  1. During my last eye exam I requested a single vision prescription for the distance to my music stand (~30" in my case). I sent this prescription to Zenni.com and bought a dedicated pair of glasses that I use only for playing. The modified prescription cost me nothing extra since the focal length is calculated based on the normal (bifocal in my case) prescription.
  2. Why, whenever I try to do a search from the home page search box do I get. 500 - Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed. I'm using the latest Chrome browser under an up to date Windows 10.
  3. Maybe I'm too old and romantic
  4. Bill, thank you for the link. While in Berlin in the 70's I used to listen to a lot of the Soviet Union broadcasts (from DDR radio) and was awed by the virtuosity displayes. There were many fantastic recordings sold by the Soviet record company Kultur at that time, with doesn't appear to be in existence any longer (there is a Kultur radio that' s on the web, but that's not it). Thanks again. My goosebumps are just beginning to subside

    I will learn

    Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you'll get hooked by the magic of violin. No frets to get in the way
  6. : Has anyone used the Practise Assistant Program found at Yes, I've had the Practice Assistant and the Performance Assistant for quite while and still use them. They don't come with the printed music, so you'll have to get that. I use the Mazas and Wohlfart. It's nice having something or somebody to watch your tempo and intonation, and that's where this software excels. Good luck Bob
  7. This product has "Practice Assistant" and "Performance Assistant" which run on a PC with sound card. Check out their Web page. I use both of the above products an really like it (I live out in the country too). I have no relation with this company except as a user of their product. Virtual Virtuoso
