“I’m learning 5th position now, but what is the highest position on the violin?”
“Well, let’s see…Shall we count together ? 🙂
I can barely put my pinky at the edge of the fingerboard and play B (highest note above), so for now, let’s say this is the highest position on the violin. That means that the index finger falls on F .
Can you count up while I’m going up each position of the fingerboard?”
“3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9……15 !”
“Well, then we can say that the highest position on the violin is the 15th position.
However, we usually work on up to the 7th position using violin studies.
After that, you will encounter higher notes by playing many different types of music.
You will see higher notes more frequently in First Violin parts in orchestral music.
It’s something to look forward to !”
