How to Play Air from Suite in D by Bach | Violin & Viola TV #207

by | Nov 10, 2015 | Repertoire | 0 comments

As requested by a Violin & Viola TV viewer I’m making this video.

Robyn asks:

I would like to play Bach’s Air, but I have problems with the timing. Are there any hints you can give? I may have sheet music that is too difficult.

In this video I’m going to teach you how to play this piece.

You can learn the rhythm by feeling the pulse of the piece on the eighth notes and by writing ‘count lines’ into your sheet music.

In the video I play the piece and stop to explain how to play it.
