Tips to improve?
Hi Everyone...

Just looking to get some more helpful feedback please.  Only my second video and I think i've learned a lot compared to my last effort.

Just over 18 months practising the violin and I really enjoy it and hope to improve with any suggestions you can offer.

rhythm challenged
I have a ways to go on counting but I am thinking once I get it down the counting one will sound much better than the not counting one.  I think clapping seems to make sense, will start doing that as well. 

I like the pictures of the drums in Beth;s reading notes videos, and will go review again.

Oh my God!! I was practicing, eyes closed, listening, o lot of attention, very concentrate... and a bumblebee pass near my ear. The fright was so big that my violin fell to the ground. Is it serious? Does someone know if the reparation will affect the sound?
The good news is that it seems an open seam in the top plate, and not a crack. 
Pictures inside.

Processing Benslow 2017
Stephen Redfield worked with me on this piece, the Variations in A, attributed to Paganini, at the England workshop. Stephen re-invented the piece (on the spot!), bringing out the flair and grandeur of a bel canto opera, including improvisatory elements. Watching the masterclass and then the new video, I appreciate even more what a treat it was to perform the piece live for "Team Benslow" and to get such amazing input. It has been a beautiful experience. Thank you all for listening!

I am really lousy memorizing music. I now need to memorize a few pieces and I chose these because they have repetitive patterns so I thought they would also be easier to memorize, but no... especially when I have two almost identical parts but the ending is different - I newer get it right (and playing by ear does not help as the other is "correct" too).

Grateful of all your hints and tricks that help you memorize music. So please, share what is working for you.

Benslow jam session
Benslow was so amazing! Eating five times a day (or more!), working on music constantly, and sometimes we even got together to play for fun. Here's a short video of Jen on piano and Lily and Karin on violin, playing a Manx tune that Lily taught us. Enjoy!

Buying a violin: JTL Mirecourt or a Gliga?

I'm a novice a bit confused about how to upgrade my violin.
I have been seeing quiet a few good reviews on the Romanian made Gliga violin (available in Moscow for a great price when I travel) and I have stumbled upon a few Mirecourt JTL from a  reputable online seller... I'm not sure which one I should go for? My feeling is for the 1940 JTL....

Thank you for your advice!
