On another topic, someone mentioned watching videos of violinists, including young students whose parents have videotaped them at various stages of progression. Any recommendations about good videos to watch with a 5 year-old? I think watching the progression sounds interesting! We found some good individual videos, but it seems to take me a lot of time to find what I am looking foron YouTube, so can anyone set me in the right direction?

Is there a way to have a forum where we can post videos that are not necessarily public to anyone on the web? Like YouTube (easy to upload and share) but more of a member only forum so as to let families feel better about their child’s lesson being posted online. This would be such a wonderful tool for us teachers—like a practicum, but more frequent feedback! :D :idea:

Zoki-

YouTube allows you to associate members as friends and then share a file only with friends. A bit un-managable for a national community but might well work with a small group of folks. It is intended (as far as I can tell) to allow family members to share videos without getting too creeped out…

I would love to know what nao11 stated—however I’m only bi-lingual (English & Music)!

Since this post was re-addressed I’ll answer it in my own way and hope we can get a translation of the other post.

myviolinrecital.com was specifically designed to meet the needs of sharing videos with family and amongst other violinists for reference. The website is carefully screened so that nothing inappropriate for children is available. Also included is an area for teaching demos. Just this week I added another video featuring the bow hand. Searching is quick and easy and gets straight to violin repertoire you want to hear without having to filter through tons of stuff on YouTube.

Although at this time I’m using YouTube to host videos—it is in our plans to host our own videos in the future giving us complete control over content of videos (recitals and teacher demos). Future plans also include other instruments in addition to violin.

A bit about posting on YouTube.
You can post and have private viewings but I believe after 25 viewings the video is no longer available.
After receiving permission from my students’ parents—I posted their videos using cryptic names and I disabled any ratings and comments. This helps hiding out in a way but still using YouTube as a host for videos. I can then create a link from myviolinrecital.com to the video posted on YouTube. The only downside to this is after the video is viewed Youtube tries to hook you back to their website by tempting you to click on items in the video screen. As long as you only select myviolinrecital.com items you’ll remain on myviolinrecital.com

Submitting your own video on myviolinrecital.com and YouTube is pretty simple. If you have any questions about the process I’ll be happy to help you find an answer. Keeping up with new technology when you’re working, managing a household, who knows what else can be challenging. But new technology keeps getting more and more user friendly!

Taking the time to post videos is well worth it. People work so hard for 1 performance and then poof it’s over. It’s really really nice to have it documented so violinists can look back on the work they’ve and see how far they’ve advanced.

“Fiddleblast” (Rigo Murillo, a professional violinist and a Suzuki violin teacher) has a very good instructional video for Minuet 1 by Bach. For my four year-old, I choose a video that has a quality recording of sound as well as visual that helps observation; i.e. no fast clipping of images but long shot of a violinist that shows his/her bow hold, etc. I lean towards older videos (up to 90’s) of established violinists since they don’t do much of flashy acts that are not necessarily great teaching tools for the beginners. Itzak Perlman is always good. My son somehow loves watching Tchikovsky Violin Concerto First Movement perfomed by Akiko Suwanai during Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1990. It’s a good recording, both in sound and visual. I don’t usually show my son other beginners’ performance. He gets that in group lesson.
