Definitely the only time I’m ever going to be inside a Royal box at a venue like this. Amazing space, made even better by the fact the dancers were rehearsing for their evening performance. What a treat... . . . #palermo #sicily #italy #teatromassimo #ballet #opera #operahouse #art #music

Ніколи не думала, що опера так сильно буде мені подобатися. Та ще й так, щоб у своїх вподобаннях улюблених оперних співаків мати (ну тобто лише одного😉). А сьогодні ще й випала честь з ним познайомитися. Уявляєте? І як тепер заснути? 😅 #theatre #opera #operahouse #friends #lviv #happiness
Part 34. "The Fruit of Silence" book coming soon God willing. The flesh is weak!!!! Stay on point Boogs!!!! Boogs laughed a little thinking ok she’s trying to prove a point and it was definitely taken as such. She told they could get to know each other over dinner. Boogs said cool and they would meet at 9 o’clock at the South Street Diner. That was a local spot with good bar food and good music too. Boogs thought about for a second and wasn’t sure if this was a test from Checko and Pun or maybe she was lining him up to get robbed on her own. Then he snapped out of it and talked himself off the ledge. He took a shower and got dressed grabbed a stack of bills out of his dresser just in case they went somewhere else after that. He also grabbed his baby Glock 40. caliber for insurance, things got crazy at the bar sometimes and he rather be safe than sorry. It was almost time to meet up and he didn’t want to be late so he jumped in his car and headed to the bar. When he drive by the bar he looked in the through the front glass but he didn’t see her. As he circled the second time he saw her get out of a cab and she was actually prettier than he thought. Wow was all he could say, she was dressed in a  cranberry stylish jumpsuit with a pair of shoes that matched perfectly with her outfit. Her body was amazing and Boogs sat there wondering how good of a night this might be. Boogs parked  and waited for her to text him letting him know she was there. Soon after she entered the bar the text came through and Boogs walked over and went inside. There were two sides of this bar, one side was loud and with a bar and a juke box and the other side had tables and flat screens on the walls. He spotted her at a table on the quieter side and headed over to her. She spotted Boogs  approaching her and stood up to give greet him with hug. She smelled so good all he could think about was taking her home. She gave Boogs the once over and smiled. Boogs was Salvatore Farragamo from head to toe and smelling like good just like her. “How you doing tonight?” Boogs asked her she replied , “I’m doing fine and you?” “I’m doing better now that you showed up “

FOCUS — Lack of attention to detail is the path to mediocrity. On the flip side, my voice instructor who is one of the world's top pedagogues always says that if you can manage 80%, the rest will take care of itself. But how do you quantify 80% in music? It's still extremely subjective, but all I can say is to listen. Constantly. To professionals, to students… Social media is a wealth of both raw and staged musical footage. Use your resources, and build a solid frame of reference. In grade school, there was a one player in band who was younger than me. He was probably one of the most talented musicians we ever produced in my small town. But did we produce his skills? Was he born with it? Neither. He listened. Constantly. This was before YouTube became as big as it is now. He obtained a massive box of CD's and tapes and such and spent countless hours with them, if I remember correctly. I've spent around 3 1/2 months with this set of exercises on and off. It's been a journey. While I've focused on other things as well, these have been the real elephant in the room. They are brutal in their demands of sliding individual fingers up and down the string while mostly maintaining the frame of the hand. Accuracy is a beast, and I am still vehemently opposed to stickers. But there came a point where it simply started to click, and I would have never reached that point without FOCUS: long-term, exacting focus. It's crucial to have the right technical concepts as well, but it's also so easy to try to move on to something different and more “advanced” much sooner than you're truly ready. I feel these exercises have paved the way for me to more-accurately approach chromatics in material I work on moving forward.
SCALES — There is almost no instrument that scales are considered more vital for than a stringed instrument. And with the violin being the smallest stringed instrument, with therefore the intervals being closest together, that makes it all the more crucial. With a piano, at least the keys will always visually be in the same place and with set tuning. With the fretless nature of the violin, however, a player's abilities are often gauged by their ability to play scales. Scales are the roadmap of the location of each note on each string. In addition to multi-string scales, one-string scales are also crucial to learn the precise locations of notes on each individual string. In Carl Flesch's method, Flesch includes single-string scales FIRST. This fits my own approach to learning the violin, considering single-string playing and shifting prerequisite to string crossing. I have included a standard three-octave, all-strings scale as a fifth video. C Major is an excellent scale to start with, because it begins in second position which is not too high to start with but outside the typical first position “default.” Enjoy! I hope you find watching my beginner experiences valuable, as I start to tackle this crucial cornerstone of violin technique… . . . Videos from Ševčík's bowing method coming soon, a new study I have been just beginning…
After trying SEVERAL instruments within a pretty wide price range, this English violin from the 1700's blew the others completely out of the water. There was a major repair done on the back over a hundred years ago, a repair that devalued the sales price of the instrument. But the quality of sound remained and far-outshines other instruments in its price range. The whole instrument vibrates to a far greater degree, and where there were holes in the resonance of the others, this one has nothing but color. It was a very easy choice, though the price was steep on my budget. I can't wait to continue moving forward with a proper instrument! It's already worlds easier to play with accuracy and without tension. The shop was kind enough to let me borrow a bow. I decided within seconds of comparing my bow with the shop bows that the hair on mine was s*** by comparison, so I decided to have mine rehaired at quality. Will be picking that back up on Tuesday! Videos will be coming VERY soon.
