  1. Yep, there are exercises that deal with left hand pizzicato towards the back of the Sevcik book.
  2. I have two questions. How do you know when you should play left hand pizzicato with the bow at the same time? Also in Sevcik's exercise book, is the left hand pizzicato just with the left hand or with the bow too? Thanks.
  3. How should one practice simultaneous trills so they become easier in pieces? Any points to keep in mind when practicing these trills?
  4. Thanks guys for the advice. I never thought of the first mvt of Beethoven's Violin Concerto in that way before.
  5. Thanks guys for clearing this idea up and to let me know about how to achieve this.
  6. One time when I was practicing for auditions when staying overnight at a hotel, I practiced violin with a mute for a few hours. Doing so seemed to mellow out my violin and bring out more overtones.
  7. I've heard that to get 100% out of a performance, a person should prepare for 150% when practicing. How should one practice to get at this level?
  8. I feel like there is a lot of stuff to practice and I know I shouldn't but sometimes I skip practicing scales. How much time should be spent on scales since there are scales, arpeggios, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, octaves, tenths, trills, etc?
  9. When I play, sometimes I noticed that the bow moves around. Besides looking in the mirror and having a straight bow, what can I do about this problem? I looked at the other posts regarding this same topic but I'm not having any luck fixing this problem. Thanks.
  10. Hi, Does anybody know where I can get online sheet music from for a cheap or free price? I want to get Wieniawski's (sp?) Polonaise in D Major. Thanks.
  11. For the Brahm's Violin Concerto, 3rd movement, does anyone have any suggestions as to what etude to practice so at the beginning of the piece, the second and fourth fingers go down together?
  12. Thank you guys so much for the info. I really appreciate it.
  13. Hi, What is the going rate per person in a string quartet at a wedding in Chicago? Thanks.
