Hi:  I am a 57 yr old engineer who started playing the violin four years ago.  I recently joined Violin Lab and find the videos so interesting that I decided to view them from the very beginning.  After looking at your video on how to use a shoulder pad, where you mentioned that the feet are adjustable, I began to wonder if I was playing my violin at the correct angle, that is the amount to twist about the long axis of the violin with respect to the horizontal.  I play mine at about 45 degrees.  Is there a "correct" angle, or at least what do most of the great violinists use?

I've actually started practicing 'Song of the Wind' with the idea of send both videos at once, but after some thought, I decided to go ahead and send just one at a time.  The feed back has been so great that I thought it would be best to put into practice feedback from each lesson to grow with the next.  I want to say that the 'E' string doesn't sound the same at home here as it does on the video.  Maybe one of you knows why the difference.  One thing I notice about my playing is that, in my mind, I'm relaxed.  Video says different.  Great tool.  Here's Lightly Row:

Beth; With regard to the new mic, It sounded to me as if you had a cold, or nasal congestion. Perhaps you did, I don't know. The other thing is that many times your voice did not come across as clear as it does with the other method (mic). This sounds rather negative, I know, but maybe all it needs is some adjusting and getting used to.

I am 45 yr old who had wish to play violin but never managed any time except a month back. Though teaching kids is a big business here, but I found out that nobody agreed to teach me, when, they learned that I want to learn violin just to play it.

But eventually I got one teacher who, himself, is also learning how to teach violin (he is an well established and an exceptional cello teacher in the area of NJ where I live).  So we both are good here (kind of teaching each other), except that, I shall need additional help for my techniques...hope that here, in violin lab, I shall get some.

For now my question is...I , so far , failed to figure out how I shall follow the instruction where it says "keep your 1, 2 finger down on D string and play A string"...my fingers need to be cut into two third to do that. I tried my best by bringing my left elbow as maximum as I can etc. etc. Sometimes it happens (mostly with only finger 1 down) but most of the time the finger on D string also touches A sting. I managed to sprain my left elbow, left shoulder but with no luck...can anybody please help with any advice. Please note I am just one month old in my violin quest......

Pretty please…and many thanks in advance…

Have you ever noticed small specks of dust seemingly dance in the air?  I just came back from the symphony and heard the principal concertmaster for the L.A. Philharmonics play Mozart on a 1667 Strad.  The notes hung and danced on the air.  I will be hearing and feeling those notes for some time.
