What do you think about the places of notes in the music in general?
Do you agree that every note must have the same place every time you play it?

Hi, I have been working on Vivaldi's Autumn concerto for a number years and I always have difficulty with the double stop passages of the main theme of both the 1st movement and the 3rd movement. I always used to play it 3rd position but now I am using it as a shift exercise between 2nd and 3rd. How would you suggest that it should be played. Thanks

Hi William: Many thanks for being positive & encouraging. I did not, however,get anything out of your video: it is a combination of being visually impaired & the computer video not flowing smoothly. Two specific thoughts: when you gestured to show a figure 8, your hand went in two directions, when you bowed, you only did a down bow; and when you spoke of compensatory bowing, you pointed to 'here' and 'there' without explaining where these points were.

Sautillé versus Spiccato ... Excellent lesson, William !
However, you did not show the movement of the wrist for each one of these bow strokes and I understand that these wrist movements are not the same. Also, I've been taught that for spiccato one should use the bow section near the frog (first third of the bow), whereas for sautille, one should use the middle of the bow. Is that correct ?
Thanks in advance for your advise !
