I’ve taken my stickers off my violin
…. And they won’t be going back on!

I did this back in January and I put them straight back on but now I think after playing a year they have to stay off! And they will. I only had a quick go earlier but i’m thinking the Sevcik exercises I do everyday are really going to help and I think sticking with Annie’s Song for now is the way to go. 

Anyway, thought I’d share my violin news !

Well done, leave them off, and use your ears  use the ringing notes as a guide, and when you play a bad note play it again immediately and correctly, makes it lodge in your brain.

Grats the sevick exercises will work wonders for your intonation.

Congrats Katie,
Do you feel that it's more difficult to play now? Can you tell a difference in your intonation?
I'm guessing that I know the answer to these questions but I'm anxious to know if I was right. 😁

Thanks Fiddlerman! Well I feel like I’m starting from scratch but I also feel like it’s more rewarding when I get notes in tune because it’s obviously harder than playing with my stickers. But I’m actually doing better than I thought. I was thinking how I was getting carried away with learning new things that I’d forgotten my stickers were on! So I think it’s a good time to take them off!! I think having them on at the start allowed time to concentrate on other things like bowing. I can see tgat my fingers have learned round about where to go though which is pretty cool! I’m concentrating on d major scale and Simple Gifts.

Nice to hear. Also great that you did it. Now the concentration that used to go towards seeing where your fingers were going down, could be diverted to your listening to intonation instead. 😁
Congrats!

Thanks for the encouragement! I think it’s going to be a very slow process!!! I’m trying to sing the notes back in tune.. so play a note in tune and carry it on with my voice !!
