Bach Violin Fugue Improvisation

Edited: December 13, 2017, 11:12 AM · Hi folks! I hope this isn't considered spam as I just wanted to share something I produced that I think people here may enjoy. I am a producer of online instructional videos, and am amateur violinist. I recently had the chance to produce a lesson series for Jason Anick who is one of the jazz violin teachers at the Berklee College Of Music. We recorded an arrangement of Bach's Gm Fugue. Hope you enjoy it!

PS: Since I'm obsessed with violin, I hope one day to invite some great classical violinists into my studio to do some videos talking about their craft and all that fun stuff!
