How to Pizzicato Like a Professional
Learning how to pizzicato can be very fun, and is often used in many orchestra pieces. My students first learn the violin without the bow, using pizzicato. Pizzicato is also great for practicing without the bow no matter your ability level so you can strengthen the left hand, and focus on intonation.
Looking for a song that practices plucking? Plink, Plank, Plunk! By Leroy Anderson is a very fun piece that also helps beginner students practice the technique of plucking. They also have this music in an orchestra arrangement. I have yet to find a student that didn't enjoy playing this piece.
