    I’d like to practice regularly. Kids, work, life in general has taken over. My focus unfortunately is not with my violin, but maybe this is a start. I can read music, but this I play by ear.

    Awesome job playing by ear! Your intonation is near perfect and I can really tell that you have something to say with this piece. I love your emotion. I think the next step you can take in your playing is more dynamics. Sometimes exaggerating the dynamics creates an amazing effect. If you’d like, I would love to help you with your playing. you can find me here:

    Hey Mona, I also thought you had some very good emotion to your playing. One tip I would suggest is for you is to bend your wrist more are you are coming up bow. I’m sure Suni could help you with that!

    Wonderful tone! One of my favorite songs. For someone who has work, kids, and other responsibilities, I can completely understand not having time to practice. But from what I can hear, you owe it to yourself to carve out time for this.

    Thank you. It is nice and encouraging to hear the feedback. Suni, I would love lessons. I’m pretty overwhelmed with a lot of things going on right now. If I can get my focus where it needs to be, I will certainly contact you for more details. For now, I am seeing if I can stick to the practice routine challenge. Michael, thanks for your input. I am adding the quarter drill to my routine.

    I love the sound! This was my favorite piece to learn in middle school.
