Video Yourself and…

April 8, 2008 at 4:26 PM

Recordings put a more obvious glare on faults in the tone and intonation. When the tone goes, so will the intonation, as it is possible to have the finger placed on the precise location for the note and the use of the bow distorts the pitch.

In doing a video, it allows an additional learning experience.

1. Watch it without the sound and study your movements.
2. Listen without watching and try to hear where the problem actually began (perhaps a string crossing or the bow went ahead or behind, etc.).
3. THEN you must listen and find 3 spots you really liked — THOSE are what you duplicate more and more.

It is just filtering out the bad and developing the good!


Hope this helps —
Drew

Good idea, watching without listening.
I bet you could learn a lot.
