CVB1 Lesson 2

Creative Violin Book 1

In lesson 2 you will learn to play quarter notes.
As we play a little faster than half notes, you would need a smaller piece of the bow, best in the middle.

Lesson 2: Quater notes

Separate quarter notes.

In this lesson we will already push the tempo up a notch, playing separate quarter notes.
Learn to play them legato: smooth bowing, but also portato: a bit lighter, with little "gaps" in between.
