Hi Beth, regarding the gathering in July next year...do you have any suggestions as to some reasonable/nice hotels in the area ?

I'll be pondering some ideas for activities and workshops. For one, how about a violin/bow check-up ? Also, if we could get some music beforehand to work on so that we can play some chamber pieces perhaps ! That would be fun ! I would also VERY much like a lesson from you Beth ! That would be the highlight of the week for me !

Hi Beth / Everyone - just reviewing the Spiccato videos and I'm having problems controlling the bounce.

I didn't catch in your video if you said how to control it? Is it just the first finger? First and pinkie? all fingers? hand? wrist!?! I'm guessing just a small amount of pressure from the first finger and the hand stays still (ie no vertical motion of the hand or arm?)

Thanks! Simon

I'm watching this video, "Elements of Tone Production: Bow Pressure" and wondering... I think my violin is really loud. I play in the middle rather than near the finger board. A lot of times I have a hard time hearing the video so lately I've started trying to play by the fingerboard to soften. Is it better to practice loudly? i'm not really into the dynamics much when i'm doing the drills. Should i worry about loudness at all until i'm actually focused on it? I have a mute but i don't like that it sounds sort of flat and doesn't have the ring i'm looking for since intonation is a primary focus right now.

Hi Beth - can you add the 'expression' tag to this video so it shows up with the others in the series when using the Tag Words filter?

Thanks!

This is SO SO SO true, I actually discovered this only recently believe it or not all by myself after 4 and a half years of learning violin! no violin teacher ever pointed it out to me before! my teacher just tells me 'you're out of tune!' what's the matter! G is just next to D! you go 3rd finger on D string next to 3rd finger on A string it's 'simple'! and I was going just 'next' string with my 3rd finger but I was STILL out of tune!!! so I discovered ALL by myself only in the last few weeks what Dr Kirsten Yon is explaining in this video!! 'the physiology of intonation'! as I grew up more and more 'frustrated' by 'my intonation problems' and thought I was 'useless' I really analysed with a spyglass what was going on and discovered just this! and tonight I was going through the videos on violin lab only to discover it was all explained here LOL LOL

Hi everyone. I'm enjoying your posts and responses. I'm in Victoria Texas playing a wonderful festival. Living without wi-fi!! Will be back to Austin on Sunday. Thinking about you all, especially during rehearsals.
