So excited to be back with our #epsoadayinthelife series! This is our musician of the week! My name is LeAnn Isaac and I have played in the second violin section for 33 years! I am the orchestra director at Hornedo Middle School where I have taught for 24 years! I have a very special program of over 350 students. What I do in a day (basically everyday) is what I love! That includes students, spending time with my family (who are the most important people in my life) and snuggling with my dogs when I get a break. I feel very blessed to be a part of EPSO and look forward to seeing all this weekend at our concert! #epsoadayinthelife #epso #elpasosymphonyorchestra #violin #violinist #symphony #concert #classicalmusic #teacher #pugs #family

Music so beautiful, he’s brought to tears. 🎼🎻❤️ #movedbymusic #classicalmusic #giftofmusic #myjoy #sweetestthingiveeverseen
I had my first lesson with Mr. Weilerstein a few days ago and it was so inspiring!! I also have a lot of new repertoire to keep me busy - mainly Prokofiev's beautiful 2nd concerto! This is the opening of the first movement - the solo violin plays alone for a few dark, brooding lines and then is joined by the orchestra.————————————————————————
🎶: Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2, 1st mov.

Looks like a 🌊 isn't it? The waterside Auditorio de Tenerife 🇪🇸 takes inspiration from the shape of a crashing wave, but the building’s form looks more like the arch of a scorpion’s tail. Architect Santiago Calatrava designed the white concrete building, which was completed in 2003

There He was, The little boy. Waiting for his name to be called. [Jennovah, please get closer. Why do you want to exist on this other dimension?] The little boy got closer to the Master of The Havona Gate and replied: [I need to experience it. The souls that returned from this place, have a wider vision than us. We only know perfection, happiness, truth, beauty and infinite power.] [I see, but I must say, the journey you will do to get there is nothing compared to the experiences, feelings and moments you will have to encounter over there. All the souls on that spherical living planet are from all the Universal Schools of Evolution. You will meet all types of souls over there, some willing and peaceful, some not. Many souls never came back but we know you will be able to approach us again and continue your evolution to higher grounds. [I will.] - [Ok, step up little friend. I wish you the best, we love you and we will be waiting for you to return. Embrace it whenever you can. Bring light to your mind while existing as a living organism. Be yourself. Never lose hope.  Experience it and when in doubt, use common sense.] [Gotcha. 😉 I am ready.] | ( ) .............¬Г¬Г¬Г¬Г······¤........................°. by dj eho kraio

There He was, The little boy. Waiting for his name to be called. [Jennovah, please get closer. Why do you want to exist on this other dimension?] The little boy got closer to the Master of The Havona Gate and replied: [I need to experience it. The souls that returned from this place, have a wider vision than us. We only know perfection, happiness, truth, beauty and infinite power.] [I see, but I must say, the journey you will do to get there is nothing compared to the experiences, feelings and moments you will have to encounter over there. All the souls on that spherical living planet are from all the Universal Schools of Evolution. You will meet all types of souls over there, some willing and peaceful, some not.

Soooo we're doing the Chester Overture by William Schuman and I'm on first clarinet! Things I definitely want to strive for : Faster articulations because this is at 140 i think and the tempo says 160. A well supported altissimo range because all the recordings before this the altissimo sounded really bad lmao. And lastly Techniqueeee😫 my fingers and my tounge don't line up alot so that's a must. Leave suggestions and tips in the comments! Happy practicing 😆!

I’m so tired but for some reason I don’t want to stop playing. For last weeks practicing has turned into some sort of meditation that takes me away from reality, reality I can’t and don’t want to accept.

