Scales, Etudes, and Auditions

One among you, dear readers, has a big scary audition coming up this weekend. (And not to name names, but she has confessed to letting the scales slide, because of a rummor that they rarely ask for scales).

One among you is starting to get a little nervous and worry that maybe ignoring the scales to concentrate on the Bach may have been a bad idea.

For you, dear nameles one who is playing for big scarey Northwestern faculty this weekend, I share this classic violin lesson with a musical master. (Pay particular attention the breathing - maybe it's something you want to emulate!)
