Here is a great video to help you practise at home with a pencil!

Your cardboard violins look fantastic! There are going to be really helpful for you to learn the notes of the strings. Please leave me a comment to let me know how you are getting on! Meanwhile take a listen to both classes play. What do you think?

Our first violin lesson!

Violin lesson 1

Well done year 5! I was so impressed with your hard work this afternoon. You were really good at following instructions. This week your homework is to make your self a cardboard cut out of a violin so you can learn the string names and get practising with the finger positions. But don’t panic – I can give you a template to get you started.

Thanks again for all your hard work and I look forward to seeing you for lesson 2. Next week we are going to be looking at how we hold the bow.

Meanwhile you might want to watch these awesome violinists and listen to them describe how they learnt.Leave me your comments below.
