Technical Question
I was wondering how people managed to coordinate starting the music and then playing to record a video. Do people have two laptops, one recording and the other with the music on or do people split screen the video and music. Just curious as I start to make an effort to put myself out there and expose how bad a player I am. I seem to not have enough time to start the music and get situated as it were to start playing in enough time.

Hello Violin Lab,

It's been a long time since I've posted a video.  I'm still practicing, still meeting with my new teacher about 3 times per month, and still stalking Violin Lab.  December 1 will mark my 3 year anniversary of playing the violin.  It's been a very slow process for me, but I'm slowly making progress.  We took a little break from the Suzuki material.  I was in book 4, but my teacher realized it was time to start introducing some additional training.  Here's a piece that I just started playing last night.  America the Beautiful.  
Any feedback is welcome.
Thank you

Beth I just wanted to say thanks for the Seitz video - I'm back! But that spiccato stroke at mid bow you do is challenging! But I didn't realize how much I depend on VLab for everything, it is such a supportive environment for violin learning.

And, you have the patience of a saint!

My apologies... it has been for ever since I've been back here to the place that was most inspirational and helpful in my early violin days.
In the early years of my participation with Beth and VL, there were some videos or links posted with exercises for improving finger independence.  I found the invaluable and practiced them for several years pretty religiously.  I still practice "refresher" exercises almost every week.
Unfortunately, my memory for such things has never been good and with age has gotten worse... if any of you can point me to the videos for those finger independence exercises I would appreciate it.
Miss you all!

Prokofiev Sym #1 fast passages
Hi!
Has anyone played this piece? Am I on the right track to block a passage in succession? Are there other tools out there I haven't come across? It's only been a few days for me here, and I am bouncing off the walls with all the resources. Help me reel it in and focus on a goal!

Oskar Rieding Violin Concerto #2 op. 35 1st movement
Hello Beth and everyone,

This is my first post so I'll start with a little introduction.  I've been wanting to improve on the violin after playing it on and off over the years, and so I started practicing more regularly from the beginning of this year.  One of the pieces which I practiced before and am learning again now is Oskar Rieding's Violin Concerto #2 op.35 1st movement.  Here's my video.  Looking forward to your feedback.

Moffat Abenlied issue in lessons
In case it hasn't been pointed out yet, while the piano & violin Soundslice version of Abenlied is linked correctly, the piano-only version is a dead link.  Since there's no downloadable piano-only audio track of this either, it's a problem for those working on the piece.

Amazing string musicians. Check out the flexibility of the bow hand /wrist at about 4 minutes into the video. #goals 🎻