I had a really phenomenal time tonight making music with my new friends! The menu was Shostakovich’s 9th Symphony, a new composition by the wildly brilliant Roger Johansson (who is on faculty here at school), and Schumann’s 2nd Symphony. I love every opportunity to break out the alto, but tonight was really quite special for me. #dmitrishostakovich #robertschumann #universityofgothenburg #musicmaking #classicalmusic #contemporarymusic #edwardstrombones #jprathtrombones

Mercurio entra en ♎ #Libra, orientando nuestra mente hacia el arte, la belleza y la armonía. Es el Mercurio natal del compositor Gustav Holst, quien nació un 21 de septiembre como hoy pero de 1874, célebre por su suite #ThePlanets. Contrariamente a lo que se piensa, y según sus propias palabras, no se inspiró en la astronomía sino en la astrología, cuando conoció la obra del astrólogo inglés Alan Leo. En esta suite Mercurio es ágil, lúdico, inteligente, expresivo, lleno de texturas audaces y matices aéreos, exactamente como la astrología suele describirlo. Cuando me consultan por bibliografía astrológica, siempre digo que para entender los planetas no hay nada mejor que este tratado musical de Holst. DecimoDoctor.com

FOCUS — Lack of attention to detail is the path to mediocrity. On the flip side, my voice instructor who is one of the world's top pedagogues always says that if you can manage 80%, the rest will take care of itself. But how do you quantify 80% in music? It's still extremely subjective, but all I can say is to listen. Constantly. To professionals, to students… Social media is a wealth of both raw and staged musical footage. Use your resources, and build a solid frame of reference.

In grade school, there was a one player in band who was younger than me. He was probably one of the most talented musicians we ever produced in my small town. But did we produce his skills? Was he born with it? Neither. He listened. Constantly. This was before YouTube became as big as it is now. He obtained a massive box of CD's and tapes and such and spent countless hours with them, if I remember correctly.

I've spent around 3 1/2 months with this set of exercises on and off. It's been a journey. While I've focused on other things as well, these have been the real elephant in the room. They are brutal in their demands of sliding individual fingers up and down the string while mostly maintaining the frame of the hand. Accuracy is a beast, and I am still vehemently opposed to stickers.

But there came a point where it simply started to click, and I would have never reached that point without FOCUS: long-term, exacting focus. It's crucial to have the right technical concepts as well, but it's also so easy to try to move on to something different and more “advanced” much sooner than you're truly ready. I feel these exercises have paved the way for me to more-accurately approach chromatics in material I work on moving forward.

THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG? — Student violinists at different points must choose whether to focus on bowing or the left hand (fingerings and pitch). Quite a few teachers, artists, students, and observers consider bowing to be the primary difficulty and more important than the left hand in order to get a jumpstart on artistry.

I generally disagree, and my studies hinge on that. Intonation and left hand technique are by far the most complex. At the end of the day, any passage of music can be simplified to note-by-note bowing to work on intonation and left hand speed. Bowing can easily be applied second.

With music as a gestalt, however, bowing is also a crucial component. Thus-far, my focus being on securing the left hand has kept bowing on the back burner. In the last few days, I have finally been working bowing studies into my practice program. A mirror is proving crucial, which I have setup in an ideal spot in my practice space.

My biggest goals coming in have included bowing in precisely one spot on the string and not “swimming” or relocating out of carelessness, keeping perpendicular to the string, relieving shoulder and arm tension while improving my posture form, and keeping my chosen bow hold consistent.

One of my greatest surprises and challenges has actually been introduced by Ševčík in double stopping. It is my first real work with double stopping, which proves difficult not just with the left hand (down the road), but also with the bow arm. It's extremely difficult at first to sustain two pitches at once and requires a lot of stability in the bow.

Enjoy viewing my first steps at isolating my bowing…

SCALES — There is almost no instrument that scales are considered more vital for than a stringed instrument. And with the violin being the smallest stringed instrument, with therefore the intervals being closest together, that makes it all the more crucial. With a piano, at least the keys will always visually be in the same place and with set tuning.

With the fretless nature of the violin, however, a player's abilities are often gauged by their ability to play scales. Scales are the roadmap of the location of each note on each string. In addition to multi-string scales, one-string scales are also crucial to learn the precise locations of notes on each individual string. In Carl Flesch's method, Flesch includes single-string scales FIRST. This fits my own approach to learning the violin, considering single-string playing and shifting prerequisite to string crossing.

