How to Play a Fermata on Violin
Welcome back to Violin Tutor Pro. I’m going to explain to you what a fermata is on the violin and my reference is Suzuki Book 1 will give us number 12 andantino and fermata looks like this; it’s a dot with an arc over it. What it does is it’s put over the top of a note in music, any case, the ending of a phrase where you’re going to settle the end of a phrase and then go into the next phrase but not right away. It’s kind of like a little break.
So, I’m going to first play this particular section of andantino without the fermata and I’m going to play it with the fermatas so you get the idea.
The whole section just seemed to kind of blend together. They didn’t have any kind of like resolution. So, fermatas are going to help out with that by giving the ending of one of those phrases kind of a resolution and then the beginning of the next phrase, okay. So, now I’m going to play the same section with the fermata.
So, right in the middle there, did you see how I kind of had a slow resolution of the phrase? Okay, so that’s what our fermatas going to do. If you like to learn how to play the violin and learn much more things about different symbols, signs and how to play, feel free to visit my website which is at violintutorpro.com. Hope to see you all there.
