Verily, I tell you the truth: If you give unto me music that is written like this, you will receive in return one &#8220;aw hell naw&#8221; and a measure of shade.

beakermuppet said: Do you guys know of a good way to clean a chin rest? Sadly, I get terrible acne as well as a bruise and if I could safely clean it, I would forever in your debt. Thanks!

It really depends on the material. You can also just use a cloth to cover the chin rest to deal with the acne problem. 

As for the bruise, that should be your mark of pride. Unless it’s different from the normal violin hickey.

tuneraven said: I love your blog, its great! so because of family problems I had to leave a uni I was in abroad and come home and study in india. and I cant play in orchestra anymore (i used to play in a band too but i cant find anyone to jam with in my new college!) and that depresses me to that I barely practice anymore. I know ill be out of here in 3 years and I can rejoin orchestra somewhere ( I hope!) but please give me encouragement to keep practicing!!

I’ll do my best! Keep the music alive in your life, and good luck!

Glad You Came - With Violin

Seriously, just take three minutes and acknowledge this beautiful young brother and his talent. It’s worth it.

One of mt favorite things about human beings is when you can really SEE how much passion and love a person has for something.

Press play- you will not be disappointed. [:

Really, really worth the watch.

Okay is NOBODY going to acknowledge this talent?? Like, I was expecting some crappy vid where he played along with the vocal line (which is what I would have done, I admit it), but he made it all his own and it sounds FREAKING AMAZING. KUDOS, DUDE.

You know, I hate to say it but I haven’t seen that many black violinists out there. I’ve worked with one guy my freshman year of high school, but since then I haven’t seen anybody. But then this guy comes along and BLOWS MY MIND! Covering a pop song in such a way that it exceeds the original in every aspect is so incredibly impressive, especially since violins don’t tend to feature very heavily in pop music (I know there are exceptions). So don’t think if you choose to play a string instrument that you’re limited to classical—stretch the limits of our field. Go explore jazz. Do improv. Play pop. Feel things out, explore, and express, because that’s our job as musicians.

Old scores are so rude and stuck up I love it

It’s always the Beethoven scores! I have a book from the late 1800’s and the commentary at the front of each Sonata is quite passive aggressive. They make great points though.
