I just finished my NEW home violin studio and would love to have your opinion on some sound and lighting set up.

Hi! I'm Zlata

Classical violinist helping you overcome technical struggles and play with feeling by improving your bow technique.

Recently I moved into my new home and downstairs I have my home violin studio!

In this video I show you around and I would love to have your opinion on some sound and lighting set ups. I’ll demonstrate the difference with a little Mozart.

I’m looking forward creating some awesome videos in this new space and the creative juices are already flowing!

Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    Wow what a beautiful space Zlata! Yes, your sound does definitely improve if you are closer to the microphone. I think it sounds better. What do you think?

    Maybe instead of ceiling lights: no ceiling lights on. If you would like to get a better lightning, you can try to put a backlight behind you instead, to have a more beautiful glow/contrast of you against the back wall.

    Two key lights from the front instead of one ring light could also improve the lightning, however, that also takes up a lot of space which I can imagine is not worth it (I know what it is like to record videos between lots of lights and technique and it is not very cozy! :D)

    Congratulations on your home and your new studio – it must be such a great feeling to be able to have a dedicated workspace to make videos and work on your site.

      Thanks for your input, Julia 🙂

    What a beautiful space Zlata! I am happy for you. The second sound iteration was the best, I thought, and turning the overhead off is preferred for me. I also prefer to have the lamp off in back of you, but that is simply because a lit lamp means it is later in the day, and I am a heavy-duty morning person. A silly reason, I know! Are you eventually going to have a wall hanger for your violin or a table stand? Seeing my violin out and “waiting” just completes the ambience in my own music room. So cozy and inviting! Thanks for showing us around! From time to time, I hope to see how your children are growing.

      Thank you, Ann Marie, it happens that I usually leave my violin in it’s open case on the chair… and sometimes on the bookshelf.
