HI, Beth Just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful video lessons that you continue to produce. I have an idea for a video series and maybe some classes for the reunion in 2012. I would love to see a series of lessons on improvisation on the violin. For a lot of people this is such a mysterious and scary subject, but so important. Especially if you like to go to jams where it's not practical to pull out a bunch of sheet music. I've seen decent guitar players at clinics completely freeze up when someone says improvise over these chords. But it's great to watch players who can just wing it. And once you start to get the hang of it, its like it frees your spirit (corny as that sounds). I'm not sure the best way to describe it but I think you know the feeling I'm talking about. And if you ask people what they would like to be able to do on their instrument be it violin, mandolin or guitar they will say Id love to be able to improvise but they are just scared to do it. What do you think?

Hello, Since I bought my violin 1 year ago Iv felt that the string A is a little bit more scratchy, that the others, so I was wondering if this it can be issue of the position of the sound pole or something about the violin setup or Its just me that I dont know how to play it well. Thank You.

Hello everyone!

I am seeking a little knowledge and a lot of encouragement from all of you who have been playing the violin for a while. I have started to use drones to train my ears and I have notice that with some concentration I can hear "beats" whenever I play lower strings. However the same is not true for the higher strings. I know I am very new at this and I am wondering if the ability of hearing and discerning different pitches comes with training or it's an inherit capacity?

Talk about being discouraged and having all the air out of your balloon. Pretty disappointing.

Well I could use some of your experiences and encouragement that this ability to discern pitches and hear beats is something that I can develop over time with practice. If not, I guess I have to formulate a plan B.

Thank you in advance for any input and experiences that you may be able to share.

Cheers!

Hi, now that I have been playing for a long time now i have been playing harder music that requires shifting & vibrato in other positions. I have been doing really well with all this stuff but the only thing I still have a tendency to do is to go back & refer to notes in 1st position. Is there any way I can stop doing that & if so how?

Hello Beth:

On Lessons 41 & 42 (Guided Practice: Skips)you have some great excercises, which as you mention are also good as warm-ups.

Is there a possibility that you might create the notation for these as PDFs? Not that they are difficult. But it would be nice to have them available in notation to be able to put into our notebooks, to help jog our memories.

I actually have a copy of Finale PrintMusic, and if I ever have some time on my hands, I may just do it myself and send them to you.

Best wishes,

Frank
