Learn to play Meditation from Thaïs on the violin with this easy first position tutorial including finger close up and free sheet music:

Dreaming to play Meditation from Thaïs by Massenet on the violin?

I’ve made this EASY version in the first position, so you can enjoy playing this piece at a much earlier stage of your violin journey.

It’s in a different key as the original: G major instead of D major. Because of this everything is a fifth lower and the notes you have to play are not as high. Also I’ve made some other adjustments to make it easier to play.

Fill out the form on this page to download the free sheet music and also get the piano accompaniment. You can play the dynamical sheet music and the backing track at any speed thanks to the Soundslice software. 

Enjoy playing this piece and let me know in the comments what you think! Also suggestions for other pieces you’d like to learn are welcome.

    Dear Zlata,
    Thank you for the music you played on your violin.

    Zlata, Many thanks for sharing your knowledge of the violin. Your love of playing shows and your talent for teaching is a blessing. I wish I could afford your bowing lessons. Maybe someday. May the Lord bless you and your sweet little family too.
