Hello VL members!

This is a guide on how to post your video(s) here on the VL Community Forum.  

Ok. . . . First things first.

  1. Get your video from your video camera loaded onto your computer (read your video camera manual, it should tell you how)
  2. Once the video file is in your computer, go to and create an account (The youtube site has tons of videos explaining how to do just that; use it to learn how to create your account and how to upload your videos)
  3. Now that you have your video(s) uploaded on youtube, here is how to get it posted on the VL lab website.
  • On the youtube website . . . If you look just below your uploaded video, there is a button labelled "Share"

  • Go ahead and click on the "Share" button. That will display a larger window below the video which contains yet another button labelled "Embed".

  • Go ahead and click on the "Embed" button. That action will further extend the window below the video. The window that has the highlighted HTML code is the information you will need to copy (so keep that in mind). The information below the highlighted window is useful, but for now, just make sure to uncheck all the checkboxes and that the video is no larger than 480 X 360 (for website formatting reasons).

  • If you followed this instructions this far, you are doing great! We're almost there. Now open another window on your browser and go the VL website (, login and click on the Community Tab. Once there you will notice the "Submit a Question" button on the right-hand side (just after the search box).

  • Click on the "Submit a Question" button to start a new thread to post your video or to start a new discussion topic. A window will open allowing you to enter your question and or video.

  • To post your question/comment simply start typing inside the text box. The submit question window allows you to change the font, insert a link, insert an image and embed your video by simply clicking on the displayed buttons. So go ahead and type your question/comment and then click on the "embed" button to open a separate window for you to "paste" that highlighted text code you copied from the youtube website.

  • Once you have typed your text and "pasted" the youtube information into the "embed code for video:" window, it should look something like this:

  • Once you got all the information you want in the text box and in the embed windows completed to your satisfaction (do check, as there is no editing later!), click on the "Submit Question" button.
  • If you followed all the instructions above your youtube excellent video should now be posted on the VL's Community page and it should look something similar to this (if sized @ 480 X 360) . . . .

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.
