Living in the Nano Future
Hi Beth,
For the moment I’m implementing the instructions of your ‘nano-video’ :-) on the piece of my latest post and… how interesting!
I can already feel and hear an improvement in my playing. But what suprises me the most is that it seems that visualizing and focusing on all the ‘right things’ doesn’t leave any room for me to be stressy, or to be occupied with thoughts like ‘oh, no, there is that awkward shift… or about all the things that could go wrong…
A very big thank you from Belgium!
Kind regards,
Frieda

Memorizing Music- Again
I know I've brought this up before recently, but it has been bothering me that I thought there was a piece to memorizing music that I didn't understand. In this video of memorizing a simple piece of piano music, and the dialogue from the narrator, it clicked for me. Memorizing music is no different than memorizing a play (which I can do). I thought it was entirely different somehow, and therefore I was intimidated by it. This video repeats the already presented idea that the music must be learned well before memorizing it, and not to memorize a piece right away after opening up to it. I think I can do this...

Slow Practice
I just spent a week of practice on the 2nd page of the Gavotte in D Major in Book 3, and it was a total waste of time, because I forgot one thing: slow practice.

Working on my bow hand
Hi everybody,
In the last two weeks I worked with the tips I've got from you all and the video response of Beth.
I mainly worked with Schindler's List but today I felt like playing something else with the same mindset.
I really love this piece of Bach but I also realise that there's a lot of room for improvement.
The main thing I worked on was my curved right pinky and my left hand frame. Since my latest update I'm more aware of using more bow...
I look forward to continue my violin lessons on next saturday.
Thanks for listening and thanks for your comments!!!

Wohlfahrt op 45 No- 8
This etude seems harder to play than it seems that it should..........

I wanted to get away from playing only with the top half of my bow!   This etude is a challenge to get me to the frog.  It reminded me of learning to drive and having too many things to think of at once.  I've been working on my pinkie, fingerboard tapping etc. and trying to beef it up a bit.

I found the drones on the site today too, and they do have a zen like effect,
