Music - An introduction to the violin!

This week we had our very first lesson with violins. In order to effectively play the piano we have been learning some theory about the instrument, including: the names of the different parts (e.g. bow, strings, the f-box, the pegs and the bridge. As well as this we focussed on the different names of the strings and learnt a way to remember their names – see if your child can remember at home! To end our first lesson, we played along to a country tune using the G and the D string to represent the beat. We’ve made so much progress already: we can’t wait to see how good we are by half term.
