Once you have the note structure down, you should increase the speed of your playing incrementally so that you can become better at making transitions in between notes.
9. “Amazing Grace”
While this song has been around for hundreds of years now, it is still a song that a lot of people want to learn when they try out an instrument for the first time. Fortunately for those that are beginner violinists, “Amazing Grace” is deemed one of the simplest songs that you can learn on the instrument. It’s slower transitions in between each note offers a lot of time to replace your fingers on the next note, making this a great song to teach you finger placement and smooth transitions.
8. “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”

The other reason being that this is meant to encourage younger children to want to pick up the instruments and play songs that they know and recognize. “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” is a classic kid song that you can easily play with a little bit of practice.
