Musical Pointers on the Net

“Music is what feelings sound like.”   – Author Unknown

In addition to playing in our orchestra, the best way to improve your sound is to take lessons.  Unfortunately, our budgets or schedules can make that difficult at times.  If you can’t take regular lessons, and there is something you’d like to learn or improve, the next best thing is to surf the internet. There are several wonderful resources online for pointers on sound, technique, practice habits and more!

Below we have compiled a small list of YouTube videos. We hope they are helpful.
