Do not photocopy
Play G string [the thick one]
.
This is E string [the thin one]
Next t o t his is a 4/ 4 bar not at ion.This is t elling you t o count each bar in 4 beat s.
I n t his case you have only r est s, not hing t o play.
This is the key of G or TREBLE KEY. The violin is using only this key for music notation.
2
1
Tr ack 3
G and count 4
for the full note value
This is a rest
for a full note
Do not play ,just count.
1......2.......3......4......
3
With this repeat sign
you must play again
only from the previous
repeat sign,not from the begining.
This is the same song
no need for an other
mesure sign.
Do not lift bow,
Just change strings
moving your elbow for G string
This is a repeat sign.
You must play again
from the begining.
4
This double bar is the end
of the song , not a repeat .
While you play look ahead
to the next line.
The movement of your bow is much bigger
at the point.Do not make a sound
when you change strings.
5
This sign is equal with a short breack
just egnouth to change strings.

Move your eyes fast to the next bar ,or play slower.
If you can not follow music and play , just move your eyes not your head without playing , than learn the notes
by just looking at them , than you will play much easier. After all that take care of your sound quality.

What is t his?
This is t he same song wr it en in half value not es.
Real easy : count t he same ,play t he same slow t empo..is your choice aft er all .
Just r emember a Cr ot chet has 2 quaver s AND 2+ 1= 3.
The dot t has a value : half of t he value of t he not e befor e,j ust like for a minim.
So you have 3 quaver s t o count one by one.
2
Do not play this ,just do the maths.
Those two quavers
legatto will make a
crotchet , but this writing
is highly unprofessional
This looks good,
and is played
the same.like the previous bar.

this song will make you smile.

This is the same song
written in 2/4 mesure
with a crotchet for a beat.
You are suposed to play twice the speed ,
but quality is important not the speed.
Choose a convenient tempo and enjoy it.

While you play D move your elbow under the violin
and be ready to articulate C with 3rd finger.
