Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
I’m getting pretty familiar with Romeo and Juliet now and I’m finding my eyes wandering from the music to my fingers. I do find it’s flowing a lot better . Just wondering if that is an ok habit to get into. I feel like it is helping me get my fingers in the right places because I’m looking at them.
I think that is one of those things that is a help to some people and. Ot so much for others.
I looked at my fingers on my cello a lot more before than I do now. I needed to before because I wanted to know where I was when it was right and how it felt. I suspect that for some people it would be hard to stop once you start, but for others, like me, it just kind of stops because I don’t need to look as often. I think the more you get comfortable with placement, the feel of proper placement and the correct sound, you will naturally just stop.
I would say that if it helps, do it. Remember, you are just beginning and you have really come along. some things are a right and wring, but, I am a firm believer, that everyone learns differently. This is one of those things. You will most likely, stop looking as you become more and kore comfortable.
Cello, Violin, and Viola Time!
Thank you Mouse. It’s weird because I only started to do it this eve I think it is because I’ve become more familiar with the notes. I think before I really had to concentrate on the music. Maybe it will help who knows.
By the way I was watching you Auld Lang Syne earlier- I thought it was great!! I really enjoyed watching. I ffound it really calming.
