Your Favorite Songs For Practice Purposes

July 8, 2008 at 7:27 PM

Stimulated by Laurie's blog on American composers, I want to remind readers and violinists of the great wealth of songwriters from within our shores. These popular wonderful songs can sound terrific on the violin.... I suggest as part of your practice sessions to chose one of your favorite tunes and play it, as your feel it, on your instrument. Once you are comfortable and happy with your little performance, transition your simple casualness to a classical piece that you have been working on. You may be pleasantly surprised at the sudden elegance that you have attained... As an example of popular music as performed on violin, I invite you to visit my website: http://www.dreamviolin.com

It would be interesting to read your explanation for what you describe in the second half of your blog. I feel like you're right.

Your link here just takes you back to the main violinist.com website. Which is a shame because the dreamviolin site is quite beautiful, once you get to it.
