The demonstration videos on this page are from the preparatory violin repertoire for students. It is often difficult to find good performances of this music--sometimes only an audio recording is available with no video, or the video recording is of a very young student playing. Sometimes there is no performance available at all. These videos were recorded to give students the chance to hear the sweep of a piece, accompaniment and all, before learning it. Tempo adjustments, cuts, or use of an upper octave are occasionally used in the demonstrations to make the music more enjoyable for violinist and listener.
