Day 7 - the final Ninja Party!
 

This is the day that I invited two violinists, Nikki and Anne, selected from the Dr. Lynn's Practice Ninjas Facebook Group to join me in a LIVE violin masterclass online!

    • How to use DSO's (Double Stop Opportunities) to improve intonation 

    • How to use GO's (Grouping Opportunities) to build speed 

    • The role of the ulna bone in shifting 

    • The explanation of my AHA Strategy to improve intonation 

    • Using "Extenshifts" to increase your left-hand dexterity 

    • How I approach fourth finger vibrato in high registers 

    • The secrets behind ricochet and making your ricochet faster 

 

In the MASTERCLASS with Nikki and Anne (thanks for being so brave!), we covered: 

  • how to speed up fast, descending scales 
  • how to increase the speed of ricochet 

 

I also introduced a surprise guest from Spain and...

    What a blast Lynn. Thanks very much. More of this please! I like your approach and the selection of this piece allowing focus that is relevant for everyone- intonation, shifts, speed, hand/ arm tension, off the string bowing etc. I got my 5% I reckon!
