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 ! :-)

Balance Boards and Balls! I made reference to balance boards last week and I wanted to follow up. According to my family - I THREW OUT our balance boards. WHAT WAS I THINKING? Here I am ready to make y'all a video on how to use them. OK - so here goes a text version. Using a balance board or sitting on an exercise ball do similar things. Your body naturally aligns when you're putting it into a situation where you have to balance. Balancing is all about being relaxed and letting your body make the mini micro adjustments naturally. It's not about holding yourself or muscle-ing your way through a posture. Enter - violin playing. Folks get so mentally engaged in the act of playing the violin it's easy to forget you've got an entire body down below your neck and arms! If you practice standing on a balance board or sitting on an exercise ball (safer) you can remain mentally engaged in the act of violin playing while the rest of your body goes to instinctual relaxed balancing mode. Here's my recommendation: Using an exercise ball (approx. 36" diameter) put your feet at a 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock position and sit on the ball. Keep your feet flat the entire time for stability. Practice sitting on the ball, then stand up, then back to the ball and up again. Notice how it feels and make your comparisons. Most of all.... HAVE A BALL!!!

I am trying to get the forth movement (Allegro) of the Bach Sonata No 3 in E major vor violin and harpsichord ready for an ABRSM performance assessment on November 27th. I am including two versions, one with play-along accompaniment which is a bit fast and another solo in the tempo I like for this piece. Any comments and suggestions are highly welcome. Thank you for listening!

Beth, I'm wondering.....would it be possible for us to do something together in harmony ? What I was thinking was, if you picked something like...say...Ashokan, or something equally beautiful and melodic and posted harmony parts for us....would it work if you posted a vid of you playing a part and we could all work on the harmonies playing to your vid so we're all in sinc...(this is getting long...) anyway, I was wondering if it would be possible to put it all together in an audio and post the results ? I was just thinking that it would be a fun and interesting learning experience but I don't know anything about the tech aspect...if it's even possible. Just a thought I had. <:-)

I got some sheet music for a Christmas orchestra I will be playing in. One of the songs is "The Little Drummer Boy". It's arranged and orchestrated by Lari Goss (Part: Violin - Simplified Version). I want to know how you would go about sight reading this and learning to play it. Where would I start? Do you have any suggestions? Also, what should I do when there are no finger # markings? I know there are times where I will need to shift, but it doesn't have the markings. Lastly, I have a question about a symbol I found on the music. There is a lower note followed by a symbol that looks like this "~~~~~~ ". It goes up to a higher note. Can you please let me know what that means? Thanks in advance!
