How to Improve the Intonation of the Violin?

1. Practicing scales is the basis for fixing violin intonation

Practice scales every day, just to get every note right. For most violin lovers and beginners, what they like to practice and play the most are those touching and perfect melodies, and the least like to practice is probably boring scales.

In fact, insisting on practicing scales is the easiest and most direct method to establish and consolidate the abstract position of the inner pitch. In many cases, the stepped or partial appearance of the scale can appear as a melody in the violin music.

In all violin works, those brilliant fast passages and difficult cadenzas are a combination of various scales, at the same time, scales can also establish the frame of the hand and better establish the touch of the fingers.

2. Use hearing to guide the intonation of the violin

For students who have no problems with hearing, the fundamental reason for the inaccurate pitch is that they do not use their ears to carefully identify whether the tones they are playing are correct when they practice the piano.

Hearing has not played the proper role of guidance and supervision. After a long time, you will become accustomed to the inaccurate sound of the fiddle instrument, and you will mistakenly think that the sound you have drawn is correct, which makes the sound inaccurate. never been corrected.

The correct way is: when practicing the piano every day, you should use your hearing to check the intonation. If you encounter an inaccurate tone, you should correct it in time, and don't let it go. Facts have proved that the better the work of correcting the pitch is done, the greater the assurance that the pitch is pressed at one time when the official performance is performed.

In adjusting the pitch of the violin, we must have the courage to give up the wrong position of the fingers when pressing the strings, and be diligent in finding the most accurate position. Don't assume that the position you press the first time must be accurate.

If you are not sure about the pitch of a certain sound, you must practice repeatedly, compare and adjust repeatedly, until you get the sound right.

Doing so not only corrects the pitch and gets the finger-feel of getting the pitch right at once, but also sharpens the hearing.

Sharp hearing, in turn, can help us correct violin intonation more quickly, creating a virtuous cycle of intonation, especially for students with less sensitive hearing.

3. Violinists need to pay attention to the learning of solfeggio

A violinist's ears are like a pilot's eyes. If a pilot has a problem with his eyes, he can't fly a plane. Similarly, a violin player can't play the violin if he has a problem with his ears.

4. Correct violin vibrato is the key to intonation

The basic intonation problem in primary violin performance can be solved by practicing the above three aspects. However, after learning and basically mastering the vibrato technique, some players will have the problem of unstable intonation or even a high pitch when vibrating the vibrato.

Generally, there are three kinds of vibrato: wrist vibrato; arm vibrato; finger vibrato. The methods of vibrating the three violins and the sound effects obtained are different.

Wrist kneading, relying on the shaking of the wrist to drive the finger joints; arm kneading, relying on the shaking of the arm to drive the finger joints; finger kneading, relying on the finger joints to vibrate.