In practicing and learning the violin, I find two things absolutely essential: a metronome and a keyboard. 1) Your fairly decent tonal memory is not perfect pitch. 2) Your tonal memory can shift without you realizing. 3) Learning music without assured tempo consistency encourages you to memorize bad habits and be overconfident with what you're good at. Be disciplined. Reject your pride. Check your pitch accuracy with a keyboard, and learn your pieces predictably with a metronome! It can be a dealbreaker!
This is probably my favorite exercise from this set! The G string is an extremely important string for a soloist, and my instrument in general tends to lack in power on the G string. When I buy new strings, I plan to get the Larsen Il Cannone strings. The A and D will be Medium, but the G and E will both be Soloist grade. Soloist is brighter and more powerful! This exercise has really allowed me to spend a great deal of care improving my ear to tuning on the lowest string and develop the hand coordination necessary to reach around that far. I look forward to more exercises that continue this process!
I promise I haven't forgotten everyone! I know the point of sharing practice videos is to share your development, but there is still a certain personal standard I think we all possess in what shouldn't quite yet see the light of day! What these exercises begin to allow me as a student to start hacking away at is what I'm finding to be the genesis of playing the violin. The first finger accompanied by the thumb is where every position starts, and first, third, and fifth are the major positions on the violin. Everything else starts to fill in the gaps from here. Precision in position location is crucial in tuning. Technical areas such as knuckle position, rotating the hand around the fingerboard to the lower strings, sliding silently but accurately up the string, and accurately judging where a position begins when going to that position cold (without a slide) are all keys to the many locks on the door of precise tuning on the violin. By adding fingers more slowly than in other methods, I am at much more liberty to focus daily on these keys that will make learning the violin a joy and not a frustration. It is indeed often frustrating even in my limited focus to get tuning exactly right, but it is universes easier than if I were dealing with the fine coordinations of using more fingers than I am ready for in my playing. I may possibly make one more video very (hopefully) soon from this exercise series I've been working diligently on, but I will mostly be working toward adding a second set of exercises covering these three major positions with the first finger very soon. I am hoping for just one more set of exercises on this before adding the second finger!
Well, after about 2 weeks studying these exercises, I'm finally ready to move forward to first finger, fifth position. Developing these exercises has seen installing my new Whittner, center-mounted chin rest and later my new Dov-Music, harp-style tailpiece! I am loving both! I used my condenser mic for this, and it got a much better, acoustical sound. It also saw me get on an OCD spell with my bow hair. I was getting a lot of benign squeaks, and my bow wasn't responding as immediately as it should have been. I had noticed some bow hairs would slacken faster than others, and others would slacked way-more-slowly. About 15 clipped hairs later, I had a clear tone. No one tells you to clip bad hairs that haven't broken yet… Anyway… My approach in not learning the entire first position first is paying huge dividends. I am excited about the progress of my bowing, progress in my tuning accuracy, progress in changing strings with the first finger on the string being changed from without chirps, progress in thumb posture, and progress in sliding without gripping or leaving the thumb behind. Onwards to the breach!!!!
🎶 Can you spot the one clear mistake I make in these two videos? The past week or so has involved really working on fine-tuning pitch on my second set of first and third position first finger exercises. These exercise introduce note separation (re-articulation) on the same bow, which is trickier than it seems on top of everything! I've also been working on where on the bow is best to start, so I don't have to change bow direction before the end of a note… It interests me how some learners use clips on the bow to divide its length. Will be writing some new exercises to add fifth position, soon… I know these two exercises don't even use third position, but they are two of the most-technical exercises in the set, the first video using the oft-neglected (at least in my case) first string. I really do love my Pirastro Wondertone Gold strings, not ever even getting benign squeaks and scratches out of my E string.
Days 2 and 3 (today) of learning the violin have greatly involved practicing finger dexterity in the bow hand. Bend movements of the fingers are crucial to learning to bow smoothly and smoothly change direction. These movements also require me as a beginner to more and more refrain from locking/straightening my thumb, letting my fingers slip too high, and locking my pinky. As for the third video, vibrato is also extremely difficult to develop, taking usually several months, and I've from day 0 been working to slowly develop the fingertip motion at the heart of vibrato on the violin. Practicing it every day will mean mastering vibrato sooner rather than way later…
