Silent Night

I’ve been focusing on two things for the last month or so: (a) the assignments given to me by my instructor, which are pretty much me progressing through the Suzuki books, and (b) some pieces from a big book of holiday standards, all of them with piano accompaniment which Karin has been practicing along with me… apparently she’s got a performance planned somewhere soon.

So this is new. I’ve decided to add a new kind of post to this blog: recordings.

Impressed yet?

I hope not too much. As a beginner violinyst who has opted to use data and technology to help myself improve, public accountability is a big part of that. So I’ve been recording myself on video or on audio (using some very basic tools, like a GoPro or my iPhone.) And I’m going to be posting those audio clips here, collected.

Stay tuned. And let me know what you think.

Oh Come All Ye Faithful
