I was wondering how should i approached doing the studies. I studied them as a kid in school, shortly after the Wohlfahrt Op. Your teacher is right -- get the notes first. Isolate the troublesome measures -- at reduced tempo, if need be, enough to make the hard parts manageable.

Accuracy is paramount; speed comes later as you build accuracy and eliminate your points of hesitation. This is what works for me in learning new material. I'm curious -- and not quite clear on this point from reading your post: Was it your idea to work on the Kayser studies, or did your teacher assign them -- or, at least, recommend them?

If you scroll about halfway down the page, you'll see a list of etudes, Kayser among them, in the approximate order of recommended study. Kayser requires good knowledge of position playing -- although I don't remember at the moment just how high on the fingerboard these studies go.

I clearly remember high G, 4 ledgers above the staff; so this is either 6th position or a 4th-finger extension in 5th. There may be notes even higher -- I just don't recall at the moment. Not sure where you are in your position-playing, but I recommend a solid knowledge of the 7 regular positions before attempting Kayser.

Regarding "such long studies" -- I know what you mean; it can be mentally taxing if you're not accustomed to etudes as long as these. Break them into manageable chunks and work on them segment by segment.

Regarding my positing, I'm pretty solid with my 3rd position, its just that when I switch the 3rd position from E string to G string the intonation goes nasty Jim: I brought all my violin studies material to my teacher and she decided to use kayser as well as kinsey elementary progressive studies set 2 to ground me on my first position as well as the 3rd position before moving on to the other positions.

I must agree with you that I struggle with the hesitation problem Pierre: woot! But I must say your materials are really helpful I shall discuss it over with my teacher this thursday and get back with you all :D. I was just wondering would these studies be sufficient enough in preparing me for my grade 7 exams? I was wondering for the etudes how to reduce the hesitation?? My teacher always ask me to look ahead when I play another got some tips for me regarding this because i'm fairly weak on this.

Reducing and eliminating hesitation, for me, comes from isolating the troublesome measures -- or sometimes just the troublesome note sequences within these measures -- to pinpoint what is causing me to slow down or get off track.

I slow down -- not drastically, just enough to be able to think through the trouble spots logically and fix what's wrong. Don't practice the same parts over and over at a given tempo if you can't play them accurately. I like the rule of two strikes and you're out. If I'm working on something new and can't play certain measures correctly at bpm, for instance, I'll slow it down to, let's say, , where I can handle everything fine.

Then I'll try it at , then , then , then , then -- as long as I can play the passage correctly. Often this takes care of things. But if I start to have trouble again at, let's say, , then I'll stop, identify what's wrong, and try again at If I still can't handle it just right at that speed, then is my max for right now. I'll mark the troublesome measures and come back to them later. As I've said before, if you play something wrong three times at a given speed before you play it correctly once, then you're going to ingrain wrong automatic responses or muscle memory.

Better to let the correct practice at a lower speed sink in overnight and go through a ripening process. Hope this helps. Shar Music. Yamaha Silent Violin. Corilon Violins. Pirastro Strings.
