I listened to: Dr. Paula Bird, part 1: Awareness of Tone 1 with interest. Especially when, at the beginning of the tutorial when she describes what the violinist hears compared to the audience. I'm wondering if setting up a tape recorder (remember those) and after practicing rewind and press replay. What do you think?

I can't believe what fun I'm having learning something new! Even though I've just completed my first week of practicing (you just have to love newbies) each time I pick up my violin there is something else to explore. I have found that the violin has an immediate response on G,D, and A strings. Which means I've lucked out on making the base bar. The E string not so much. I'll have to research this-perhaps its nothing more than adjusting the sound post. Wish me luck.

Something tells me I might want to spend a buck and buy a stick rather than using my bow?

LOL....Beth, I have another one for you....it seems I'm from Texas and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it ! In the members list I've tried to list CT as my state but it keeps setting me right back to Texas. It's a grand state, I've been there a few times and I do have some relatives who live in the San Antonio area, but..... X-D I'm going to have to change my avatar to something else....getting sick of seeing my face staring back at me here....lol

Hi Beth ! When you and Colleen are discussing the "death grip" in this video, you mention how a lot of students have a tendency to grip and want to "push" the violin "UP" to counteract the pressure of the fingers on the fingerboard. I find that what I do instead is to grab and "pull DOWN" on the neck of my violin without realizing that's what I'm doing. I notice it when I take my left hand off the violin and the neck moves upward. Why do I do that....and....how do I make it STOP ?

Hi Beth, I checked out the "practice sheet for intermediate players". I practice for about and hour and a half mon-fri mornings and whenever I can during the weekends...almost every sunday for at least an hour or longer. How would you break up that time as far as techniques to practice each day....along with repertoire for the music I play on sundays ? Being as how one of my "resolutions" for this year is to improve on my practice skills, it would help to have a program to follow. The sheet you provide will help I'm sure. Thanks you ! :-)
