Bach Adagio
Hey everyone, I've been braving it out on instagram for what felt like a million years to do th 100 days of practice challenge that Hilary Hahn made popular last year. Anyways, I haven't been able to post much here so I'm catching up. I've been learning lots and trying to push my comfort zone by continuing on with the pieces from suzuki book 4 as well as other things. But today, I finally posted my progress with Bach's Adagio. My intonation is pretty shaky in different places, Sometimes I hit the right chords, sometimes I don't. But I just want to keep a record of it right and see how I can improve it later. Today happens to be my 3rd 'violin birthday'. And I suddenly remembered Elke and Jaime will also be celebrating their milestone this month ;-) Congrats to you both!! Anyways, if there's anything you can spot in my playing that I can't see please let me know. Thanks for listening and happy practicing!

Constructive criticism welcome
I'm working Suzuki Book 3, song 6 - Gavotte in D Major. I'm posting the 1st half (Gavotte I).  I totally screwed up the ending.  Where do I need to be focusing?  Constructive criticism welcome.  

Thank you, 
Jerry

Looking to get rid of the scratching sound
Hello, 

I'm new to the community. I learned violin for 4 years in elementary school. A week ago, after being inspired by a friend, I decided to relearn. I have been practicing Schradiek, and found my fourth finger particularly weak. I always get this undesirable scratching sound resonating at the back when I play, especially when I play with the 4th finger. Here's a video of me playing Schradiek I 8. Please correct me if you spot anything wrong! Criticisms are welcome here. https://youtu.be/w7ei7C8v7Kw

My goal for practicing is to get a really warm, connected tone without any scratching sound. Any bow technique advice, 4th finger exercises, or how to improve sound in general, are more than welcome here.

Performance Jitters
Hello all,

Does anyone have some good advice for reducing pre-performance anxiety?  

In 2 weeks I agreed to play along with my wife (she plays piano) for 15 minutes during the intermission of a fashion show my retirement community is putting on.  

We will be playing five songs from musicals everybody knows.  I will be playing the top line vocal notes while my wife plays the melody.  

I have done a couple of one piece recitals when taking lessons 5 years ago and  currently play some hymns once a week at a local nursing home.  Not a lot of "showtime" experience.  The fashion show will have 110 people and I know I will have some nerves...!

Thanks,

Michael

Metal Music Stand
Using a peak metal music stand and looking to cover the front of the stand and shelf somehow to avoid bumping it with the instrument. Try as I may, once in a great while I move with instrument in left hand and bump the stand. I am almost ready to pack it away and use my plastic gig stand instead. Any ideas for covering the face of the stand?

Looking into this new awesome platform
Hi everyone,  I'm experimenting with a platform called Soundslice.com. It allows users to practice along with a video or audio file. You can loop (by clicking and dragging over measures) and you can slow the speed, and it will slow the video too!!!

My plan is to include as a special feature for the future Violin Lab.

Please give it a test run if you don't mind and give me your feedback. The video was not shot well. I was just testing the technology. Future videos would be better lit and closer to the camera.
