How to Play Schubert’s Ave Maria on the Violin | Violin & Viola TV #216
In this video I teach you how to play Schubert’s Ave Maria on the violin.
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.
