If you go to the Current Members Page, you'll see that Amy Barlowe has recently joined Violin Lab! It's an honor, truly. I love her Etude book (posted inResources), and she now has new, more advanced Etudes written in the styles of Prokofiev, Tartinin, and Dvorak (Also in Resources) ! 

Here's a video of one of her students playing these delightful pieces.

Hi Beth, A super introduction to rhythmic studies. Looking forward to getting rhythm in my bowing so that everything doesn't sound the same. Question: Have units 1 through 5 been removed from the audio examples for some reason?

Beth, Little problem(maybe) with the workshop registration. I've twice submitted info to the email address and both times gotten it back as undeliverable. Second time I even sounded out the letters to be sure I had them all correct.

Beth, for some reason Dick Stanley's post about the fretless note finder says there are 0 responses....but there are actually 3.

Hi - I am a new violin student. I have rented a violin and have recently had difficulty tuning the instrument. For example both the fine tuners for the A and D string are in so far that I can not turn them anymore.  However, the strings are still out of tune.  I have tried relieving them and working with the peg box and that is not working either.  The peg tuners either become very loose or so tight that they bounce back. Any suggestions on what the issue may be?  Thank you - Dawn

Can someone tell me how the ABRSM grades relate to the Suzuki books?  ie Does Suzuki book 1 equal ABRSM grade 1,etc.
Thanks

Its so funny, because I play the opposite, I am very comfortable in 1, 2, and 3, but 4 and 5 are much harder for me to play.

Hi Beth,
Thank you so much for this site and all your videos, you are a phenomenal teacher.
I have a question... as a beginner I am finding it a bit hard to maintain the little gap between the inside of the left hand and the fingerboard. Should I continue practicing to maintaining the gap (at the expense of learning other things), or should I try to make progress on other skills (there are so many) and continue playing even if I do not always maintain the gap? 

I am nervous that this habit will be hard to kick when I try to learn vibrato eventually.

Thanks again!
Guillaume
