TOPIC: THIS IS MY PLAN....BUT WILL I STICK TO IT????

THIS IS MY PLAN....BUT WILL I STICK TO IT???? 9 years 3 months ago #6886

I've been trying to "conquer" the mandolin and the fiddle at the same time (the term conquer used here losely :) ) However it's been so hard learning the songs for my fiddle lessons and the songs for FM's Bluegrass class at the same time...just not enough hours in the day ....but then I had an "Ah hah" moment. I now work on the songs that FM gives us on the mandolin but also on the fiddle. That way I can keep up with both instruments...and I'm not overwhelmed. My fiddle instructor doesn't mind which songs I work on as long as I practice....so now everybody is happy! ;)

Yeah, I've done this too. It really helps a lot, especially w/ mando. The only thing is that I usually end up playing concertos and fiddle tunes on the mandolin, but not playing any mando tunes on the fiddle. It's really fun, though. Unless I have something to practice for. That's the thing with doing fiddling and Suzuki...I'm always trying to do them both at once and end up playing something completely different than either of them.:( Which is fine...unless I'm doing orchestra.;) But like, I said before, it's still fun.:)

What is "Zuzuki" ?
Im guessing it has nothing to do with a motorcycle but that doesnt go very far.

No, contrary to popular belief, it's not a motorcycle.
Suzuki method classical violin. It has 10 volumes, and right now I'm working on finishing volume 6. It's kind of fun to play gavottes and etudes on the mando, it's just not quite as fun to do it when one is working towards a graduation recital. It's easier than playing them on the fiddle, that's for sure. :)

Martinezg, Suzuki is a method of teaching and learning to play the Violin (although it's used with other instruments now). This was started by a Japanese gentleman named Suzuki, after WWII. He believed any child could learn to play as long as it was done in the right environment and with the right instrument....so the violins were scaled down to children's sizes.....The family is urged to take part in this method of learning and this program is also supposed to teach character. Suzuki was trying to bring some happiness to people's lives after the devastation in Japan...a lot of the "home-schooled" children take Suzuki classes as they've proven to be very effective...There....my lesson for the day...:P
