This year I noticed how serious was my tempo problem. Around the same time, I have been introduced the Suzuki Method Violin from the 阳光千里 琴声响起 practice group. I decide to practice with the piano accompaniment to improve my tempo.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
I asked 猪猪老师 why Suzuki started with A major (F sharp, C sharp, G sharp). 猪猪老师said if we put our left hand down naturally, we can see the pattern of our finger is 1-23-4. In order to achieve this pattern on the A and E string, Mr. Suzuki started the book in A major.
A Major (F sharp , C sharp, and G sharp) :
(A B C# D E F# G#)
Express joyful, pastoral and Declaration of Love
F# Minor (F sharp, C sharp and G sharp)
(F# G# A B C# D E)
Express: Gloomy, passionate and Resentment
Happy practicing! 🎻
