Saint-Saens Devoured My Rosin!! Ahhhhh!!! Help!!!!

January 23, 2008 at 4:17 AM

So, yeah, like, I need to buy some new rosin because everytime I practice the first part of the first movement to the Saint-Saens concerto, all my rosin disappears. I guess, I need stronger rosin. Any suggestions as to what rosin worked specifically really well for you when playing the Saint-Saens Concerto? I know, this could be in the discussion board, but I figured since rosin was recently discussed, but not in the same context as I am asking it in, I should just put it here in my blog.

Hahahaha... I've never played Saint-Saƫns, but the way you phrased the question is just funny.

It sounds like you may either need more rosin, or there may be a technique issue. Have you asked your teacher for theories about why you may be having this problem?

Thanks. I love titles. Its all in the title.

Mr. Holzman, my teacher said I need better rosin, she just did not suggest anything because...well, you wouldn't understand.