I have included a standard three-octave, all-strings scale as a fifth video. C Major is an excellent scale to start with, because it begins in second position which is not too high to start with but outside the typical first position “default.” Enjoy! I hope you find watching my beginner experiences valuable, as I start to tackle this crucial cornerstone of violin technique… . . . Videos from Ševčík's bowing method coming soon, a new study I have been just beginning…

Today I got my bow back from the luthier with a fresh rehair! It hadn't been rehaired since I bought it online, and it didn't play near as well as their shop bows. So I left it on Friday to be redone. I also asked what rosins they see a lot of professionals use, and she immediately went for this P. Guillaume. So I got a cake of it, too. I haven't been too thrilled with my Larsen rosin, though I'm no expert on the matter, yet. But it doesn't hurt to try a recommendation.

I can't wait to get some new videos up for all of you! I've been very successfully working on several exciting things I'll be sharing soon. So Follow if you haven't yet, and stay tuned! 🔥 New videos with the new violin, new bow hair, and new rosin coming soon! 🐸☕️

After trying SEVERAL instruments within a pretty wide price range, this English violin from the 1700's blew the others completely out of the water. There was a major repair done on the back over a hundred years ago, a repair that devalued the sales price of the instrument. But the quality of sound remained and far-outshines other instruments in its price range. The whole instrument vibrates to a far greater degree, and where there were holes in the resonance of the others, this one has nothing but color. It was a very easy choice, though the price was steep on my budget.

I can't wait to continue moving forward with a proper instrument! It's already worlds easier to play with accuracy and without tension. The shop was kind enough to let me borrow a bow. I decided within seconds of comparing my bow with the shop bows that the hair on mine was s*** by comparison, so I decided to have mine rehaired at quality. Will be picking that back up on Tuesday! Videos will be coming VERY soon.

At first glance, one would think these exercises mostly about moving smoothly when shifting. They're so much more than that. One of the most difficult parts of the fretless nature of the violin is that the notes become closer together as you go higher. Multi-string scales and exercises don't fully address this issue on all strings, and they don't address the difficulty of playing narrowing intervals higher on lower strings (what a mouthful!). When I was in undergrad, it used to carve my ears out listening to violinists and violists. Even in college, the intonation was soul-scathing! Coming into learning the violin, I've maintained a determination to fill whatever holes exist in violin pedagogy that prevent students from learning to play increasingly in-tune from the beginning. Forgoing first-position mastery and a multi-string focus have been keys to this. By studying each string individually as prerequisite to string-crossing, I am both training my ear and body posture up and down the full length of each string. The ear training is probably the most-difficult, which is where an electric keyboard is absolutely vital.

With this exercise, I have focused mostly on the fourth string, as it is the most difficult to navigate smoothly. I've placed the first string video first in this video series in order to keep things mixed up and exciting.

Hopefully seeing my humble beginnings at serious exercise book studying will be of some value to you…

I'm unreasonably obsessed with playability on my G string. It's the most difficult string by far to play high on, and without the entire violin setup perfectly, that difficulty only compounds itself… Total freedom on the lowest string enables total freedom on all strings.

One thing I've become obsessed with is how tilted high quality violinists manage to keep their instruments. It's almost as if they have them turned so they can show you what their fingers are doing. But what it does is allow the player to more easily access the lower strings and not go sky high with the bow arm.

I had abandoned my shoulder rest and committed to a Hollywood-style chin rest. The chin rest was very expensive. After pulling an all-nighter with some serious experimentation, the shoulder rest is back on, and the chin rest has been changed out for my Guarneri. It's really fascinating how probably 98% of quality violinists play on a Guarneri, and I'm starting to see why. There's something about the curve to it that allows a player to comfortably tilt the instrument. A shoulder rest becomes crucial in securing the tilted instrument without clamping at the hand.

I had abandoned the shoulder rest due to difficulty keeping the instrument stable, but interestingly, it's much easier to keep it stable with a shoulder rest when using the Guarneri. It was the other chin rest that caused problems when combined with the shoulder rest.

