How to Play Schubert’s Ave Maria on the Violin | Violin & Viola TV #216

Play the violin better by doing this effective warm up routine before you practice! You'll learn bow hand, sound and scale exercises.

I use the first and the third position. If you can’t play the third position yet, it’s possible to play everything in the first position.

Watch this video and I will walk you through this piece and tell you all about the fingering, bowing en rhythm:

Some general tips I give in the video:

  • Always keep the accompaniment in your mind while playing the solo.
  • Practice the rhythm very solid first. After that you can take more freedom.
  • Play it very smoothly.
  • Listen to singers performing this piece and play it like you would sing it.

Love,

    Hi Zlata
    I really enjoyed the video, I’m a beginner on the violin. I would love if you could make a video of viva LA vida. I’d love to learn that one. Still working on my vibrato. Thank you for all your help.
