Backing tracks
Hi All,
I tend to use iPads and I need to download the backing tracks to Nina and other pieces. I donít get the option to download on the iPad, I do on my phone but the file is always called getMedia.mp3 which has been used previously and so only ever plays the previously downloaded track. I need to download them because they never play properly in real-time due to a poor internet connection.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Or where I might be able to download them? Ie where are they in the site and not just on the homepage recently added items?

Valerio de Franchis
Accolay concerto
hi everyone

I post a new video of the Accolay, this time on the violin.

I apologize for my grimaces, hesitancies and mistakes
but this piece is a real challenge for me,
particularly the many shifts in the same phrase, the string crossings,
the minor third in the double stop passage and the harmonics.

I wasnít brave enough for the spiccato section so I played it detache.
any comment is welcome. Hope you like it

Day 5 Practice on Nina VLab Tutorial

It's my weekend off so I thought it would be nice to practice outside with the sunlit blue sky, green trees and birds chirping away...

Also I let Lily [our fur tabby daughter] to have some fresh air and sunlight...

Day 6 Practice Nina VLab tutorial - Isolating M6,M7,M8

2:30 Am

Not going to give up until I can fit that D note on M6 I missed on my previous practice...

I believe now it's a legitimate "turn" it took me 60 minutes to fit it in within the piano accompaniment beat Adante speed.

Thank you Sonia for pointing it out, appreciate it a lot...

Carl Bates
Greetings. New to VLab.
Hello all, I am Carl. I'm new to VLab and I'm excited to learn. I had 1 year of lessons back in 2011 but when I moved to a new city (Where I am living now) I couldn't find a teacher so I practiced less and less until I gave up. Now I am suffering from a lot of depression lately and I am wanting something to fill up the time and I love Violin so I thought online lessons would me helpful. So here I am. I forgot most of what I learned before I consider myself to be a real newbie.

Anyway I just wanted to introduce myself. I hope to be learning right along all of you.

Andante Tranquillo
So after a few weeks rest due to De Quervains tenosynovitis I am now easing into playing again. I loved this Andante by Vaughn Williams. Hope you enjoy it.  🙂

Rosin Removal
Every once in awhile I hear mention of Andrea Solo Violin rosin so I'm thinking of trying it. But, I'm guessing that the rosin currently on my bow should be removed before applying the Andrea brand. Does anyone have experience with the Andrea brand and also in removing rosing from the bow hair?

Wohlfahrt Etude op 45 #31

This is an etude all in 3rd position and over all 4 strings.

It is a good exercise for me to move my fingers i.e. from G string 4th finger to D string 1st finger. I tend to lift up the finger to early to move to the next string. Then you get that "pling" sound. It has gotten better but I still have some work to do - as you will hear.

..... and my bowing ..... am working on straight bowing ...... but my wrist is so stiff .....

The whole point of learning this etude is to put emphasis on the 1st and 3rd beat. But that works better at a faster speed. At this slow speed it kind of gets lost. - Can you hear it?

Anything you hear and see - please let me know!!!  Thank you!!!

Jaime - Orlando , Fl
Prelude - Shostakovich
Hi family! I've been practicing Prelude, a short beautiful melody introduced by Beth with a nice practice for third position shifting... very inspiring! Still have to feel more comfortable enough to make more solid shifts, so not to be second guessing myself :0)
Hope you like!
