I used this to start a party but been practicing on my timing and I have a confession to make .. I wasn’t paying any attention to things like ‘P’ and ‘mf’ in fact I’ve written all over my music ! Not with notes but just with numbers!
Anyway I think my left hand is coming in I need to make sure I’m not doing that but I think timing wise is better and I’m trying to distribute the bow !
Sorry about the interruption ( I had some post) and also I went wrong !!
Thanks for watching
Nice, smooth playing. Your bow looks really good—and your timing is really good, too—your practice is working well.
It isn’t unusual to ignore the p & mf (dynamics) when you first start working on a piece. I often do. Once I've practiced the piece a bit, then I'll work in the dynamics.
And I write all over my music. Sometimes, when I first start practicing a piece, I make a separate copy of the music to write on, because I may write a lot at first, but may not need all those annotations (& they become more distracting) once I get the piece under my fingers.
Lots of things going on when we play violin—can only focus on so many things (sometimes just one!) at a time. Interruption? You didn’t even break stride! (Not until near the end, when you were thinking about it, anyway).
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
excellent Katie, love the way you so obviously enjoy playing, sharon said it all really.
My missus constantly walks in when I try to record something, usually just as I have got it correct lol.
I think the straight bow you have developed is going to make you into a really, really good player. I always find it difficult to keep a straight bow and have to concentrate constantly on it.
Well done .
Thank you Stringy Mouse and Sharon. Dan said he was dropping off fan Mail ha ha!!
That’s a great idea to make a copy of the music Sharon. I’m going to do that. I think I need to address both wrists as my bow wrist isn’t leading. Also I need to keep practicing the straight bowing ! There is so much to think about !
My mum is coming tomorrow we are going to try and get me to play with a backing track hmmm not sure that is something I’ll be able to do. My brain just goes to pot. I’m just lost as soon as the music starts.
I do love playing String and I’m looking forward to having a go with the dynamics!!
Thanks Mark and Emily !
I actually played with a backing track by my teacher on the piano (if that’s makes sense) today. My mum was conducting me !! So much concentration. Something I’d never done and I can’t really tell when I’m out of time and when I’m in time. But I think I understand when I’m supposed to start playing . It really is hard ! We then went for a walk !!
