Interesting Book
This new ebook in two volumes is for the very advanced player to become more comfortable with high positions on the fingerboard. The author encourages left hand facility, but suggests focusing solely on sound, and promises that briefly performing some of these these exercises daily will provide immediate results in improved tone quality in high positions. The preface is written in Italian and English. The author is 1st violinist with an orchestra in Milan.

Something to strive for!

Questions About the Workshop Pieces
To Beth and others that are attending the England workshop:

I'm working on Pachelbel's Canon and I've been using a score that I found online.  I'm planning to play the violin 2 part and I've noticed that when I was looking around, there are many versions of this piece.  Some of the arrangements have only 2 violins and some have 1 violin, a viola and a cello, etc.  The violin 2 parts look different with each arrangement.  Do you have a "standard arrangement" that you want us to work from?  If so, please send it over.  I don't want to be practicing something for a few months, only to find out at the workshop that everyone else has been using different music. 

My second question involves the Variazioni La Follia piece.  Again, I'm planning to play the violin 2 part and I see that there are 2 parts to that: A & B.  I assume that we learn them both.  There are also different Variations below the theme.  Again, I'm guessing that we learn all of them.  Let me know.  (This is a really cool piece, btw.  So dark and moody.  I love it!)

I apologize if I'm asking questions that have already been answered elsewhere.  We've had some serious rain here and our internet and phone have been out, so I've been in the dark lately.  Thanks!

I like it when the violin gets out there live! This instrument of course does not sound like an acoustic, but it sounds very pretty.

He will be out there on Valentines Day also.

Suzuki 1
Hi, Just wanted to write that I have been playing in Suzuki 1 for 5 weeks now. I had lots of issues- missing techniques, probs w/vibrato, missing concepts. I rolled all the S1 tutorial and performance videos into my home page and worked them to tempo. I love Suzuki w/Beth! This is fantastic training. Beth I can hardly recommend this track enough! And to go back as an intermediate player w/issues- what a tool to have. I am cleaning up Happy Farmer & Twinkle variation IV, and then I have 1 more to go. Loving it! :) Also, no wonder Suzuki students tend to play so well- these are very challenging pieces- that build on one another, as you said! All my other work continues as well (stack of important tiered studies).

Pachelbel Canon progress..
Hey guys,

Here's a video of me polishing Pachelbel's Canon in D. 
Very excited to play this on the workshop with you guys =) 
Sorry for the delay on posting this video Maria..

In this video, I'm really just applying what I've learned so far regarding polishing a piece. 
Would love to hear some feedback on how I can improve my playing.
Thanks so much for listening =)

When you're trying to sleep due to splitting headache and b. spasm, yet the 1st variation of La Follia keeps on playing again and again in my head.

Socorro!
