Music for Pre-School

I have been introducing the violin to my pre-schoolers.  We had learned the five steps to hold the violin.  Hold 1, Tip 2, Touch 3, Slide and glide 4, Chin in the Chinrest 5.  Today I added the bow.  Several children got to make an “alligator mouth” with their right hand and hold the thumb under the metal on the “frog” of the bow and their fingers over the top of the bowstick.  I helped them play their two starting sounds, tremolo and changing strings.
