"With Nicky", Nicola Benedetti's violin training/masterclass videos

Recommended Posts

Anybody else noticed these?  They began appearing on YouTube on Jan. 29th., and she's uploading one lesson a week.  Here's a typical example:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBL2oFPTRfo

From the several I've viewed so far, they seem to be nicely edited, well planned and performed, and about as pleasant to watch as an instructional video can be.  I feel that her treatment of the topics, manner, and delivery would be very reassuring to those stressed and nervous about their development as players.  Compared to many a video littering YouTube, IMHO, they're masterpieces.  :)

Thanks for bringing her to my attention as I find them interesting to watch. The one on vibrato she shows clips of 5 different players on the same few measure. I was taught not to hold the neck like James Ehnes does : )

she got me back to Schradieck

When she plays 64 to a bow, it seems to be around quarter note = 280,  just going by the second hand on my watch.  I'd pay good money to hear the whole thing like that.

Not only do I like the videos, I like her as a violinist.  While I cannot rank her on par with some of the past and even present greats, she is human and that is what makes her playing enjoyable.  She plays through mistakes like a champ and without even a flinch. Totally dig everything about her!

BTW-I love the video about what is in her violin case!
