Intonation refers to the accuracy of pitch, where notes can sound higher or lower than expected if the performers are not well-trained. Most violin students spend much of the effort on intonation in their practice routine.
Bad intonation can dampen the tone quality of the instrument and weaken the harmonic effect of the whole ensemble. The audience will feel uncomfortable or less impressed with a performance with poor intonation.
By knowing the three systems of intonation, we will understand why sometimes the best-sounding note might not be at the right pitch. Besides that, we will learn about how sympathetic vibration and a good left hand technique can help us to play the violin with more accuracy.
