Violin technique lessons? Pizz: Pizz. is an abreviation for Pizzicato (not pizza;-) and means to pluck the string. A + sign means LEFT HAND Pizzicato. Presto – Very Fast Allegro: An Allegro Tempo is Fast and Happy. Allegro is not as fast as Presto. Sometimes a movement of a piece of music will be called “Allegro”; Piano: Piano is written p and means soft.
Viola: The viola is a little bit bigger then the violin. The viola string instrument is measured by inches no fractions like the violin. The viola is available in 14? – 17.5? but if you need a smaller viola, it is possible to put viola strings on a violin. The viola has four strings which are A, D, G and C.
Violin parts : Chinrest – The violin chinrest is actually a misnomer because when holding the violin your JAW actually sits in this part of the violin. Violin chinrests are usually ebony but also come in many different types. Ferule – The Violin Bow Ferule is a small metal piece that covers the hairs at the frog end of the bow. The hairs and wedged in place under the Ferule with a small piece of wood. The Hairs are not glued in so do not pull loose hairs out, cut broken bow hairs instead with nail clippers or scissors.

How to change atrings? Wrap the new string around the peg: First, rotate the peg so that you can see the small hole where the string should go. Stick the straight end of the string into the hole so that it goes all the way through but does not stick out too much on the other side of the peg or it will get caught on the peg box when rotating the peg. Next turn the peg away from you so that the string wraps around the peg. Try to wrap the string in the direction of the outside of the peg box so that when you are finished the string leads straight to the nut and doesn’t cross across the peg box. Also, try not to overlap the string when wrapping. If the string is the correct size for your instrument all strings should be the exact length to not need overlapping when winding on the peg. Only change strings that are the correct size for your instrument.
