    Hi everyone! I really enjoyed the first challenge and just finished recording myself. I first attempted the modified version in first position and also attempted shifting. I found it harder to use the DSO method in 5th and 7th position. Lots of work still to do but I definitely had more than a 5% improvement.

    Hi Rhonda and Diane! Thanks for watching and leaving a comment! Very true: leaving your fingers down for double stop opportunities (DSO) is harder in the higher positions as there's less room for the fingers. Hopefully by adjusting your fingers so that they are more on the tips when needed, that will help!

    Thank you for a new way to explain shifting to my students! I have one student who's been struggling more than others. I'm excited to share this :)
