I was first inspired to learn the violin by watching a string quartet playing with a Spanish rock Band named "Bacilios." Now, a few Suzuki books later, (4 to be exact), I find myself ... bored. I was first mesmerized how the violin sounded with a rock backing, amazed at its versatility. But can the violin really be that limited in style? Wait. No. Correction. Can violinist/teachers be that closed minded in music literature? Maybe its just that I'm young but I believe that there can be so much MORE! The violin is the musical instrument that most closely resembles the human voice... unfortunately there seems to be more opera singers in the violin than soul singers. Can someone bring the violin BACK?
Well i hope you enjoy this video of a pioneer violinist, Paul Dateh.
