All About Violin~~~~~~
一個熱愛小提琴但是拉的只是還可以的 Violin Player. 會拉一輩子的琴~~~
Halo 小殷,妳好~~謝謝妳的稱讚. 有空多來逛逛.snowmen 今天下午有跟我提起, 但訴我是住台北縣板橋火車站旁, 跟妳住的地方有一點距離ㄟ.
Halo Emi/小殷,(是唱片界的EMI嗎?@_@)其實有很多方式, 比方說一開始的時候一個星期上一次, 打基礎. 稍微好一點以後, 以兩個星期上一次的方式, 一次上久一點. 我的建議是開始基礎打好一點. :)我目前也在實驗性的錄製幫助學生練習的教材, 因為有太多人沒有辦法每一個星期都上課.我有自己的教室, 一般都是在哪裡上課.請留下妳的email在這裡, 我會很快的殺掉再給妳回信好嗎?
Wow...Meatball, this is a GREAT news! AJ's grandparents house is so close to where you live. I'm thinking to take him back to Taiwan in summer 2008. Would you mind to help AJ studying violin by then even just for a short term. He doesn't know how to read Chinese, but he's very familiar with your name MEATBALL, because I often mentioned to him about your articles. According to his violin program, he'll probably still in Russian Etude for school 3-5 level focus on shifting positions, scales(??), Schradieck finger exercises in Seven Positions Book, and he'll be playing Seitz Concerto G-dur with a quartte in May next year. Even it's on vacation, he still needs to study whatever his maestro's assignments. It's better for him to study with a professional than with me.If you are willing to do it for only short term, I'll definitely contact you then. My folks can show me how to get to your home, because I don't know many other places in Taipei anyway....Gracias!!
Halo Jean,Frankly, on the first glance of your comment, I almost wanted to say no. You see, his maestro has done a wonderful job, and I feel we should have a "no touching no interfering" sign posted on AJ's forehead as far as having a 2nd teacher goes. (cus I think his maestro is a very good!)But on the 2nd read, I realised I will be helping him with his maestro's assignments. So yes, certainly I can try to get to him to work through them faster and attempt to answer his questions, that's not a problem.Meatball is kind of easy to remember, right?:P
Yes! I totally agree with you, and I understand each musician has very distinct style. After reading your BLOG for a while, I just know your students are very lucky to have you. You might or might not know it, but you sure will make huge impact to inspire your violin students. Gracias!! If AJ and I are going back to Taiwan, we are so going to contact with you. Hopefully, we'll have chance to enjoy the concert from "The Fiddlers Ensemble"...HaHa!! Thanks again!!
Hi Jean,I actually have a favour to ask. Is it possible for you to take as many "russian etudes" and exercises back to Taiwan? :PIt is just that russian stuffs are difficult to get, and I would like to collect as many different things as possible... thanks!
I know what you meant. They are good stuff! Those Russian musicians only use their own materials for students. It would be hard for me to ask them for copying, because I found out during the years they didn't like to share with others, even between their own....I guess it's the culture thing.I have some in my hands so far, they are either for AJ's current level or for his future study. I'll write the list of what I have, but if you do your own reserch and let me know any other specific etudes you are interested in, I can ask AJ's maestro to buy them for me. He travels to Moscow every August and for sure he'll do me this favor. Now let's see what I've got...-H. Schradieck School of Violin Technics Volume 1 Finger Exercises in Seven Positions-Selected Etudes for Violin Music School 3-5..(also levels prior to these levels)-J.F. Mazas Etudes D'artistes Op.36(1-30)-Reader III-VII grades of children music schools in two volumes(also with one for violin & piano)-Music Reader for Violin Music School 3-4 Part 1(pieces)-Music Reader for violin Music School 5-6 part 1(pieces)-Young Virtuoso Collection of Virtuoso pieces for the violin and the piano(for pupils of children music schools and music colleges) Part 1Other than these, I've also have some pieces mostly for violin and piano......-J.B.Accolay concerto No.1 a minor -O. Novacek Perpetuum Mobile-Vivaldi concerto The Seasons(all four complete)-A. Dvorak Slavonic Dances -J. Brahms Hungarian Dances-L. Spohr Concerto No.2 in D minor 1st mvmt.-F. Kreisler Pieces I,II & III-P.Tchaikovsky Melancholic Serenade/Scherzo/Melody-V. Sher Concerto for Children(for violin & orchestra)-Henryk Wieniawski L'Ecole Moderne Op.10-J.S. Bach Concerto No.2 in E Major(violin & Orchestra)-Friedrich Seitz Schuler-Konzert No.2 in G major Op.13(Version for violin and string orchestra by Grigory Korchmar)These are all I have right now, but I just listed them randomly..cuz I have no idea which one AJ will learn by orders. All of them either from Moscow or St. Petersburg. My trip to Taiwan is still pending. Whatever you would like to have from the list above, I can make copies and mail them to you. Also make your list that I can ask maestro to buy for me next Aug., then I'll mail them to you too. ^_^
