TO THE TEACHER --
3rd Position is introduced at this point to widen the exploration of
the fingerboard and to ease the learning of the close 3-4 finger pattern.
The keys of C, G & D are used. The need for good left hand shape
and holding the violin securely with chin and shoulder to make shifting
easier is emphasized again here. The Note People story, "Feelings,"
is an example of a way teachers can help their students to bring out
the musical essence of the pieces they play. The triplet is introduced
with rhythm syllables, word rhythms and violin songs.
