I thought I would post a vid of some progress I've been making on that duet piece I've been working on. It's coming along nicely I think, with a need to polish the more difficult sections...that beginning measure...the 5, 6 runs, areas like measures 72-80....and timing...always timing. One thing I really lack is finesse. I work so hard on the technical aspect of playing that I haven't explored the mental/psychological part which brings in the emotion and "feeling" in what your playing. Not to mention loosing the "ugly face of concentration" ! Lol....I cringe when I see that in these vids and have been working on relaxing the face. Anyway, I just thought you might be interested in seeing how things are progressing with this. I'm open to any suggestions/critique you may have to offer as well. Thanks Beth !

dear Beth. would there be any value in dipping into susuki even though I started a year ago. I am not bothered about the cost of the books if i knew they would help me. [also which ones]. I am a bit clueless about it. My main book has been Violin for Dummies which is good. regards Mike

G'day Beth! :-)

I believe that I am not playing Allegro (Suzuki Book I) correctly and I could use your help. The piece uses Staccato and Legato bow strokes. While I believe that I got the Legato bowing correctly, I think I am not doing the Staccato bowing quite right. Could you please give me some tips and/or exercises so that I can learn to do theStaccato bowing correctly? Many thanks!

Hi Beth, question......Wohlfhart book #2 page 24..... At the second measure into the 4th are those dotted notes and shifts. I keep creeping up the fingerboard playing the dotted notes and shifting until I just about run out of bow and the notes I'm playing get weak and ineffective. How should this be played so that I don't keep creeping up the fingerboard ? I try to give a good long pull at the dotted notes, but can't seem to give it enough. Thanks so much !

So much to work on ....soooo much to learn ! Where does one focus ? I feel like I'm trying to work on so much all at once that I'm not really getting anywhere with any of it ! Frustration mounts....I want to be so much better than I am.....I really would like personal lessons from someone like you Beth on a weekly basis...but the pocketbook doesn't allow. Thank you for your competent teaching and your graciousness and for making this help available at such a reasonable cost so that folks like me can have a chance at this. :-)

Could you please fill in the blank in the following question? Andres, assuming that you are proficient in all previous lessons, by the time you reach Lesson #____ you should be playing without fingerboard tapes. I would like to set a goal for removing the tapes. I do understand that it is probably not that easy. Thanks, Andy
