Hey everyone,

Hope everybody had a great holiday and is enjoying their break.
Here is a link to a really interesting article about my violin teacher in New York, Joey Corpus.

Also, I have a sort of medical question; for the past few days my arm has really been hurting, when I run it through the position you hold it to bow. As you can imagine this makes it pretty painful to practice! It's kind of an achey feeling, surrounding my elbow/forearm. It hurts to practice, but also when I'm doing other things, but it's on-and-off. It's only in my right arm and I'm not sure it' sa violin-related injury, but has anybody ever experienced anything like this?

Run, do not walk, to your orthopedist. It sounds like it might be elbow tendinitis. If so, you need to treat it.

What JC says about learning to hear in the interview that goes "They may play a phrase a certain way without realizing it..." is an interesting thing to me. I wonder how that condition differs from the fixed condition internally, mentally and sensorially. Ask him and report the answer in your next blog :)
