A Tuneful Introduction To The Third Position: Violin

Books | Violin

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Artist: Neil Mackay
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor

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.

          A thorough approach to third position.
          A rather old fashioned presentation!

          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.

          In a limited market this has provided useful and helpful practise for a very long time.

          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!

          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.

          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!

          Although required this book gets very little use
