Hi Beth, I've intigrated the whole bow exercises into my daily practice. Along with finger tapping, retakes, hooked, and string crossing. Now I've begun to intigrate finger motion. I'm hoping to be on scales by June once I've also intigrated detache, legato, marcato, martele, staccato, and spiccato. On your video: Finger Motion at the Frog you mention tilting the bow so that just a few of bow hairs are touching. And on Dr. Stephen Redfield, part 6: Finger Motion you comment when Dr. Redfield also tilts his bow. Do we usuall want to use only a few bow hairs during a whole bow stroke or only if you want to achieve a softer sound as in the example in Finger Motion at the Frog (near the beginning of the video).

I finally did it!

Got my practice done this morning, then I took my violin to the Doctor. lol
I'm getting new strings put on along with a violin check-up with EKG and all. :-)

The Luthier will also put parchment on the bridge where the E-string is trying to burrow through like a rabbit. I won't have it back for a full day (to give time for the glue to set), but I should be good to go tomorrow evening. Just in time for practice time. I don't know that I will play any better, but I do hope that the sound will be definitely improved :^p

New Year's Resolution

Here are my resolutions again: Better awareness during practice. Faster vibrato. Primary awareness on bowing, not left hand.

I am uploading two videos, one with "Sad Violin", the other with a piece in the style of Vivaldi by Amy Barlowe (Diane recommended her book a while ago.

Any feedback is highly welcome, particularly on aspects that need improving. Thank you for listening.

Hi Beth, How did it work out with Willie Nelson? Did you try any new techniques? Was there a nice flow?

Hi Beth. I'm really enjoying the site remake. It's great! I have a question and then a quick comment about the site. I'm a 41 and have been working with my excellent teacher Lana a couple of times a week for about 1.5 years. We're making great progress but I have one key item that continues to prove troublesome that I feel really holds me back. I consistently am not getting enough wrist flexibility / envolvement in my bowing arm. As a result I can still have a pretty significant arc motion sometimes. It of course is worse when the left hand is busy & taking my focus away from the bow and also when reading as opposed to playing from memory. Lana has given me some suggestions which I do use (mirror, exercise with memorized pieces, etc). I absolutely 'get it' in concept with regards to the required wrist motion but I'm seriously having problems executing & certainly comitting it to muscle memory. I was wondering if you have any tips or specific exercises to help. I feel like we're on the verge of making another breakthrough if I could just get this under control. Now my comment about the site. Looks fantastic & lots of great content. We REALLY need a 'search' feature. I wanted to search for wrist in the community section & didn't see a way to do it. Surely it's a feature available on the platform that your site's hosted on?? Thanks again! -Bill

General information request: when I post on the Community page I cannot get the paragraph to separate lines. Instead of separate thoughts, all of my responses are displayed as one long paragraph. I'm sure it's my computer but not sure how to correct this.

Hello Beth - This weekend, while in Nashville, I mentioned the Violin Lab and taking fiddle lessons and was corrected by some of the folks. They said the Violin Lab is for teaching classical violin and not fiddling. Iím okay with whatever youíre teaching because I have started at the beginner level learned a lot (I have a lot to learn) but my question is: have you ever made a syllabus for your program that could be used for fiddling or are there lessons that I should skip since I will only be playing fiddle tunes as opposed to classical? Thanks, Papa Bear
