  1. Hi. Currently my university assigned me a teacher who is from the Russian School. They advised my 1) wrist should never bend inwards even at the tip of the bow and 2) upper arm is always on the lower level as the bow. I have huge respect for this teacher because they play very powerfully and I've always admired Russian music, but from what I've learnt I've always 1) bent my wrist inwards when bowing towards the tip of the bow and 2) keep my upper arm always on the same string level as the bow. I believe having an open mind to try new things is the key to learning as much as possible, but I really want to stay the same; yet, I don't want to show unwillingness of learning or maybe that's the reason why I can't make a big beautiful sound? Please give me some advice. Thank you. Below is the Straight Bow Geometry that I've been following for years.
  2. Update! The first one is from Caprice No.1 from 36 Caprices for Violin, Op.3 by Federigo Fiorillo! The second one is from Study No.26 from 42 Studies by Rodolphe Kreutzer! Finally found them!
  3. @GoPractice Yes! Yes! Yes! Theoretical analysis suits me for memorizing Bach! Thank you for outlining the Corrente.
  4. Thanks all. I'll try your suggestions TMR! I feel full of power now!
  5. @violinnewb Thanks! I'll try listening while reading the sheet and humming it.
  6. Hi! I'm learning the Corrente from Violin Partita No.2, BWV 1004 by Johann Sebastian Bach. It's like a maze to me! I find it difficult to memorize; how do you guys do it? Thank you
  7. Hi. I'm trying to make a progressive repertoire building plan. I see from this list of Violin Solos, there is the Variations on "God Save the Queen" by Henryk Wieniawski. And it does not refer to the Variations on ''God Save the King'', Op.9 by Niccolò Paganini, as it is also included in the list. Of course, I'm still working on the fundamental Johann Sebastian Bach, but I hope to make sure even the information on the hardest solo pieces are clear. Thank you
  8. Hi. I use flat bow hair as default. My teacher wants me to tilt the bow for a certain movement. Yet, awkwardly I am struggling [analyzing every decision, as usual] on whether tilting the bow by: 1) rolling the bow with fingers 2) by bending the wrist [keeping the same bow grip] Which way is smarter? Why? Thank you
