violin.
How to create a good presentation with daily practice?
1. Correct posture for playing piano
Correct posture while holding violin is basis of successful violin playing. The correct way is to put violin on collarbone of left shoulder, make lower jaw stick to chin rest, raise left shoulder slightly, clamp violin with lower jaw and shoulders, and violin is at about a 45 degree angle to left.
Practice: During practice, you should pay attention to correct position of piano when you lower your left hand and leave piano. The purpose of this is to free left hand so that left hand can perform each technique more flexibly.
2. Keep correct form of left hand
The correct shape of hand directly affects effect of game. The basic shape of hand of left hand should consist of four fingers forming an arch. The image of left hand is how to hold egg in palm of your hand. Remove egg and keep shape of hand. The most important thing is to relax, especially thumb, when beginners practice holding piano, one of most common problems is that thumb of left hand is too tight.
Exercise points: there is a formula for stabilizing left hand. “Four fingers lined up, extended back and forth like a folding fan; palm is tilted towards neck of piano, and nails are turned towards face. “When playing piano, first press one, two, three, and wave your hands as required; two low ones and three flat ones, find piano head and enlarge muscles of fish so that tiger's mouth is empty."
3. Keep practicing scales
The scales are backbone of violin technique, and I expect my students to spend three-quarters of their time practicing them.
Scale exercises are very important basic exercises in learning to play violin, but many violin players overlook scale exercises, mainly because scale exercises are not only boring, but difficult.
The main difficulties are withas follows:
First, key is hard to grasp, especially when you see key with more than three sharps and sharps, intonation is not sure, and first thing to be wary of is psychological;
Secondly, rhythm is difficult to control, especially duration of notes of a descending scale is more prone to disorder;
Third, fixed steering wheel feels bad, shape of hand is wrong, and steering wheel is prone to slip;
Fourthly, indistinct ratio of halftones, erratic position of fingers;
Five, it is difficult to hold fingers, thumb is tense, and fingers are stiff and inelastic; Six, two octaves and three octaves are even more awesome.
All scales are boring, but practice of playing scales should attract much attention of every piano student, because it can fix correct hand shape in each position, instill in students an accurate sense of pitch, train students' finger work. and let students learn. The use of various bowing techniques and precise coordination of left and right hands should emphasize change in strength in practice to enrich expressiveness of the performance. In short, what can be learned in gamma exercises can be learned in any other exercises, but no other exercises can replace gamma exercises.
At present, scales we often come into contact with include Helimeli, Kalflesh, Seratik, Shevchik, and so on. All types of large-scale textbooks have their own strengths and desirability, and it is up to instructor to properly select and direct exercises according to level and needs of students. Practicing scale is truly most important basic practice for anyone learning to play piano. Whether you are a professional player or an amateur, it should not be ignored or underestimated.
Pitch is "soul" and "life" of violin, and also hardest part. This is eternal theme that accompanies whole process of learning to play violin, as well as most difficult problem to overcome.
Although it is difficult to master intonation, with right method, after a certain period of practice, it can still reach ideal level.
The most important thing is word "practice"
