    You’ve obviously been playing a lot longer than I have so there isn’t much I can give you in terms of tips, but I thought I’d just comment anyway to say that I enjoyed your video. Keep up the great work!

    Vivaldi is my favorite composer! You played this really well. I saw that your bow looks a little tight, you might want to loosen it just a bit. Really cool performance. 🙂

    Good job! The Four Seasons is really hard, especially making the notes crisp and clear.

    Hello! You play very nicely. I especially like your vibrato, it’s nice and even. Just a few things to improve upon and watch for: your right shoulder is raised, so try to relax that to avoid injury. I think that’s something a lot of us struggle with. Also, before you start a performance of piece try not to test your note in that manner. Trust yourself more. This piece is really coming along for you though! There are some out of time notes in some of those runs, but nothing that can’t be fixed by slowing it down just a hair and working it out. Keeping as many fingers down at once would help as well. That will probably help with the articulation on string crossings as well. I don’t know if you’ve ever played any Kreutzer etudes before, but no. 7 out of the 24 caprices would really help you to clean up the preparations for the string crossings. This is really good though! Nice start to a challenging piece. Vivaldi writes some amazing stuff. I hope you have fun, and I wish you luck!

    Great playing! I absolutely love works from Vilvaldi. Sometimes my friend Kalilinoe just can’t shut up about him and I see why now! Keep it up!

    Great! I’m a sucker for Vivaldi. Good job! You are ready for orchestra and I recommend trying to find a local orchestra if on is available.
