Hi professorV, I play Violin and I’d like to play Caprice 24, Paganini ! I
don’t know what is the name of the bow “technique” to play the first
variation ! If you can help me, it would be very coool 🙂 (Sorry for my bad
english, I’m french and young soo..) Thanks !
Hi there, my teacher said I’m not allowed to move my arm AT ALL while
bouncing my bow. She said the only pressure I’m allowed to use with the
bounce is from my fingers only squeezing back and forth while bouncing.
It’s driving me crazy because I feel like I’ve got no control over it. What
do you think of this opinion? She said to practice it with my bow arm
wedged up against the wall so it doesn’t move..
Thank you, that was very helpful. My teacher tried to explain spiccato to
me, calling it more of a brushing motion, but I was having a hard time
controlling the bouncing. Your video helped me get it under control, and I
think I’ll have it nailed by my next lesson. Thank you.
Thank you very much for your videos, especially this one helped me a lot.
In my country all the teachers say you must learn Sevcik first, then you
are allowed to continue. Nobody’s willing to teach you anything if you
haven’t passed through Sevcik. As I consider Sevcik too methodical and
prosaic, I prefer other ways to learn. Thank you! 🙂 Tereza, Prague
@professorV i thought fast spicatto is not necessarily sautille… Like, i
have to do spicatto with semiquavers at the speed of 100… and my teacher
definitely told me its spicatto, not sautille. (which is also why i can’t
do it, and have since been watching youtube videos that all either teach
slow spicatto or sautille)
Hi, im currently learning from the suzuki book 1 and my teacher tells me to
do staccato with the bouncing of the bow, im not sure if it’s right or not?
I dont want to challenge his teaching but can you help???
Thanks, Professor V! My teacher had recommended this video to me and lo and
behold: I realized I had all ready watched some of your Wohlfahrt videos.
You’re doing great work, sir. We aspiring fiddler/violinist certainly
