I don't believe there's a single Violinist, Violist, or Cellist

who doesn't want to improve their playing. 

So what REALLY helps, in a big way? 

"Fix your intonation in a week" - I'm a bit sceptical. 

 

 

 

We've talked about Sevcik - so the suggestions in Daniel Kurganov's video could be very helpful, but I'm struggling with the idea I'd have to really buckle down and commit to this for a full week (or in my case, probably much longer).  

Maybe it's time to get serious - anyone up for the challenge?

@Katie M - 

🤔 Pretty daunting, isn't it? 

My 1st impression was, "NO WAY!" 😳 

But, I think it might be worth a closer look.  I just need to wind down a bit after these Holidays, before I can even think of trying to tackle some of this.  ...it's going to require a lot of focus & concentration for me - which I don't really have right now, not even for vibrato. 😔

...having too much fun still playing Christmas music!

Hmmm yes. To be honest I know didley squat about double stops ! For me half the battle is working out what I’m actually supposed to be doing ! I’d like to get to the point of just playing the first couple of bars of something ok so at least I actually have something I can play !! 

I’m definitely going to keep at my Sevcik for now.

How’s the vibrato now?
