This was in my inbox.  There are some fabulous DVD master classes from Masterclass Foundation.. Maxim Vengerov is one of the clinicians. I've not seen a discount from this site advertised before, so now is a good chance to hint to a friend or loved one, what you might like for Winter Solstice.

33% discount on ALL DVDs for this weekend only! 

Dear Beth, 

Here is a gift idea from the Masterclass Foundation.  Use code 33DEC (case sensitive) and get 33% off ANY of our DVDs over this weekend only. That's from now until Sunday 11th December.   

Subject to the usual Royal Mail and Royal Airmail delivery terms we will endeavour to get your DVDs to you in time for Christmas.  (UK and Europe only)


There - that's given you a present idea for your music loving friends!



With season's greetings


Joanna Pearson,

Masterclass Foundation

Hi Beth, I have been watching the finger-spacing video in connection with scale rounds. I like your clear terminology for the patterns! In the PDF, there is a small typo for the 6th pattern, isn't there? It should be the 2-3 "up-arrow" 4 pattern. Your sheet has "down-arrow".

I have a very "beginner" type question about the different positions.  How do you choose what string & position to play a piece in?  For example, I printed out "Amazing Grace" (without watching the video yet) and noticed the fingerings ~ I looked at the chart from the resource section and figured out what position & string to start on.  Also, do you use the Roman Numerals to mark the changes to different positions?  I'm having fun trying to wrap my brain around this new concept.

If Santa came to your house, what would you ask him for this year, Musically?  (An original "Strad" doesn't count)

When one instrument sounds like two are playing.

This guy is freaking amazing at this technique.

Ok boys and girls; if you don't see yourself working for first chair, maybe you're destined to take you violin skills to another 21 Century level. Here is Jason Wang again playing his electric violin with some electronic distortion effects happening for a hard rock - guitar sound. You can literally close your eyes and imagine this is a heavy metal lead guitar playing.

It may not be your cup of tea music wise, but watch Jason's face and see how much fun he's having playing this for us.

To each and all of you at VL:

Approaching the end of the year 2011, I will like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during the year in accepting my non-perfect way of writing in English due to the fact that I born in Chile, and after living in Florida, USA for the last 47 years, my mind still have to translate to English what Iím thinking in another language. If someday I did or will use an inappropriate word, I want all of you to know that it was not and it will never be intentionally.

If this is not too much to ask, I will like to know from each of you at least three of your goals for the year 2012, naming first the most important and meaningful to you. I thank you in advance.

Here are my three most important:

1.- If 2012 is not better, to be at least as good as 2011.

2.- Play a nice vibrato. Is sloooowly getting there.

3.- Rent a home for 2 or 3 months up north US during summertime to be near to my family. Not during winter because we Floridian think that is an state of emergency when the temperature drop to the middle 50 degrees Fahrenheit (approx. 12 Celsius).

I will like to take this opportunity to express my warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2012 to all Violin Lab's members.