Hi Jean,Thank you very much for taking the time listing what you have. That's alot of work! Really appreciated.Actually I have almost everything you listed, and I don't know any Russian stuffs, that's the problem. I may not be looking for something specific, but more like teaching methods and how materials are used to achieve certain effects.For example, my prof and mimi zweig all advocate wiggling student's finger to learn vibrato, violin master class has this Dounis's rubbing exercise. I have a set of routine that takes about 10 mins, a combination of Dounis and Fischer's techniques plus some invention of my own. I am looking for stuffs like this. I thought AJ had been using some unusual materials from Russia, but it seems that it is the way the materials are used and how the maestro teaches AJ that makes the difference... that's prob not something I can "steal" easily... hmm....
No big deal! I typed fast.That's so true! Just like vibrato, there was never a specific etude for exercise this technique. It's the teaching method. He only showed AJ how to do it and started very slow(sounded extremely funny though), then later on more and more pieces or etudes that he told AJ to play with vibrato. He did mention to me one time that someone wrote a book that pretty much includes everything you need to know about violin. I've never picked up his pronunciation. It's probably already on your book list. I'll ask him again to confirm about it. He told me there were stores that sell everything about David Oistrakh....the entire stores. I'm so jealous.
I just noticed the back of one book says "Here you are the CLASSICS AND MODERN MUSIC, EDUCATIONAL AIDS FOR ALL LEVELS OF STUDYING(from kinder-gartens to conservatoires), BOOKS ABOUT MUSIC, CDS, DIRECTORRIES, GLOSSARIES"..(located in Petersburg)www.compozitor.spb.rue-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgI'm going to check it out later on for my own partituras as well. Check it out and see if you'll find anything helpful to your teaching. Good luck!
I would guess it is Dounis. He didn't write it but his student wrote it for him. That book is darn close to include everything about violin playing! Simon Fischer's "The Basics" and "Practices" are excellent additions too. But they have a lot of unresolved issues though, I have been trying very hard to fill the gaps. Argghhhhh... I can't read Russian! >_< ... Oistrakh is my violin hero!
I don't read Russian. According to his pronunciation, the name was "Grigorian"(spelled in Spanish, but should be similar in English too). He said this "Grigorian" wrote everything about violin......I have no idea. If you know anything about this person or his book, please let me know....I'm lazy. ^_^
Jean,In that case, I have no idea what he is referring to! Grigorian? Maybe a Russian or some European person? @_@
Hey! Meatball, I just uploaded few seconds of my frineds' recordings, and would like to share them with you....Merry X'mas!!http://www.wretch.cc/blog/JeanMexico&article_id=13538266
Jean,Thanks! They look great! (but a bit short hey? where are the rest of them?:P)Merry X'mas to you too!
Here is another one with few more seconds. It was the excertp of the very last encore piece(quintette)..I also uploaded AJ's recent practice in the blog. Maestro said that AJ got this "enfermedad de ninos"...children's common problem...acelerando..wanting to play faster and faster..you'll see! HaHa!!http://www.wretch.cc/blog/JeanMexico&article_id=13541113
Wow! Thanks! We are playing that piece too!! Without the piano though...
I remember to confirm with the maestro, the name wasn't Dounis or Gregorian(I thought)...the name was pronounced as "Yankilaivich".
I know!!!論小提琴教學與演奏 (簡)作 者(演奏者)：[俄]尤.伊.揚凱列維奇http://www.musiker.com.tw/bookmusic.asp?id=7401(應該吧?...)
