Critique Needed for Set 1 Exercise 8
Hi Everyone,

Quick video to be sure I am on the right track for playing staccato.  I know I go off my sounding point and then come back on track.  What I am curious about the most is the amount of attack or articulation.  I tried to match that of Beth's playing.  How did I do?  More?  Less?  The same?

As Always, May The Beat Be With You Always,

Ray

Hi Beth,

Just reviewed and made notes for Open String Duets Set 2 (Yes!)  So it sounds like Exetcise 4 will be a real test on whether I now have the skill sets to play with another person.  Looking forward to playing the exercise.

Feedback welcome
Test driving a new violin with a lullaby.  Any feedback on my playing or the violin welcome.  Yes, I totally messed up the 6th measure.  😀

Hi,

Firstly, Thank you for such a wonderful site, it really is amazing.

My daughter is 7, she will be wrapping up 4 years of suzuki lessons soon, as our financial situation has changed. I'm hoping she may continue her musical journey in this form, although not as ideal as face to face lessons as there is less immediate feedback, at least she may still progress.

My question is that as we don't always have download data to stream videos, how can we download them in order to play them without been online?
I tried last night to stream a video however our limited download speeds in our location (rural Australia), caused the first ten minutes of this video, to take an hour to stream and it used 5 gigs because it keep pausing, thinking and then refreshing. 

I know this is not a fault inherent in your site by more due to the quality of our local server, however I hoping there's a way we could just download the videos relevant to us just once and then have them on the computer.

atm, we are looking at the three videos around, theme from Schindlers List by Williams 
I cant seem to find a way to download them ( without streaming).
Is this possible or are the three above videos only available in streamed form?
I am happy to purchase just those three relevant to this particular piece, in downloaded form if this is possible?

I'm hoping she can perform it in the local Eisteddfod in May, so even really we would be happy if we could just purchase these 3 and after that more just use the site as intended (stream what we can when we have the data available). 

Sincerely
Kate

Open String Duets Set 1 Exercise 7 Marc 2
Hi Everyone,

Took Dianne's advice and made this response video with hopefully an improved bow stroke.  Critiques always needed.  Thanks in advance.

I'm still repeating some of the same problems Beth mentioned before. Unfortunately I still need to keep my fingers lower. I'm not sure how to train myself to do that yet. FWIW I am not grabbing the violin tightly with my thumb. Maybe there's another video to help. Not sure if it's a mental thing or a reflexive thing. I am looking pretty somber here too. Concentration makes me look like a curmudgeon.
I can clearly tell I'm flat on a few of my notes too. Maybe if I slide my fingers tighter at those half steps.
Meh.

New Series
This series has come out from one of my fav violinists, and generates a new video each Tuesday. There are six videos so far. The one that came out today covered trying new setups, among other things. Very timely!

Hi Everyone,

With the tenuto bow stroke do we maintain the same volume throughout the bow stroke or do we allow for for a natural decay of the volume?  Working on the finer details for the tenuto bow stroke in The Open String Duets Set 1 Exercise 7.

Thanks for any thoughts.

May The Beat Be With You Always,

Ray

Thank you very much Beth for the Berceuse piece by Amy Beach and for the tutorials! It's beautiful and I'm studying it!

Critique Time for Set 1 Exercise 7
Hi Everyone,

I struggled with Exercise 7.  Obviously there are many areas to keep working.  Sorry the audio is bad I am not at home so you will struggle to hear Beth's accompaniment over my enthusiastic playing.  The bow stroke is the  dot dash or dash dot.  Depending on what your comments are I will try to record another video tomorrow and use the bluetooth speaker.  That usually works well.  Again I struggled with being able to hear my part rhythm wise and blending in with Beth's part.

Let me know where you think I can improve and again I will try to repost tomorrow afternoon or evening.

May The Beat Be With You Always,

Ray
