Beth, I need to focus on nice long, gentle bowing. How do you practice perfecting smooth bowing? Dyan

Hello Beth, I am so happy to be one member more in your www.violinlab.com. I consider your website the best idea for anyone who wants to learn this beautiful instrument ,as the violin is. I agree that learning violin is not only for children, but adult too. I also agree how the lack of time can be a bigger challenge for adults versus children. I have been studying violin almost for one and half year. Ive been learning from Suzuki method book 1 and almost finished with book 2. I have a private teacher who is really good and has helped me a lot. In the very beginning, it was difficult since my hands and neck had to get use to a new posture. I had headaches and pain in my neck, but I did not want to drop it. I kept going forward. Now I do not experience pain anymore. I was able to get the ribbon off from the strings in order to memorize the finger positions by ear. I feel happy with myself what I have learned. I play melodies good, even though there are some nights when I got home from work and I cannot play well because of tiredness. Watching your videos is like having a teacher with me at home. Thats what it makes me happy, I can practice by myself and I can improve. Beth, I want to thank you, the members, and everybody who contributes your website.

Beth, In reference to squeezing the thumb and first finger, I have that problem. Though, things are getting better as I do my lessons with you. For some reason, I squeeze more when I play Devil's Dream. I realize these aren't your type of songs, but I know you can shed light on the difficulties I may have while playing certain songs. Are you suppose to put more pressure on the bow for some song? I just feel so out of control playing Devil's Dream. Things will get better relearning the basics. I am sure! Thank you, Beth Dyan

Beth, Since there is so much to learn, how long should one focus on any one thing? Is it best to bounce back and forth, or what? Dyan

Hi Beth, I've heard how important it is to breath and count notes while playing. It seems like a lot to do, and concentrate on the music, too! Are you counting every note that you play, always?! Dyan

Hi Beth! I have a question about bowstrokes. When you start bowing you are at velocity zero, then you accelerate and sometime later you reach maximum speed. The question: Do you try to reach maximum speed very soon, is there a kind of momentum like when you hit something or so. How do you prepare - physically and/or mentally - this initial movement? (For me it is a little difficult to express this question, but probably you know what I mean.) Thanks.
