The Schindler's List project - violin progress
Hey everyone,

I am so happy to have finally completed learning the theme from Schindlerís List =). My main struggle with this piece is intonation. It still needs a lot of work, especially where there are big shifts. I am currently working on this piece without vibrato during practice so I can really get it in tune. Thanks so much for watching and happy practicing.

Part of Page 2 Opus 14 no.14

Here's 90 percent of page two...I finally decided to cast away my fears and tried sight-reading to get the melody right somehow.

My teacher always reminded me when in doubt and unsure do it on 1st position first then in position as required by the piece.

So here's my trial sight-reading and practice in first position...Once I get the melody right I will work on position then bowing.

Tonight I decided to use my very first official violin, it's century old 7/8 labeled Cremonese but it's Bohemian :) She was resonant tonight so I chose her for tonight's practice...

Has anyone tried the new Acente strings from D'Addario? I'm not due for a string change yet but have received emails about these strings.

Hunter's Chorus - a staccato study
Hi guys :-)

Here's a video of me getting back to the Suzuki literature to explore articulations on the violin - specifically staccato. This was a really fun piece to learn. In the last two years of violin study, I have not made much effort learning different bow strokes (other than legato). Over time, I hope to build up my technique in this area. Thank you so much for watching.
Happy practicing^^

Just practicing part of Gigue from the Sonata in D Minor. Some challenges.   I got new pegs put on my violin which are great and makes it so easy to tune now. Excited about that. Thanks for listening, suggestions welcome. I probably need to take phrases. My teacher suggested I play it backwards - that would make it  be interesting. I think I will work on the phrases and hard to slow down but gonna try

New violin?
I am thinking it's time for a new violin. I've had my current one for 35 years and while I love it (and it has sentimental value) there are issues with Wolf tones on the G string.

I recently found out there was a violin maker near me, which was a surprise because I live in rural South Australia and there are next to no string players here, let alone luthiers!

So I have to give the violin back on Saturday, or make a decision to buy. 

What would you specifically look for in a violin? I've tried it out for Wolf tones, none heard, also for the resonance which is good. It has inbuilt adjusters in the pegs... any one any views on these?

Practice Session | C Major Scale
Hey everyone

it's been quite some time (again lol).
I wanted to share with you a practice video that I did (and am planning on doing regularly).
This time it is the C major scale that I wanted to practice. The objectives for this session were:

1. Intonation
2. Bowing
3. Notes of the C Major Scale


I'm looking forward reading your comments. I know it is not perfect and I would really liket you to pin-point my mistakes.  Thanks! :)

That "one piece" you can only play


I remember Elke and Beth mentioning with so many pieces they have played especially Beth, she said she can only play Thais when asked on the spot to play something.

I noticed that too on my teacher, I asked her many eons ago to play something for me and yesterday when someone asked her to play on the spot she played the same piece.

So I've seriously decided to make Rachmaninov's Gm opus 34  no. 14 [originally in Dm but like the Gm deep sound] that "one piece" to master and play on the spot.

So do tell me what is your chosen one?
