Enjoyed the webcast Beth ! Very informative !

Would you be thinking about having the next one on purchasing a violin ? Especially....positive and negative things to look for when purchasing an older violin.

Beth, when learning spiccato, is one of the goals to be able to feel the vibrations in the right-hand fingers even while exerting contol over tempo? I'm able to feel the vibes while bouncing the bow and I've just introduced the horizontal swing and control over rythm.

Hi Beth, I've been working on Amy Barlowe's "In the Style of Bach" (cool piece!). Is there anything you can tell me about starting that out in those first 3 notes. I can't seem to get the forte/diminish quick long bow short bow thing quite right.

BTW...Great practice guide with these pieces but not being classically trained I often have a hard time figuring out what she's trying to say. \:-/

Hi Beth, I noticed that in the vibrato lessons, yours and Dr Redfield's words are conflicting in terms of whether the hand should rock forward from a neutral position or backward. Why is that? In practising, I find that for 2nd and 3rd fingers, it's easier for the hand to knock forward. But with the 1st finger there's little room of motion and I prefer to use Dr. Redfield's method. Is it ok to use different motion for different fingers?

Hi Beth, I've intigrated the whole bow exercises into my daily practice. Along with finger tapping, retakes, hooked, and string crossing. Now I've begun to intigrate finger motion. I'm hoping to be on scales by June once I've also intigrated detache, legato, marcato, martele, staccato, and spiccato. On your video: Finger Motion at the Frog you mention tilting the bow so that just a few of bow hairs are touching. And on Dr. Stephen Redfield, part 6: Finger Motion you comment when Dr. Redfield also tilts his bow. Do we usuall want to use only a few bow hairs during a whole bow stroke or only if you want to achieve a softer sound as in the example in Finger Motion at the Frog (near the beginning of the video).

I finally did it!

Got my practice done this morning, then I took my violin to the Doctor. lol
I'm getting new strings put on along with a violin check-up with EKG and all. :-)

The Luthier will also put parchment on the bridge where the E-string is trying to burrow through like a rabbit. I won't have it back for a full day (to give time for the glue to set), but I should be good to go tomorrow evening. Just in time for practice time. I don't know that I will play any better, but I do hope that the sound will be definitely improved :^p

New Year's Resolution

Here are my resolutions again: Better awareness during practice. Faster vibrato. Primary awareness on bowing, not left hand.

I am uploading two videos, one with "Sad Violin", the other with a piece in the style of Vivaldi by Amy Barlowe (Diane recommended her book a while ago.

Any feedback is highly welcome, particularly on aspects that need improving. Thank you for listening.
