First video! So I'm gonna start with something light. Lots of room for improvement but I hope you guys enjoy anyways!
The piece is called "You Raise Me Up"
Constructive criticism appreciated!
By the way, don't I just have the weirdest facial expressions when I play? LOL
Thanks guys for the input and Fiddlerman for his useful comments! I noticed my lack of dynamics as I found my video incredibly boring to listen to after the first 20 seconds haha. I also noticed my inaccurate notes but was hoping you guys wouldn't notice (I'm used to playing for an unmusical crowd) . My bowing were spontaneous decisions so I didn't really pay much attention to it. I will be sure to put much more attention to the things you mentioned next video. Thanks again!
WoooHoooHooHooW!!! That was GREAT!! Another professional on the forum!! he-he-he!! Hold on, m.k. now You will not be able to escape the questions /rubs her hands/...
I really enjoyed your playing!!! I hope i will be as good as you after 6-7 years =))) Thank you for the video!
Seeing your videos I'm pretty sure you'll be much better haha.
Dynamics are a bit more difficult when playing by yourself, without someone there directing and indicating crescendos, decrescendos, ppp, and forte- watch the directors in a live performance and who they look at (; Too, with a violin under your chin, projection from your perspective sounds differently than what the audience hears, but like Pierre said, recording yourself, and playing it back helps in that regard.
Your vibrato is fab! You do have an excellent ear (a wonderful thing to have!), and on the few, very few places where your intonation was off slightly seemed to be in shifting positions -I'm sure being recorded made you more self-conscious of the shifting, but that will improve to where you have a minimal recovery at best, nailing those notes practically spot on, the more you progress.
I haven't looked at your previous videos, but wowwee! m.k. you've got some awesome skills! Keep up the great work!
Wow, that was really good, I definately can't get that good as far as the vibrato, that vibrato was amazing, every once and a while I di hear a little scratching sound, I think that is mostly because used to much rosin, at least when I dont put as much rosin on it sounds a lot cleaner, so thats just my experience, and then the only other thing is you need a new camera, because when you hit the high notes, I got the impression that the metal inside the camera was echoing the vibrations wich cause a loud ringing sound, not a problem for old people. Minor minor things though. Overal I think you did a fantastic job, it will take me at least 2 more years to get close to that, and I have been playing since the fourth grade... which isnt much since Im in my Freshman year, but anyways, Very good job!
