Giga Partita 2 (Bach)
I started practicing Giga last year and took a break from it for about half a year now.  I'm practicing it again and will work towards playing the entire piece.  This is how far I've gotten with it.

Renew Returning Member

 I would like to know, for the payment of my third year as a member already registered, had you not mentioned a 50% discount?
If yes, then I would be able to sign up for the premium or premium plus package.
Not speaking fluent English, but I understand well enough to listen, would it be a problem that I write you my questions then, that I could then listen to the answer when I received your return video?

Problem with Site Security
Just as a heads-up, there seems to be a problem with the website security. Every time someone changes their password, it seems like many people are getting a list with logins and password as clear text. You should probably look into this right away.

Looking for piano lessons like Violin Lab
Beth, I've learned more from your drill down, step-by-little-step lessons than I have from my private teacher. I'm also learning piano but I'm frustrated with the progress.  My teacher is an amazing musician but a disorganized teacher. Do you know of any piano teachers who offer lessons like you do in Violin Lab but for piano? Thanks.

Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year Beth, happy new year to you all!
I learned so much from this site that I want to say ‘thank you!’ for all the lessons , community posts,  tips… I found here on VL.
 I’ve been a member for 6 years now and the last year I also started with cello lessons and I’m sure that the progress I made on the cello is because all the skills I learned on Violinlab!!!
There are so many things that are different but also the same; like how to learn a new piece, how to practise, …
I enjoy playing violin and cello and at the moment I’m searching for pieces where I can play the two instruments together… So I found many beautiful duets, quartets,… for violin and cello and the piece that I recorded at the end of last year was a piece only for cello, 4 voices…  (site : 8notes.com)
I also found the sheet music for violin and cello, … that will be my next project!
So again, thank you Beth for your fantastic site, thank you all for your input and… happy 2020!!!

Hi,
 I currently completed Beginner stage 2. I have attached the link of the video in which I played the song Go tell Aunt Rhody. I have no violin teacher offline. As such could anyone give me feedback.

7/8 violin
I am thinking of trying a 7/8 violin. I love the instrument I have but now that I am using vibrato, faster passages, etc. I struggle with fourth finger notes. I almost always have to shift up a half step to reach the fourth finger notes. I have small hands and short fingers plus mobility issues/ arthritis from a past injury (horse stepped on my hand and crushed it when I was much younger and riding competitively).  I’m wondering if a slightly smaller violin may help with comfort issues?  Any thoughts on this for those of you who use a smaller violin? FYI- I sometimes play my on my grandsons 3/4 instrument and the fingerboard size is perfect but the violin itself  is too small.