A couple of things are very clear, though. 1) Watch invariable trends among pros that are well-outside commonly-discussed violin pedagogy. 2) Don't stay in a lower position on any string. Practice the full length of every string to know what your setup is dealing with. 3) Expect to spend lots and lots of 💰 experimenting… I'm sure more changes are still to come, for me…
I'm unreasonably obsessed with playability on my G string. It's the most difficult string by far to play high on, and without the entire violin setup perfectly, that difficulty only compounds itself… Total freedom on the lowest string enables total freedom on all strings. One thing I've become obsessed with is how tilted high quality violinists manage to keep their instruments. It's almost as if they have them turned so they can show you what their fingers are doing. But what it does is allow the player to more easily access the lower strings and not go sky high with the bow arm. I had abandoned my shoulder rest and committed to a Hollywood-style chin rest. The chin rest was very expensive. After pulling an all-nighter with some serious experimentation, the shoulder rest is back on, and the chin rest has been changed out for my Guarneri.

NEW VIDEOS & RESTART COMING SOON!!!!! But first, I would just like to say that Ševčík's shifting studies are life!!! If you only stick to his main set of exercises, you are really missing out. These exercises, in addition to Carl Flesch's scales, have been allowing me to explore the full extent of each string separately. String crossing is a very hard and important technique to develop, but what is also extremely crucial is being able to navigate the length of the instrument smoothly. I also believe failing to study doing so appropriately and fully is the primary reason for violinists being unable to play in-tune, since intervals get smaller the further you go up a string.

These exercises have dipped my toes into really listening very carefully to my intervals as I shift and repeat the same patterns at different scale degrees all the way up each individual string. If you've not tried them, whatever level you're at, you're really cheating yourself! I'm still in the very early stages, and I can manage. I also see plenty of advanced violinists who need a little of this type of TLC…🤐 (no names, no pack drill)

BEHOLD: Il Cannone, by Larsen Strings

As you can hear, these strings have a great core to them, and there is such a wonderful balance from the lowest string to the highest! I no longer am faced with a dull, muffled G string sound! I am truly in love!

I will be adding the second finger, soon, in my newest exercise set I just finished. I will, however, share a few final first finger (first, third, and fifth position) exercises and my progress before moving on! I look to share some more progress videos Monday or Tuesday before putting these exercises to bed.

Oh how I long and look forward to learning the études of Schradieck, Kreutzer, Ševčík, Gaviniès, Rode, and the Paganini Caprices…apart from repertoire.

But isolating the fundamental positions first is crucial, alongside developing a growing, theoretical understanding of playing and the violin in general. I only very recently realized players keep their hands completely and totally still, when they move their fingers to play a fingering pattern. Only the fingers move, nothing else. I have also been discovering the importance of proper finger arch in accuracy and repeatability of finger placement.

But more than anything else, correctly landing in a position is extremely difficult. Until you can accurately land on the main positions with the thumb and first finger, repeatable each time, how can you even justify adding a second finger, even in first position? Once I do indeed begin and manage to add the second finger through the three main positions, I plan to fill in the second and fourth positions. Chromatics will come later, with the sixth and seventh positions to follow.

It's a truly long process, but learning something intelligently is crucial. I find myself more and more fascinated with detailed work on tuning and accuracy, and I am increasingly grateful to myself for not overcomplicating the process prematurely. The new Larsen strings and rosin are fantastic upgrades to my studies, as well! The strings are astonishingly responsive, and the rosin leaves minimal dust!

Happy Easter weekend . . .

Larsen Il Cannone went on without a hitch! But later in the process of retuning, I was flustered, thought I was turning the A peg, and snapped the E (pictured here installed, before it was broken). I guess it was inevitable. I'd never snapped a string before, and I was in an uncomfortable setting dressed from recording and in bright lighting not in a right mind. This picture was taken before the bridge was corrected (while a bit tilted forward). So we are back to the Pirastro Gold E until Monday or Tuesday, when a replacement will be here.

