My daughter Cathleen's nightly violin playing session

May 10, 2010 16:46

Recently I have been recording my daughter during her nightly violin playing (notice I did not use the word "practice" haha) so that she can analyze her own performance from the video.

For example, she can see from her own video that her elbow is not close to her body, and her bowing is not straight (it's going in an arc which is wrong). Using video makes it easier for me to explain why I need her to correct her posture.

How about you? Do you use any "technology" (regardless of whether it is hi-tech or low-tech) to help you teach your child or student how to play violin? hahaha

Any comments or sharing of tips and info would be greatly appreciated.

Shawn
