Dynamics on Violin
Welcome back to Violin Tutor Pro. I can explain to you what dynamics are today. Dynamics are the volume of the music. Let me show you how to do that on violin either loud or soft. So, loud section gives you the key by the letter F which is forte. The clef forte, you’re going to use as much volume as you possibly can and also have a lot of pressure downwards. Now, pressure downwards is not going to be from grabbing the bow like this, going like this. Pressure is going to be being relaxed and then you’re index fingers going to push down the stick just a little bit more.
That’s very important to keep the bow flowing and otherwise you’re going to get a kind of crunch sound. So, you have to both of balance of speed and pressure. So, clef forte, I’m going to start right in front following the tip, less pressure on to bow.
For violin that helps give you a kind of better sounding forte also so the shaking on my fingers. Now piano is going to be an exact opposite. You’ve got to use as little bow as possible and it has little more pressures as you pass. We can’t allow having wisp sounds. So, you got to have that bounce also so, I recommend the piano using this part of bow from bow right here and right here. This kind of like your main piano bow section. We’re in there and I’m going to have just enough pressure off of the bow so they are clean sound which can be really soft. So, this is going to be a piano.
I still have the silent tones but this is not newest loud. So those are both the extremes. You have the forte and the piano. It will be lied in between likes mezzo-forte and mezzo-piano which is going to be that much less pressure that much bow. So, you’ll definitely see this in a lot of music as you progress and your journey at that point of violin and to learn how to play the violin you’re free to go to my website which is at ViolinTutorPro.com. We have intermediate, advanced and beginner sessions. We’ll see you all there.
