My 13 year old in a CIM prep cincerto competition today. Gentle ciritiques please.

    Well, really great playing, especially for a 13 year old! The intonation was excellent and the overall tone and approach is very appropriate for Vivaldi in my opinion and sounds excellent.

    The first thing that I notice to critique is the rhythm. It could be a lot more solid in my opinion, try using a metronome beating on subdivisions (or on offbeats perhaps) so it can be noticed how the faster notes seem to rush.

    It might be the recording, but it seems like the shapes of the phrases and dynamics are there, but could be exaggerated a lot to make them more evident to the listener.

    Great playing!
  3. Thanks for the praise and the critique. He's playing it again in two weeks. He has a lesson this Saturday with Scott Dixon so that should help.
