Attempting to improvise with myself. I think I just confused myself. This is You Raise me Up with one flat b. So therefore this song is in the key of f? And therefore I am playing an f major scale or notes from the f major scale or I think I am playing notes from f major scale to try  and improvise with the song I am playing. F g a bflat c d e f.  Suggestions? Thoughts? It is kinda a train wreck but am I going in right direction? Where to go what to do from here?  Didn’t record face yet as was trying to focus on sound rather than my cringe and oh maybe a few notes didn’t sound so bad. Thanks for listening

Ear Plug Reviews Needed
Hi Everyone,

I found out yesterday that I have 4 issues with my ears.  Easy quick question-If you use ear plugs (protection) what brand works for you?

Exciting times
Hello my Violin Family,
I wanted to share some exciting news, because “normal” every day acquaintances won’t really understand!

I live in rural area of Australia and that means few string players and fewer teachers/orchestras. For a while 4 of us have been playing together in a string quartet (meeting regularly and doing a few gigs, Weddings etc.) We sometimes get professional musicians who come from Melbourne (600km away) and do outreach programs. Last year we were lucky to have John Noble who plays with Orchestra Victoria come and spend some time with us. He has a quartet program and he invited us to join! This is a first for our area and basically means we will have professional mentoring and guidance, both in person and remotely, from John and members of the Flinders Quartet We have all been working hard to get this off the ground because it relies on sponsorship funding and we have just found out that we have been successful in securing funding from the local council and local community members who are keen to see string playing thrive in the area.

We will be joining the other groups in November to play in Melbourne at the Recital Centre. 

Just thought I’d share

Please critique!

I have been working on a new piece for a while now. I just started getting lessons again which I am really excited about.

I am trying to practice regularly now and for longer and have been seeing a little progress, but I am still not where I want to be with my sound and vibrato especially. 

In this piece I am supposed to be working on dynamics (during a few weeks off of lessons) and I am hoping to get some feedback on that as well as any other advice you all, especially Beth can give! 
Thank you!!

Does anyone else have this problem of shifting to third and finding they can't stop accidentally hitting other strings (whereas in first position, this is not a problem)??

Hi Beth, will there be any possibility of translating the lessons of scales into Spanish?

Wonderful violin journey
I've been using for a while and I can clearly see the improvement. Thanks for all the considerate videos made by Beth. I'll continue my studying and practicing, and keep the passion for violin. It's really changing my life.

BTW, Beth has a good taste of wearing, and she can hold on all kinds of styles. I like it.

Help with creating drones on TE Tuner app
Hi Beth:  I am enjoying the course so much and learning a lot.  Thank you so much.  I am attempting to make the drone option work on the TE tuner app by going to SOUND, then trying to make it drone two or three note chords, but I can't get it to do that.  I played with the U, the +M3 and the +P5 and it's doing all sorts of noises, but not a drone.  Can you help me find my way?  LOL
