Rating: 5 Professor Ehle, an Excellent Pedagogue by  * VSM MEMBER * on October 2016
I received an email inviting me to post a review of a recent video purchase.
Ref. “How to Study Meditation from Thais” presented by Todd Ehle.

Due to Professor Ehle years of experience in the field of teaching the violin, it is very easy to follow his instructions. I like that he let you know the bar or measure and the position that he is working at that moment, this help me tremendously. When is necessary, he turns to show his violin from a different angle for us to have a clear and better view. In my opinion, he is an excellent Pedagogue.

In addition, VSM-Fabrizio give you some tools to playback the video: jump to specific section, change the speed, loop part of the video etc., at a reasonable price.


P.D.- I posted some comments on September 30, 2016 but I do not know where. Please see copy below.

Dear Professor Ehle:

What a great idea! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your Meditation from Thais video. I am glad to see your fingers promenading along the fingerboard as I used to see them in the past. I was missing that.

Looking forward to have new videos of you teaching violin pieces, if it is possible, separate video for some easy and some with not so easy skills level. Saint-Saens: The Swan. Schubert: Serenade, Ave Maria. Kreisler: Schon Rosmarin, Liebesleid, Liebesfreud, to name just a few of an endless list.

Speaking of skills and unfortunately, I am not there yet to even attempt to learn Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Souvenir d’un Lieu Cher, Opus 42 No.3 “Melodie”. But I like the melody so much and the music is in my head for days that I entered the notes in my computer. Shifting is not that difficult as I originally thought, only that I do not know when is the best way due to my weak vibrato. I am sure you have a much wiser way to play it and perhaps you may consider to record a video lesson sometime in the future.

Thank you again Professor Ehle and thanks Fabrizio for this opportunity.
