Program Notes on Third Position Study by Caux (ed.) :

This Third Position Study is a basic study of third position for Grade 3 violin students.

It is to be played first on the A and E strings, and then transposed to the D and A strings, and to the G and D strings.

Various bowing patterns are suggested in the score :
  • Détaché in all parts of the bow (middle, tip and nut)
  • Slurs : two, four and eight notes per bow
  • Two slurred, two detached
  • One detached, three slurred
  • Three slurred, one detached
This Third Position Study is an excellent way for the violinist to get acquainted with the notes on each string, in the third position.

Be sure to keep the left hand relaxed and quiet throughout.

Also, the fourth finger must remain above the strings at all times.

The violinist should pay particular attention to good intonation, listening closely for sympathetic resonances.
