You can now watch my most recent, full length violin lesson with pre-twinkler Hayley. Though the semester is over, we are continuing lessons through the winter break. This lesson is our 14th one together.
Now that Hayley’s violin posture is set and we are building her tone in tone builder reps, I want to spend time walking her through my Left Hand sequence. You will see in this lesson us continue exercises as well as start several new activities to build left hand skills.
You can watch the video in it’s entirety here or on my Youtube channel.
