Hi Beth!

Quick question . . . where would I find the pdf and MP3 files that we used to have with the beginner lessons?

I've looked on the Resources page, but I didn't see them anywhere. I know I'm old and can't see small print very well anymore, but I do have my reading glasses on and still I can't seem to find them.    :-)

Hi Beth, in one of your videos you talk about the different types of bowing styles, any chance you can post some videos about how to do these bowing styles?

Beth, I made your bowing jig and was met with unexpected success. Not only did I stretch those outside arm and hand muscles but I was also able to concentrate on finger movements of the right hand. I also discovered that I was afflicted with the dreaded "death grip" syndrome which disappeared when using the bowing jig. I tweaked your jig-in that I cut the bowing tube down to 3 inches inorder to obtain mimic more of the full bow stroke. Thanks for the tip.

I just switched from the hard rectangular rosin to the round cake form. Perhaps it is my imagination but I'm sure the strings sound clear. Perhaps because the round rosin is a little softer and therefore it applies more evenly on the horsehair. In the end it does not matter I know what I'll be buying from now on.

I love the idea about the "drones" It may help me.....I have very little hearing left in my right ear and it's very hard for me to tune to another instrument or source because I don't hear the "source" very well, I just hear a lot of "me". Nobody wants to sit and "drone" for me long enough for me to "get" the note and I only have an "A" drone on my metronome. Usually I ask my worship leader to listen to my A for me and let me know where it's at, then I tune the rest. Anyway ! Looking forward to this Beth !! Another thing, I love the little theory blurbs I get from watching your videos. There was another vid you posted where you were explaining intervals and tuning. I always perk up when I hear theory blurbs ! :-)

Dear Beth, The video portion of "Simple Gifts" is blank. Only the audio is coming through. Also the sheet music is not visible. I love this piece so I am hopeful that it is a temporary problem that can be resolved easily. Thank you. Elizabeth

What fun is !!! I'm working on this technique as it's so much fun to do this and I love the effect ! Tremolo is also one of my favorites.... I recently posted a vid of Itzhak Perlman playing Bazzini's "Dance of the Goblins (I think that's what it was)... on my facebook page and in the vid Perlman is obviously enjoying himself as he plays this. The coolest part is when he's doing pizzicato as he's spiccatoing ! What an amazing instrument and I'm always fascinated to watch and listen to those who've mastered it sharing their skills with the rest of us. Thank you Beth for your inspiring and helpful vids ! I'll have to see what I can do with this !
