Dear Violinists and Fiddlers ! ,

This is me Gabrielle here and as I keep exploring this website '' Fiddlerman.com '' I am beginning to realise many of my flaws and errors in my playing ....I am glad to correct them and throw light on my playing . There are quite a lot of songs I am familiar within it makes my interest and love for playing the violin multiply just to simply learn the songs I have cherished hearing time on and time on again . Recently I  am trying my hardest to master this particular song '' Drink to me only '' and so far I am doing quite well ( at least in my perspective but in honesty it might be quite influent  ) . I am always on the search for anyone who might have a few tips I could use to improve my playing and bring my playing to life . I feel that while I am playing this particular song ...it is missing the punch I am longing to give to it which will eventually in time prove massively impactful on my playing . For any beginner violinist who is looking for some inspiration , I highly recommend you search on YouTube " Karolina Protensko " . She too is a violinist who plays with great , overflowing passion and enthusiasm which can't be matched to and she is the reason I myself have gotten inspired to play the violin in the first place .....Karolina started playing the violin at only just age 6 !!!!!!! It is mind-blowing to think she started to playing the violin with honest love for this celestial instrument at a very young age . She apparently is 13 right now and is a professional violinist . She is from Ukraine , Kiev but has moved to America and performs on the streets of Saint-Monica almost every week-end , she also has other channels. such as '' Kalonia Protensko voice '' , '' Karolina protensko vlog '' etc . If anyone is discouraged and feeling disappointed then just listening to her music will encourage you and bring a smile upon your face . Karolina is my idol and I look upon her with admiration .


From Gabrielle , keep playing and do not stop everyone because you have chosen the path of God by doing so either you're playing the violin or the fiddle .violin-student
