    Love it!! Not sure I am ready for this yet!! Thank you for such a clear helpful video!

      When you buy the sheet music, there’s also an easy violin version without the fast runs and ornaments. You could definitely give that one a try :).

  2. Susan

    This was a fun video!

      Glad you like it, Susan 🙂

    Yep; your video was very enlightening. Your video stimulated my mind-emotion to not only use the violin for its musical gift…but to also hug the violin for its gift of sounds…like one’s pet wagging its tail.

      Awesome, Jeffrey!

    This is tons of fun, and your measure-by-measure tutorial is very helpful. Just a heads-up to those of you who are as naïve as I am about zip files. You’ll need to have a zip file opener (a zipper, ha ha) installed on your pc to open the music. After you do, you’ll find the copy easy to read. Notes are a reasonable size, not teensy weensy. Thanks much Zlata! Don’t worry about the “hard” version. It is not as difficult as it sounds.

      Thank you for adding this, Ann Marie, I’m glad this tutorial was fun and useful :).
