A Tuneful Introduction To The Third Position does not deal with the changing of position of the Left Hand. The only movement is the initial one from First to Third Position. Once this has been achieved, the hand remains in place throughout each melody. Students should remember to keep the thumb opposite the forefinger when the hand is in Third Position.

Ipswich GB Music teacher
A very good collection of tunes which help students to adjust and become comfortable in the new (3rd) position.
No accompanying piano accompaniment. A piano accompaniment was found after a long search.

Customer Rating Although required this book gets very little use

Customer Rating I had never played my violin in third position and this book takes you through all the steps also with plenty of pieces to play!

Customer Rating A really good book for progressing in third position. It takes each string at a time and the pieces to play are gently improving and stretching technique without being boring!

Customer Rating This is a really useful book for introducing 3rd position. It starts simply, introducing the 4 notes on each string with the same finger pattern and later in the book uses different finger patterns. Some of these are quite tricky due to the variety of keys that are used, but worth coming back to if you struggle with them initially.There is also a book for 2nd position. It has the same idea, but the pieces are much harder and it is obviously meant for more advanced students.
