Anne, that was marvelous. You gave an inspiring performance. The tunes are lively and you played them beautifully. How long have you been playing the violin? I have a long way to go before I will be up to your speed. Congratulations.

HI, I was wondering what happens in a real lesson. i took a few lessons from a local college student, but i don't think she pushed me at all. she teaches mostly little kids so maybe she didn't know what to do with me. No etudes to study, concertos to learn, no plan for the week, not any kind of syllabus. I just played what i wanted, she sugested something minor and said "Good job". I want to find a teacher that gives me the same "torture" that others speak of. How does the Suzuki lesson go? Does the teacher play and then the student mimicks? Is it only one song at a time? how do they learn to read music? I'm just really frustrated because i don't know what to do to help myself. what is the progression?
I have suzuki book 1 and 2 and essential elements 1 and 2. (only just starting the second books) i don't know if i really qualify to be finished with book one. I'm just ready for something new.

Hello Beth, I was just wondering if there was a way to search for a particular subject in the Commmunity page? This way I won't have to ask for something you already answered in the previous pages... Not that I don't want to browse a few pages back, but more than 600 is going to take some time :) Thanks anyway for the great videos and friendly user website. I just joined and it's been very helpful! Guillaume

Hi Beth, I've tried to find this answer on the web, but to no avail. I'm reading a musical score and above many of the notes are either a single number (2,3,4) or those same numbers along with a zero which is placed between the 2/3/4 and the note. Do these indicate 2nd third forth positions? And if so, what does the zero represent? Thanks, Ray

I am away from home and my violin needs tuning. I have only done it myself a couple of times, first under the supervision and guidance of my teacher. Now I have tuned 3 of the strings, but the D string is way out of tune, and I don't know if I should tighten it or loosen it! I know that sounds like a dumb question, but I have this immense fear that I will snap the string. (All strings were new last December, but I only really started to play in February, so they aren't that old.) I loosened the fine tuner all the way, and now according to my electronic tuner it is at F. Help!

Say 'Hi' if you're in the UK!

So as not to hijack Glenn's thread any further, I'm starting this to continue the discussion we've been having there about organising a meet in the UK.

Drop by and say 'Hi' if you're interested....

This is great ! It's instant feedback instead of messing around wondering..."do I have that note right ?"

My problem will be finding a time when no one else is home...LOL ! I have to turn the drone up so loud in order to hear it well enough over my own playing....that I'll be dodging pitch forks as I'm run out of the house !

definitely have to find a solution to that though, because I think this will help me immensely with my intonation ! Thanks Beth for the tutorial !
