      Is there anyway I can get a taped class? I couldn't make it to this one.

      Thank you Rayma. It was great. I only had trouble with that 3rd section of the A part but I’ll listen and figure it out. And I’m going to order some of your tea!

      Your comments re flexible bowing (expressing detail important to you) and tone (balance between bow speed and pressure) were spot on. Excellent teaching. Suggest you include a focus on the end phrase of each part - it helps to know the destination. Geoff (UK).

      The lesson moves right along without sacrificing time on the difficult parts to over-teach the easy parts. Also, Q&A time is way helpful.

      What was your favorite part of the performance?Rayna, you are such a good teacher. It's easy to follow your demo and the best part is having you play the tune in regular speed, moderate, and the slow bare bones. It's a great method and makes an impossible sounding tune accessible. Do this again soon! (I was in your class at swannanoa a couple of years ago.)
