Sonia, quite some time ago I made a Fingering Chart for All Keys (it is in the Resources section under Violin Practice and Performance with an accompanying video to explain how it works). I have not played much where I had to make those fingering decisions myself, but when I have to decide I use this chart to figure out what position would be most beneficial for a certain spot.

Hi Sonia, If only!!! I would imagine that subject would be extremely difficult to approach, since artistic choices are so individual. That's why these last two video responses for you and David have been so very good to see. You are both more advanced and are helping us to learn. VLab does have expressive phrasing videos, though- have you seen them? (335-346, & phrasing in 549)

Thank you
Wow Beth, thank you so so much for the great response. It's really helped and given me direction to what I need to do. The tips on arm position are so useful because I feel my pinky is weak especially in upper positions, but now I can really work on that and developing my vibrato.

I haven't look so far ahead, but are there any videos on interpretation, and how to select best bowing/fingering for a piece? 

Thanks again.
Sonia

I really enjoyed your playing. I can tell that you understand the nuances involved with playing this piece. I can't wait to see Beth's video response

Hi Sonia,  it's great to meet you and hear you play  for the first time! You play so well! Very impressive shifting technique. I can't find my copy of Schindler's List. I'd love to make you a response video. Would you be able to email me a copy of your part?
