How to Play Violin Techno Music – A guide to playing violin techno music. Learn the basics of this genre and find out how to create your own music.


Violin techno music is one of the most exciting and challenging genres of music to play on the violin. This style of music combines the fast-paced energy of techno with the beautiful sounds of the violin.

In order to play violin techno music, you will need to have a good understanding of rhythm and timing. You will also need to be able to play fast and accurately. If you are not confident in your ability to do these things, then you may want to consider taking some lessons from a violin teacher before you attempt to play this type of music.

Once you feel confident in your ability to play, you can begin practicing some basic techniques. One of the most important techniques is called “bowing.” Bowing is when you hold the bow in your right hand and use it to draw the string across the violin’s body. This produces a sound that is similar to what you would hear if you were plucking the string with your finger.

In order to create a bowing sound, you will need to use a fast and even motion. You should also keep your bow parallel to the ground at all times. Practice this technique until you feel comfortable using it.

Another important technique that you will need to master is called ” fingering.” Fingering is when you place your fingers on the correct strings in order to create different pitches. In order to create different pitches, you will need to use different fingers on different strings. For example, if you want to play a high note, you would use your index finger on the A string. If you want to play a low note, you would use your pinky finger on the E string.

Practice these techniques until they become second nature. Once you have mastered these techniques, you will be ready to start playing some easy violin techno songs.

What You Will Need

In order to play violin techno music, you will need a few things. First, you will need a violin. You can either use an acoustic violin or an electric violin. If you use an acoustic violin, you will also need an amplifier. Second, you will need a music stand to hold your music. Finally, you will need a metronome to help keep time.

Step One: Choose a Song

There are many great techno songs out there that would be perfect for playing on the violin. To get started, choose a song that you really enjoy and that you think would make a great techno remix. Some of our favorites include “Babe” by Daft Punk, “Fade Into You” by Moby, and “Alive” by Justice.

Once you’ve chosen your song, it’s time to start thinking about how you want to arrange it for the violin. This is where your creativity comes in! Try to imagine what the song would sound like if it were played on the violin. What parts would be the most challenging to play? What parts would sound the best on the violin?

If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas, don’t worry – there are plenty of resources out there that can help. We recommend checking out some online tutorials or listening to other violin techno covers for inspiration.

Step Two: Find the Right BPM

The tempo, or Beats per Minute (BPM), is an important factor in playing the right techno violin music. You’ll want to find music that is between 140 and 160 BPM. This range of tempo is perfect for keeping a consistent beat while you play. If you find music that is too slow, it will be difficult to keep a consistent beat. If you find music that is too fast, it will be difficult to play the specific techniques needed to create a good techno sound.

Step Three: Choose the Right Key

The key of a song is the overall tonality, or feel, of the piece. It is determined by the number and sequence of notes played. For example, a piece in the key of C major will have a different feel than a piece in the key of G major, even if they use the same notes. When choosing the key for your violin techno song, you will want to consider the overall mood you are trying to create.

Step Four: Arrange the Song

You can use any song that you want to play techno violin music. If you want to, you can even make up your own techno song. You should start by arranging the song into measures. In each measure, you will play a certain number of notes. The number of notes that you play in each measure will depend on the tempo of the song. For a slow tempo, you will play fewer notes per measure than for a fast tempo. You can also vary the number of notes that you play in each measure to create different effects. For example, you could play four measures of eight notes each followed by one measure of four notes. This would create a stutter effect that is commonly used in techno music.

Step Five: Record Yourself

The final step to playing violin techno music is to record yourself. Doing so will allow you to listen back and identify areas that need improvement. It can also be helpful to have a friend or family member listen to your recording and give feedback.

Recording yourself playing violin techno music can be a bit daunting, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. One option is to use a digital recorder, such as a Zoom H1n Handy Recorder. This type of recorder is small and portable, making it easy to take with you wherever you go.

Another option for recording your violin playing is to use a smartphone or tablet. There are many apps available that allow you to record audio, such as Voice Memos (for iPhone) or Smart Voice Recorder (for Android). If you have an external microphone, such as an iRig Mic, you can connect it to your device and get even better sound quality.

Once you’ve recorded yourself playing violin techno music, take some time to listen back and identify areas that need improvement. Then, practice those sections until you’re happy with the result. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to play violin techno music like a pro!
