Great lesson, Pierre. I think maybe one of your best ever!

I listen for phrasing much more than the acrobatics that often dominate a violin piece but it took me a long time to overcome my worship of the technical. Still requires concentration.
Phrasing is barely possible if I am stumbling over the printed notes.
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
I loved this lesson! Not as easy as it looks thought when trying to play with the right intonation already takes a lot of concentration (and bowing straight etc), but really something to start practicing when you know a piece well! Thanks Pierre!

Pierre this is a great lesson. Made sense and you are just the guy to explain phrasing ... you are an expressive guy (all part of your charm and talent).
Working on a piece with no words.....so the phrasing is a bit of a struggle for me right now, but I do see how it is going to make a huge difference when I get the hang of it.
Thanks again for another great lesson.

Very helpfull lesson FM! I like your editing near the end I have played only one instrument that almost completely ignores phrasing...........the highland bagpipes. Except for fingering embelishments......its all or nothing. I like the wide variety of sound possible with the violin. Thanks.

So cool. I think I am but know I am not, certainly it doesnt come across very much. Im definately working on it. Some of the things you say sound like me,,,or is it that I sound like you? probably. ha ha, comes from spending so much time here watching vids. Keep em coming!

Very good video, Pierre
That's a twighlight zone!
That's what my teacher always tells me.!.
As for me, dynamic is much harder than even to have an acceptable intonation!
But i'm trying-trying-and trying For now i'm definitely not expressive (or wrong-expressive) LOL, hopefully it'll get better =). I understand all of it and try to tell the story.... but it doesn't come out the way i hear it
My teacher says - it's like painting. For now i'm volume-blind Is there such thing? Is it fixable? My teacher suspects that i have no soul and my brain is square formed LOL!
Thank You kindly, FiddlerMan!!!! =)
