    I played another piece. This one is Bourree by Bach from Suzuki book 3. Please watch and comment! Thanks!

    Hello Yinmui, your tone has definitely improved compared to your first post!! Great job! And a great piece too!
    If I may give you one tip, try to relax the fingers of your right hand. Definitely try to keep the pinky finger curved. A relaxed right hand will give you an even better tone.
    Something that helps me to relax while I play is smiling. When you smile, your whole body relaxes. 😉 For example, look at David Garrett in this video. He smiles almost all the time and his arms, his neck, his entire body is so relaxed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-2tbvRsCUA

    Thanks, Mariko. I can’t help but grimace, haha. I do try to work on my facial expression too, but with my full body trying to control my playing, it’s hard right now. It’s something on my list to work on and correct.

    Yeah, I do find it hard too to relax and smile, but the moments that I manage to do it, I can hear that it really helps to have a better tone. 🙂 Good luck and keep enjoying!! I’m curious what your next post will be 😉

    Right now I am working on Seitz’s Concerto No. 5 in D major, 1st movement. That’s probably gonna take awhile, as I am very busy next few weeks.

    Hi Yinmui, it’s been quite some time we didn’t hear from you on the forum. How are you? What pieces are you working on now? Wishing you a very nice day and good luck with your violin practicing today 🙂

    Thanks Margaretellen! Hi Mariko! I have been busy, and I have been such an internet addict that I thought I should take some time off from the internet! Right now I am not working on any pieces, I am planning on spending the next few months practicing nothing but scales. I actually heard about this from a virtuoso, his teacher asked him to practice nothing but scales, for 6 months. I don’t know if I want to do 6 months, but we’ll see!
