I shared a video once before during the Hedwig's theme party. I was doing some recording this week to help my practice, and wanted to share again. I know I still have a lot of work to do but feel like I'm moving in the right direction.

Hi Ron,
The Rieding Concerto is sounding good. Intonation is pretty good and will get better with practice.
Your bow hold looks very good as does your left hand and leaft arm movement.
Do you have the piano accompaniment files. They help me stay in tune when I use them. I've attached the midi files just in case.

Thanks Bob, I will make good use of those accompaniment files. I feel like I have most of the first movement down tolerably well at this point and I've just started learning the second. I do struggle with intonation at times, especially 4th finger, but it's slowly getting better.  This has been a fun piece to play so far, made me realize how enjoyable classical can be. Thanks again.
