      Love how Emily explains the bowing patterns. They make the tune sound so good and enable me to play faster and smoother. What a great teacher!

      Great workshop. Great tunes, lots of richness and complexity covered efficiently and clearly. Especially appreciated Emily's pretty brilliant duplication and analysis of Bruce Greene's bowing on Snowbird. Lotsa good stuff crammed into an hour. I would suggest considering only doing one tune per workshop, at least for tunes with such wealth to dig into. Awesome job, Emily. Looking forward to the next one!

      I really enjoyed the wprkshop snd like both tunes, especially the cool B part of the first one. Please do send videos: I took some videos with my phone and thought I had it covered, but forgot I was using headphones and have several silent movies of you playing fiddle. Great for bowing tips maybe but not much else.

      Pace was great. At first could not see both your hands but you adjusted. Nice job. - Jill Weaver
