Three Warmup Steps For Fiddling On A Tune

Like a sprinter placing their feet in the blocks and their hands on the ground, you can do a few things to prepare for playing a tune. On your mark, get set, go…⁠


  1. Check your posture, breathe and relax the body. Bring awareness to what you’re doing now. πŸ‘β 
  2. Visualize how the tune goes. Sing or hum the first little bit. πŸ—£β 
  3. ⁠Play the first note. Get a good sound with the bow. Make sure it’s in tune. Do the same for the first few notes. 🎢⁠
    Then just dive in.⁠

  1. Thanks again for a great video! I would like to know where the print/painting of the boy playing fiddle that is on your wall comes from.
    It looks like an illustration from a child’s book, I love it!

  2. I like your way better than mine. I always forget about my posture and I usually start by looking at sheet music. I’m making a post-it of your 1-3 tips and placing it on my music stand until I remember each time. Thanks!
