Learn the first finger notes on the violin in the first position

With the first finger in the first position you play one note higher than the open string

It’s important that you can play this in tune reliably, before you move on to learning the other fingers

By placing your finger on the string, you make the vibrating string length short and the note will sound higher.

To find the right note, it’s important that you maintain the reference points of your thumb and index finger on the violin.

Tip: Don’t place stickers on your fingerboard!

It might seem tempting, but it gets in the way of your ear training. Use this violin tuner instead.
