Any store?

May 9, 2009 19:07

I don't know if this is inapropriate in any way if it is I am really sorry. I am from Ecuador, a really beautiful country but, here there is no way to get a good quality instruments cases shoulder rests, etc unless you have a way to buy it in another country (except guitars) so I was wondering if a store could make something like an instrument exposition in a hotel or somewhere else. It would be great if a store could bring different instruments from the intermedium to advanced level and also cases, bows shoulder rests, even books and believe me there will be more people interested in music specially because there is a foundation that started a program similar to venezuela's "El sistema".

Update about my violin life

May 8, 2009 19:07

It has been a long time sice I posted a blog so I have a lot to talk about. Right now Im working in the accolay an bach violin concerto in a minor. I have progressed a lot in the accolay and I really enjoy practicing it, on the other hand, even though bach's concerto is one of my favorites I'm on that phase where I am learning the fingerings and sometimes I lose the rythm so I get a little frustrated. What mi really like is that I had great lessons this week, I could make everything my teacher told me and I feel more confortable changing positions, so I had a really great week. Also next month I will be presenting my essay, and obviously it will be about the violin. The title of my essay is "the violin and Andre rieu" I will make another entry about this a few days before I have the oral presentation, so in conclusion my life in general has been great lately but specially everything relate to the violin
