Cheryl started violin when she was 7 with Vivienne, last February she did well in her Grade 5 ABRSM Examinations, and this year we are preparing for the Grade 7 ABRSM Performance Grade Exams. As one of the earliest students, she has participated in all of Belcanto Violins Music Studios concerts both internally and externally. She has moved steadily through both technique and repertoire and has developed a deep understanding of playing and learning the violin. We hope in the future, she can also teach the instrument to others! She will also be performing a Mozart Sonata in our coming Mozart concert sponsored by Yamaha/Bosendorfer. In this recital she plays Seitz, Friedrich Student Concerto No.4, Op.15 will be her fourth piece that she will be playing for the Grade 7 Examination, still very much a work in progress however that is what these videos are for as a reflection for our improvement!

Tahera started as an almost beginner with Vivienne. She is a Banker by profession and has taken up to play the violin as her hobby. As a student despite having a very busy day job, she is very focused and committed in grasping the correct concepts of playing the violin and often memorizes even her Etudes for class. In the last concert In August 2020, she played Oskar Rieding’s 1st and 2nd Movement and in this concert, she will be playing the 3rd Movement to complete the concerto. She has understood all of the first position and we have also moved on in studying the second position.

We have decided to record this piece Minuet by Bach in A major as a memory of the first song he has played at Belcanto Violins Music Studio. We hope to hear more performances from Tyler in the coming months.
