You might think that a violin case is relatively simple. It’s got a violin, and a bow, and not much else. There are multiple things in the case of a violinist that help you get set up and be prepared for any contingency. Here’s a list of what I have in my case.Continue reading What’s in my violin case?
Just a quick one as it’s late, and I need to be up early tomorrow.
My favourite class in college (well, University), would probably have been String Class. This was where we would play for the other string players at uni, and get specific feedback relating to string playing.
I remember my first performance, and I hated it. I felt like I didn’t deserve to be there. It probably didn’t help that string class was joined with the other Music Uni, because “there weren’t enough string players for their own class” (despite there being more string players than brass players, and brass players had their own seperate class). While they may not agree, we certainly felt like second class citizens, as if we were the string players who weren’t good enough to get into their school.
Anyway, eventually, WAAPA granted us our own string class. And it was awesome. It really helped bring the strings together, and start supporting each other. And while there were many things that I would say helped along the way, I would say that giving us our own string class really helped kick start the redevelopment of the strings program at WAAPA.
So that was my favourite uni class. What was yours?
