I👏🏼LOVE👏🏼THIS👏🏼DONT👏🏼CAPRICE! Anxiety has been creeping in lately, but practicing has been such a good distraction. So far No 5 is totally my fav Dont caprice from opus 35. The harmony, the technical challenges, and the speed make for one satisfying practice session✨🎻✨ #dopracticedont#violaftw
#day87 passacagli-ing 🤗💓🎻 this is the word, right? 😂 #passacaglia Hope you had a wonderful day and that you're happy , never forget that happiness comes from within - we sometimes just need to remember ourselves of a very happy moment to catch the feeling 😊 Happiness needs practice as much as music needs it... was thinking of this today a lot! ❤ much love Lelie #100daysofpractice#practicejournal (speaking of happiness... also I have to say that I am soo happy to have @greencasegirl back in my instagram feed , missed you girl! 😘💕) 🎻 @lc_violintube
#day88 My rules for today : 1) do it until it's right 2) listen to your fingers 😄💓🎻 Well, sometimes rule 1 doesn't work, because some 'problems' need their ( practicing) *TIME* to be solved... then you shouldn't work the same passage for hours to get it right, it would be wasted time ( because it won't get better that day anyway.. work it, but know the time it needs). In this case rule 1 worked because I realized I needed to adjust the angle of my right arm for the string changes and needed to focus more on the length of the notes before the change.So I repeated them listening to the sound I produced. Rule 2) is kind of important, because you need to listen to yourself, no matter how good something may sound, I can tell you from my personal experience, that it's the greatest thing to have a passage not only *SOUNDING* but also *FEELING GOOD* . Anyway, don't want to desillusionize you.. but there are certain passages that may NEVER FEEL ( BUT SOUND) GOOD 😂😄👐 much love and a beautiful evening! Lelie 😘 #100daysofpractice#practicejournal#passacaglia ( 🎻 @lc_violintube - LINK TO MY YOUTUBE VIDEOS IN BIO! 😊)
Although it's been said many times, many ways - Merry Christmas to you! ❤️❄️🎄🎁 I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season! What are your favorite parts about this time of year? I've always loved making cookies and sitting in front of the fireplace ☺️🍪🔥
🎻The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) arranged for violin and orchestra by Bob Krogstad
Here’s the opening page of this 19 page monster piece. If you haven’t heard it go listen to it! It’s definitely one of the more epic piano pieces out there. You can think of it as Bach Chaconne (Busoni Remix) 😂
We serenaded the morning rush with Christmas medleys at #brentwoodstation in NW Calgary. We played a couple hours for lunch rush in #+15s by TransCanada.
BB chills in my the plush snow shell for my hard case in a pile of scarves, as usual.
Broke 40CAD within the Brentwood hour and started feeling greedy so I quit. Know when to quit! Otherwise youll be disappointed. As i slowly packed up, two people who hadnt heard me play tipped me out of Christmas spirit and because they love dogs :) Now we are pooped.
For all my musical friends! Quick whizz round the Musical Instrument Museum within Sforza Castle. What an absolute treat 😍 they had amazing displays of extremely old early violins with no f holes, only rectangular slots. They had all the string instruments as well as loads of ancient flutes, oboes, pianoforte, organs you name it! Cost nothing to go in so I highly recommend it if you’re ever in Milan. #violin#violinist#music#musician#milan#italy#orchestra#classicalmusic#classical#violino#violinista
