As I commented on your YouTube page, "Very impressive! Rythm, tone, articulation, and intonation are all spot on!!!"

The visual effects were very ethereal too! Nicely done. 

The old curmudgeon!

@JohnG thank you!!

My teacher hasn't heard it yet, he gave me this piece to work on and I have to play it on Saturday, and I imagine he will have lots of comments to do better 😅

BRAVO! What can I say. I am tired now. I have heard that before a long time ago, somewhere, by a professional, before I took up violin. You played it as good an any pro. Bravo. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Standing ovation.

Thank you so much,

🐭

@maudmaud -

Very Nice! 

I think this piece also helps you build some skills perfect for playing Irish, Scottish and Scandinavian folk tunes! 

Congratulations on making it 3 years! 🤗  I just made 3 years in June. 

Wonderful playing, thank you for sharing this!

Thank you all for your kind messages!!

 

I'll tell you what the teacher said 😅 I just hope he won't bother me with my wrist saying it's not flexible enough...

@maudmaud that's really well played ! intonation rhythm and overall control… you don't even have scratchy notes. Your teacher may have tips to make it still better, but he/she has to be impressed.

Thanks 🙂 @wtw

so, my teacher told me that I had made good progress on this piece, but as I expected, he wants me to use the flexibility of my wrist more than to mobilize the forearm, which at the final allows me to feel less tired.. . it's not easy (just move your wrist...) and I also have to work more on the last 3 lines of the piece (a little more difficult part).

I have to work on it again😛

@maudmaud Congrats on 3 years playing!  Excellent, solid playing! Sounds like you have a good teacher, too--smile

That's rather a good thing, that you're able to anticipate your teacher's comments :--). In some way, you're 'being your own teacher' (I know a violin teacher who used to say that the teacher's role was to bring the student to being his own teacher).

I'm sure you'll manage with your wrist, that's only a matter of time (and practice of course).

@maudmaud you asked "...better?"  I think I liked the 1st video a bit more for the lighting and how the audio sounded more open or clear.  Theres nothing wrong with latest though, I just favor the 1st one more.

@ABitRusty : my phone was not placed in the same place it surely plays on the sound quality 🧐🤔🤷‍♀️and otherwise the objective was to move only my wrist, and not to use the forearm for the movement of the bow... I'll see on Saturday if it suits the teacher 🤞🤞

Your wrist was much more involved and flexible in the second video.

@maudmaud -

The last video is much better with the wrist.

I'm noticing you've pretty much locked your elbow, but maybe still compensating a little with the shoulder.  If your instructor wants wrist/hand/fingers, I don't think you should be involving the shoulder, except for when you change from high strings to low strings.

I'm wondering if he isn't asking you to bow more like in this video?

...I've started the video at 04:37 for demo. 

 

 

The idea of using the hair band to help draw your attention to moving only the wrist - might be helpful. 😊
