Some basic violin skills
First, how to hold piano:
The violin is part of violin performance. The correct posture is to put violin on collarbone, clamp it with lower left jaw, align back wall with middle of throat and form a 45 degree angle between body of violin and shoulders of person, but during performance, some people do not pay much attention to holding violin. The headstock is too low, headstock is too low, it will add weight to left hand and bow will slide easily onto neck. As for height of neck when playing, it is better to be higher than lower. The high headstock can tilt weight of violin towards neck and shoulders, making it easier to play in high positions. With regard to holding piano, remember that brute force and any coercive force must not be used to destroy natural environment, permanent balance relationships, and balance system. For some people with a long neck, use of shoulder pads is a solution, but you should pay attention to shape of shoulder pads, shape must be correct, not all people use shoulder pads in performance, for people with a short neck, without shoulder pads works better.
2. Bow skills:
Whether a piece of music is played beautifully and can correctly express content of music is inseparable from quality of bow. Bow movement plays a key role in playing violin, so we must pay special attention to practice of bow movement and master some of skills associated with it. When bowing, entire upper limb is in motion, main link is extension and flexion of forearm, and at same time, shoulder, wrist and fingers must be coordinated and interact. When some beginners draw bow, especially when drawing lower half of bow, upper arm is pinched. This is a problem. When drawing G string, upper arm must be raised at shoulder level because right hand is drawn. with a bow. The angle of movement of each string is different. When pulling D, A and E strings, they can be lowered sequentially, but elbow cannot be raised above wrist.
Three, pronunciation practice:
Sound can be divided into tones and noises. Musical tone is created by periodic and regular vibrations and has three outstanding characteristics: intensity, pitch and sound quality. The timbre of an instrument is determined by overtones it contains and their relative strength. Timbre is tone of sound. This is not only a good pronunciation with resonance, but also includes chiaroscuro, hue, stagnation, hardness and softness of tone. Its change is based on style and mood of various pieces and individual player change with feeling.
Good and variable basic timbres can be obtained through practice. You need to listen to famous performers and imitate more. The purpose of imitation is to test and improve your own pronunciation skills. When you can control bow well, move it skillfully, and use vibrato technique well, you can work together to find a satisfying and aesthetic tone.
The violin is musical instrument closest to human voice. The main characteristics of good pronunciation are soft, resonant, clear and even. To be full of attraction and artistic emotion, you must master changes in strength of sound, that is, changes in musical intensity. There is a wide range of variation in intensity of music, including strength of sound, difference in voltage, and harshness and softness of sound. What effect is being used, what kind of bow is being used and where is point of contact are all specific. As a rule, you need to practice bowing techniques such as strong, weak, crescendo, crescendo, pause, and even. When playing a strong tone, point of contact of string should be close to bridge and speed of bow is relatively high. Add some external force to right hand as needed and use natural weight to eliminate artificial forced finger pressure. , When playing with a soft tone, point of contact with bowstring should be near fingerboard, speed of bow should belazier.
The fingertips of left hand are weakest part of our body. Only knuckles are used to perform task of lifting fingertips. The function of knuckles is to make contact between fingertips and strings. When playing, raise your fingers and knuckles as high as possible so that contact between fingertips and strings is determined by weight of knuckles, and it is easier to find right timbre in music.
Summarizing, we can say that way of playing violin and different movements have their own characteristics of movement, and all of them are inseparable from general law of relaxation, naturalness and balance of various parts of body. Any local movement in process of playing violin will have a connection with other movements of body. If used incorrectly, it can interfere with sense of flow that comes with balanced movements.
