Hi, now that I have been playing for a long time now i have been playing harder music that requires shifting & vibrato in other positions. I have been doing really well with all this stuff but the only thing I still have a tendency to do is to go back & refer to notes in 1st position. Is there any way I can stop doing that & if so how?

Hello Beth:

On Lessons 41 & 42 (Guided Practice: Skips)you have some great excercises, which as you mention are also good as warm-ups.

Is there a possibility that you might create the notation for these as PDFs? Not that they are difficult. But it would be nice to have them available in notation to be able to put into our notebooks, to help jog our memories.

I actually have a copy of Finale PrintMusic, and if I ever have some time on my hands, I may just do it myself and send them to you.

Best wishes,

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
