I am learning my first piece to piano
I was just wondering what volume to violin ratio i should have the piano cd playing at??
I understand dynamics change on the violin but how do you find that perfect volume?
Sometimes i feel i put it louder so i can't hear my mistakes
Also how far and which direction should i be facing away from the speakers..?
Any tips would be much appreciated
Also i would like to thank Fiddlerman for sharpening my basic math skills...
I assume you are just trying to find a suitable level to "practice along to" as distinct from recording the final piano-plus-violin?
What I find handy (both for practice and, essential, for me with my setup if recording a solo against an existing music or click track - I don't use a pickup on the acoustic, rather I use a studio mic - just gotta remember not to cough, curse, or stamp my feet!!!) is to use headphones.
I play the backing or click track through the headset, with the left earpiece in / 'phone over the ear, but the right ear remaining uncovered. The 'phones I use have "reasonable" deadening to external "noise" ( i.e my playing, haha ) so my left ear doesn't get totally deafened by its proximity to the violin and can cleanly pick out the music/click track - while my right is catching more of the violin and my "IF" ( intonation failure) bits.... LOL
It's not perfect, but it helps for me, so I'm not "fighting" against room echoes, position/distance etc from the sound source - and the arrangement is reasonably "repeatable" and "controllable"
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