Much to my delight, I actually believe I would prefer a whole set of soloists which will be cheaper in future. I will be able to order from Amazon for right at around $80 instead of individually elsewhere for around $11 more. It makes some sense. My Chinese violin is sprayed polyurethane which inhibits vibration. It makes sense to me it works better with a higher-tension string.

The G and E Il Cannone soloists both have shocking warmth to them at the heart of the sound. All four strings still sound quite metallic, as Larsens do in beginning, particularly the Il Cannone strings. But that is breaking in fast, and these strings are real monsters. They are so very powerful, can play insane dynamics, including a crystal-clear pianissimo, and the G has just the kind of cut to it and extra kick I was looking for to play more in-balance on my instrument. The Larsen red rosin is much-less dust than the Pirastro Goldflex and plays very, very well, so I am also quite pleased with that!

The other drastic difference is the feel under the fingers! They feel quite metallic. They will definitely be a finger strengthener for me! They will give me fingertips of steel. LOL.

This is probably my favorite exercise from this set! The G string is an extremely important string for a soloist, and my instrument in general tends to lack in power on the G string. When I buy new strings, I plan to get the Larsen Il Cannone strings. The A and D will be Medium, but the G and E will both be Soloist grade. Soloist is brighter and more powerful!

This exercise has really allowed me to spend a great deal of care improving my ear to tuning on the lowest string and develop the hand coordination necessary to reach around that far. I look forward to more exercises that continue this process!

I promise I haven't forgotten everyone! I know the point of sharing practice videos is to share your development, but there is still a certain personal standard I think we all possess in what shouldn't quite yet see the light of day!

What these exercises begin to allow me as a student to start hacking away at is what I'm finding to be the genesis of playing the violin. The first finger accompanied by the thumb is where every position starts, and first, third, and fifth are the major positions on the violin. Everything else starts to fill in the gaps from here.

Precision in position location is crucial in tuning. Technical areas such as knuckle position, rotating the hand around the fingerboard to the lower strings, sliding silently but accurately up the string, and accurately judging where a position begins when going to that position cold (without a slide) are all keys to the many locks on the door of precise tuning on the violin.

By adding fingers more slowly than in other methods, I am at much more liberty to focus daily on these keys that will make learning the violin a joy and not a frustration. It is indeed often frustrating even in my limited focus to get tuning exactly right, but it is universes easier than if I were dealing with the fine coordinations of using more fingers than I am ready for in my playing.

I may possibly make one more video very (hopefully) soon from this exercise series I've been working diligently on, but I will mostly be working toward adding a second set of exercises covering these three major positions with the first finger very soon. I am hoping for just one more set of exercises on this before adding the second finger!

One of the most difficult things with playing the violin is down-shifting, especially when you're going from a position over or close to being over the body of the violin to a position away from the body.

I've worked a lot so far on other exercises from this series, as well, but the first is by-far the most difficult. Nothing is better for getting those upper positions on lower strings more and more in-tune! Upper strings are much easier. It's the lower strings you have to really focus on the most, because they take a lot more stretching to reach them!

And yes, I'm not doing full bow strokes as written! I've decided I might as well get used to splitting them up, when I'm practicing under-tempo! 🤣🎻

Well, after about 2 weeks studying these exercises, I'm finally ready to move forward to first finger, fifth position. Developing these exercises has seen installing my new Whittner, center-mounted chin rest and later my new Dov-Music, harp-style tailpiece! I am loving both! I used my condenser mic for this, and it got a much better, acoustical sound.

It also saw me get on an OCD spell with my bow hair. I was getting a lot of benign squeaks, and my bow wasn't responding as immediately as it should have been. I had noticed some bow hairs would slacken faster than others, and others would slacked way-more-slowly. About 15 clipped hairs later, I had a clear tone. No one tells you to clip bad hairs that haven't broken yet…

Anyway… My approach in not learning the entire first position first is paying huge dividends. I am excited about the progress of my bowing, progress in my tuning accuracy, progress in changing strings with the first finger on the string being changed from without chirps, progress in thumb posture, and progress in sliding without gripping or leaving the thumb behind.

Onwards to the breach!!!!
