I'm going to be tackling Schubert's Fantasia in C Major for violin and piano next semester, and I've started practicing it already. The first note alone is probably the hardest thing in the piece. My teacher simply advised me to set the metronome to 60 for the eighth note (which is roughly the tempo I'll be taking for that introduction)and try to gradually increase the amount of notes I can play in a single bow. Is there any other less straightforward method you'd recommend? I feel that what he advised me to do is skipping some crucial step which doesn't allow me to produce the tone I want to.
