For Barb Wimmer
Hi Barb, I thought of you when I saw this video. It's title is Ambient Tones on acoustic or electric violin (for worship music when someone is singing). He also has a couple of worship songs on his channel that are examples. I like his vibrato and use of the bow. His performance on the electric looks like a really nice instrument as well- one I hadn't seen before.

One thing I am seeing more of now than ever are pedal recordings during live playing. I've seen this with street performers, and this artist also does it with worship music.

3 Year Anniversary
Hello everyone. I can't believe it's been 3 years, two days ago, since I started to teach myself violin and I became a member of VL. Congratulations to me for never giving up on this beautiful instrument and thank you Beth for being my teacher, you're great. 
I posted a video about three weeks ago of the song Prelude by Dmitri Shostakovich that my students and I played for a recital. Since it's the only song that I worked on I will played it again but this time I will play all three parts myself inline with my 3 year anniversary. 
My son found  a free site where he was able to download all three videos to combine them together. Like I said it was free, so the video could have been better. There are some bumps in the video but I get what I paid for 😁.  Enjoy!

Endurance practice...But the rest suffered, intonation, bowing etc.



Day 9 practice on violin part improvisation composition of Caccini's Ave M.

I was trying to practice and build endurance but playing quality suffered negatively...

So how you build endurance and still maintain quality sound/playing?


P.S. Jaime, I watched your second video of Ave Maria, it's really good. I hope you'll cont. on and try playing along with the piano accompaniment. Looking forward on your next post! It's also great that you went back to your lesson and that your teacher liked Vrede, I haven't tried it again after that posting wherein Beth gave me corrections and pointers for my next practice. Perhaps tomorrow I will do it...

Verde 2 - with accompaniment

Thirty minutes later after sigh reading trial, tried to play it with accompaniment so I can play the right tempo.

Can't rest/sleep until I somehow semi complete this lesson...Next will be bowing and refinement of tone and so on and so forth.

Going to sleep now, worked last night...

Good night classmates and teacher.

Vrede... lets post !!!
Hi family!
I'm trying Vrede, beautiful tune!..... tried to play the song with accompaniment, but can't get it going with the computer and webcam at the same time.... so here it is.... just the melody.
Hope I see others Vrede performances out there!!! :0)

This "new-old" bowing issue is so evident to me now.... will keep working on it! :0)

Hi Everyone,

Began learning Simple Gifts last night.  So, of course, I made the right and left hand practice pages.  Then went back to the very beginning for learning the piece.  First, listened to Beth's recording, found near the beginning of her tutorial video.  While listening I followed along, tapping with a pencil, with the sheet music.  I did this many times and will now make this piece part of my daily rhythm training.  I then went on to clap at tempo, the melody.  I found the measures where I lost the rhythm.  Putting an asterisk on that measure and then found a tempo where I could clap correctly the slow-down tempo.

This morning I applied clapping to just the accompaniment.  I needed to know what my partner was doing right from the start of the learning process.  THIS part, for me, is new.  I usually waited till later in the learning process to integrate the accompaniment.  I am thinking this change will quicken the initial learning phase.

Another change I have found, is that learning the rhythm is quicker which I am VERY  pleased about.  Where last year it took 154 days to nail down the rhythm for Moon Over Ruined Castle I have now shorten that process to less than a week.   Working on the bow and left-hand lines during practicing ( do not worry Beth not at the same time.  :)))  ).

Treating Myself To An All Things Music Day

As part of my practice, today, I am applying Beth's lesson for not moving to the next note until I know where I am going in relation to where I am and applying that to practicing playing the ring tones on all four strings.  Next stop Arpeggios.

What's Vrede? Vrede = peace, in Dutch; (= Friede, in German). In violin or music language would be what?

Anniversary
I’ve just renewed my membership and am starting my third year with Violinlab. I wanted to share my Anniversary! This is the only online site that I am consistently “loyal” to, having the right combination of lessons, community and input from Beth. It is constantly evolving with new ideas.

Here’s to many more years together 😀
