Hi folks hope all is well with you all. Here I am sharing part of the sad romance. I chose that piece to work on finger flexibility. 

Juan.

@JuanFiddler that was really beautiful. What was the name of that piece? Thank you for sharing.

@Bob I believe that is "Sad Romance by Ji Pyeong Kwon". The opening of that song is my favorite.

 

Very well played @JuanFiddler

@bob thank you so much for listening and commenting.

@ryonass thank you very much for your comment.

@Fiddlerman thank you so much bro. I have put in some time exclusively to work on my right hand technique. My dream is yo take the admission test to get into the University. My problem is that I never learned to read music. What can I do?

You can start with basic beginner violin books which include notes. It will be easier for you since you can play already. 🙂
Then buy some easy solo books and start reading slowly. You can write numbers over the notes to begin with until your brain starts working on its own.

You play beautifully! I can’t imagine anyone getting that good with a complicated piece that can’t read music! You must have a tremendous ability to repeat what you hear without sheet music! That in itself is quite a talent! Fiddlerman has very good advise though I fear you will find the beginner pieces very simplistic! But yes, the best way to learn notes is from the beginning!

oh Juan, you play lovely! -

I'm just learning how to read music at the same time as learning the violin, and I believe the music note reading was a little easier than playing - it didn't take too long even tho I'm old and don't always get things the first time, I have faith that you will do it and follow your dream, good luck

Juan:

Very nice job.   I love it and your playing.  I am a fan.  Good luck... there is a bit of a bump to learning to read music...but then you will sail on your way. 

Great job... talk soon.

Cheers Toni
