I just joined the baroque orchestra here at school and it's very interesting... and hard! Wow, I never really understood how difficult it can be! I recieved some basic instruction, including how to hold the instrument and bow, and the basics of the technique. I have absolute pitch so it's very difficult to read music!! If any of you have a baroque orchestra you can join, I would highly recommend it, I think it really helps free up your body and lets you concentrate on making expression with your right hand instead of your left. Does anyone have any suggestions on technique or any tips in general? Thanks.
