Jamais on n'a vu

French folk song



The French folk song Jamais on n'a vu [Never did we see] has been a favorite for generations of French-speaking children!

Its funny lyrics explain that we shall never see a little dog wearing eye-glasses, nor will we see a mouse's tail in a cat's ear!

This popular folk song has a simple A-B-A-C musical form :
  • Phrase A : measures 1-6
  • Phrase B : measures 7-10
  • Phrase A : measures 11-16
  • Phrase C : measures 17-22
This lively and funny folk song is well-suited for beginning violin students.

It is to be played in the first position, on the A and E strings.

It is particularly helpful for developing bowing technique, especially for retakes (lift circles).

Also, this piece can be practiced starting with an up-bow, thus reversing the direction of the retakes.

Duration : 00:27
