Does anyone have suggestions for software for Windows 10 to change the Speed of a practice file without of course alterating the pitch?  I find plenty of apps on my iPhone, I like AnytunePro+, but I need a Windows app to use for the times that my iPhone is occupied recording my playing-:>.

Violin Progress
Hey guys,
I hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I'm posting my 1 year + 9 months violin update. Thank you all for the support and great feedback this past few weeks on my practice videos.  It's been great fun making them and I hope it was useful somehow. 
I will continue to work on this piece and polish the spots where I need to.
But now is a good time to get cracking with the workshop repertoire I think.. ;-)

Thanks for listening x

Workshop music
The responses I got to my questions for the workshop music from a few days ago were so helpful that I thought it might be useful to start a thread where we could collect hints and tips for the workshop music. I did not continue on the previous post because it already included many general comments and kind of chatting about the piece :) - which is nice, but as time goes on it would make a post with tips rather cluttered.

More inside...

A short film about "JOE'S VIOLIN
Hi…I wanted to share this with all of you here on VL Community.  This is a short film about "JOE'S VIOLIN".  It is has been nominated, along with three others,  in the Short Film Documentary category for the Academy Awards coming up.  Be prepared for some tears…it's a very inspiring and moving film.  I hope you enjoy it, as I have…tears and all.  Have a great day and stay tuned.

weaning off tapes
Hi all,
In a discussion with David about his electric violin, I gave him some advice about tapes and it got me to wondering; how did you decide to remove the tapes from your violin? Was your intonation really good or what?

I had two violins so I would practice on one with tapes and then would play a bit on the one without tapes. At first, of course, I was almost completely lost without the tapes but at a certain point my playing on the tapeless violin was not any worse than my playing on the one with tapes. 

At that time, my intonation was still pretty terrible but except for the 4th finger, I was well within a semitone in terms of accuracy (like I said, my intonation was terrible) and so I took the tapes off. Do you think this was too soon?

Today my intonation is still not good but the idea of proper intonation no longer seems impossible. 

I think it might be interesting for other beginners to know of how more experienced players handled weaning off of tapes.

Hi all,
below is the piece that I'm meant to be playing with my chamber music group. My music has about three different bowing patterns, from various differnet photocopies so I though I would have a look online and then photocopy and tippex as everything goes horribly wrong for our group when we get to the turns. Sounds awful but we laugh and we do get better. So I know that it is natural to move as you become absorbed into the music but does anyone else find this level of movement  far too distracting?
Also any advice on how to do the turns I think I might have to write them out until I get the hang of them. I should stress I don't want to come across as mean I think their playing is beautiful and we would be a fairly happy group if we could play at that level.
