What is Position Play? Some Basics...

September 13, 2013 at 12:42 PM

Violin Lounge TV Q&A about the basics of positions:
"Hello, Its me Valyncia McNeil with, yet another question. Since I am teaching myself to play the violin. I would like to know the meanings of 1st position, 2nd position and 3rd position. What does it look like on musical measures? and how does it apply when playing? Much thanks."

What are positions?

What are the advantages of position playing?

When can you learn to play in position?

How is position play notated in sheet music?

And a little viola joke about why violists don't like Kama Sutra...

Is it useful to you? Please let me know in the comments!

Love,

Zlata
