Fun violin goals
This month I have some fun violin goals! Since February is a short month and I will have lots of other activities I won’t set my goals too high for this month. Let’s just have some fun!! So what’s the plan for this month?
- Learn the 3rd movement of the Vivaldi Concerto A minor
- Hans Sitt Opus 32 book 2 etude 28 in 3rd position
- Complete the Fairytale challenge
Of course I will still do my technique exercise for learning 5th and 2nd position, and vibrato. But mostly I will focus on my pieces this month.
Vivaldi Concerto A minor
I’m still learning this concerto with the video course by Heather Broadbent. I already started with the 3rd movement about two weeks ago because I was just too curious about how it would be to learn this one. I think I’ve already learned the toughest parts of the piece. There is a passage of complicated 16th notes which I can play pretty well BUT way too slow. Challenge is to learn these notes faster now. And to learn the rest of the piece as well.
Hans Sitt Etude 28
This etude was one of my goals for last month. I did practice it for two weeks but then I stopped because I was doing too many things at once. So I left it for this month. The etude sounds beautiful and is completely in 3rd position. Now it will be a fun violin goal because I already know the notes, I just have to work on my intonation and speed it up a bit. So, no stress.
What this is about, I don’t know exactly yet. The Fairytale Challenge was announced by Violinspiration on their Facebook page. The challenge will be to learn one or two Disney songs each week of February. I don’t know yet which songs it will be (although the video below gives an idea already) and how difficult it will be. What I do know is that it will be fun to learn the Disney songs on the violin! I’m very excited to know more about it and to get started
