My teacher taped this video at my lesson last week. 14 month mark. The visual didn't turn out well and you can barely see me. That's OK. You can hear me fine though... not sure if that's OK or not! (Have your finger on the stop button -- just to be safe.) The video is dark because the camera was sitting in the closet ... because it's a new space and a camera set-up hasn't yet been devised.
It's a little hard to see and hear these videos for the first time. Somehow they sound worse than, yet they sound better than I imagined! Different aspects of the playing sound better and/or worse. But still very valuable to see and hear. This video motivates me strongly, especially to work on bowing.
I'm playing by myself this time around... egads, now you can really hear me... be forwarned: there are a couple of pretty sour notes, and I botched up the rhythm in one particular measure, twice. It's funny how, when the mind is pre-occupied with something else--like learning fingering and bowing, something like a simple rhythm falls by the wayside.
Not terribly musical... that'll come later... I'm not playing very fast as there are some sixteenth notes coming up in the piece and I want to be able to handle them when I get there... I feel I'm progressing...
