Hi Everyone,

I am starting on a new minuet, by Mozart -Don Giovanni.  It will be a simpler edition but one where I will be able to play along with the orchestra.  Mozart wrote this piece as part of an opera while he was in Vienna, in the autumn of 1787.

Here are the first 12 measures, for right and left hands.  I have written in a few dynamics and hopefully tastefully as Beth would say.  If anyone sees errors please let me know.  Thanks and you all have a great day!

to be learning
Like Paul Ricoeur (quoted by Olivier Reboul in his book What is Learning?) Which
describes the three stages of the alienation of a know-how:

-1- Stage of fixation where know-how excludes all progress.
-2-Stage of sclerosis, where the habit is no longer at the service of activity, but suppresses it.
-3-Stage of the mechanical where consciousness has deserted the act.

we think that it is "the presence of a non-power at the most intimate of ourselves that
saves the know-how of automatism and sclerosis ".

To learn everything as to teach is also to become unaccustomed ...

These vibrato videos are great!
I started the series of vibrato lessons 6 days ago.  I have to say i find them amazing.  At first it looked weird and embarrassing for some reason but I wanted to really get going with learning and didn't know how to do it. I usually get bored or frustrated with other methods so I'd give up after a few tries.  This time I've been going through each video at an almost tedious pace with a lot of focus.  Having someone to do it along with me (the video) really makes it less boring and i can observe while i work.  Then there's music instead of clicks from a metronome.  This is the longest I've ever kept at it.  I spend at least 15 minutes once a or twice a day. Today i'm up to the 5 flings at 1.25 speed. this seems to be the upper edge of my coordination.  Its a little out of sync at times but i can bring it back.  I'll stay here a few more days.  I start with triple and quadruple flings going through all the speeds before going to the next video.  Just for fun, when i was doing my regular practice, i gave it a shot on a third finger with the bow.  It was an improvement because i could do more than usual and regular. so i tried a second finger and wow, i got the best sound- it was like real vibrato.  It was shocking. I got so excited.  If that's what i'll sound like, i'm so pleased. That should be mmore than enough incentive to keep trying. Thanks so much Beth.

Video order
Why not just have the videos organized in the correct order to alleviate the need to reference the syllabus? Tried checking them in the order listed to add to my queue but they were mostly out of order anyway.

Sonia Lancaster
Score for string quartet baroque transcription
Hello All Happy New Year! I recently transcribed a 4 part recorder work by Frescobaldi into string quartet parts. I have loaded it into Musescore. I would say it's pretty easy to play but has some interesting timings. Hope you enjoy it! Sonia

Scale Exercises
Happy New Year to all the violin
and string players on Violin Lab!

Awhile back Beth posted some scale
exercises that I enjoy practicing
but I have forgotten where I put the
accompanying violin music files.

Does anyone know where they are located?

Practicing and Exploring the G string!
Practiced mode... I just love the deep robust sound of the G string... My heart ultimately melted away! ♥️ Sonata III Adante Opus 19 G minor for Cello, it is now for violin!
