SLOW PRACTICE - Courante J.S. Bach - Suzuki Violin Book 7





Here is a practice video of the Courante by J.S. Bach in Suzuki Violin Book 7. I love this piece! Originally written for the cello in Bach's Cello Suite in G Major, it is a beautiful piece that challenges you with bowings, phrasing and style. Practice slow, practice often!
