This FREE cheat sheet is great to print out and hand to beginning string students: violin, viola, cello, and bass. I asked my students to keep this in their music folder so that they can reference it during rehearsal and when they're practicing at home.
Exercise for good violin position Some children have a hard time to keep themselves upright while they are playing and tend to "collapse". In that case, give Mr. Bear or any other stuffed friend a ride on the instrument. The child wouldn't want him to fall down. This exercise can also be helpful if your child's bow has a habit of wandering off the Kreisler Highway towards the fingerboard.
