To Jack in reference to his thread on December 29, 2011

Jack, I will like to thank you for the MuseScore 1.1, but for some reason I cannot get to the "Reply to Discussion" area. I read the MuseScore 1.1 tutorial/tips and seems to be better than the program I have. Thanks.

Patricia

Does anyone know where I could get very good quality MP3's of the Suzuki books 1 + 2 that are played at reduced speed but still maintain very good intonation and tone?    I have Amazing Slow Downer (ASD) and use that often with the "official" Suzuki CD's, but the quality of tone when I slow them down is less than I would like.  At times, I can hear the slight (or not so slight) distortions and it is very distracting. 

I live out in the boonies and have little opportunity to play with others, recordings are my primary "group" option. Beth's video's are wonderful, but MP3's are the easiest to practice with because I can set my MP3 player or ASD on "loop".  Using a slower speed helps when I am focusing on integrating a technique or skill into a melody or when practicing intonation.

I have tried using the recordings for the "Step-by-Step" series, but they tune to A=441 and it sounds "off" to me when I play - and I'm still working hard to consistently get the right intonation at 440, so switching between 440 + 441 doesn't seem like a good idea at this stage in my learning.....I like that rich sound when my playing blends nicely with another "person / recording".

Thank you!

Vicky

Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays!

With Christmas just around the corner and then the New Year I thought I'd make a request for a future "Beginner Studies Series" videos based on the Etudes Book Superstudies for Violin Book 1 (Solo Violin) by Mary Cohen [listed on the VL's resources page].

I'm trying to work on a practice routine that incorporates Scales and Etudes and Mary Cohen's book seems like a good place to start.  I know that not everyone practice etudes, but I believe that they are a great tool and I'd love so see some videos on how to effectively practice them.

Beth, I know you are probably overwhelmed with projects already, but I think this would be a good series for us beginners to learn rhythm and our way around the fingerboard.  Please consider it.

Many thanks!   

. . . . Ho Ho Ho to you and everyone!  ;-)
