When a 12 Year Old Plays Better Than You

When a 12 Year Old Plays Better Than You


Hi guys, welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin.
Today, we want to learn a new piece,
and the piece is called…
“Zigeunerweisen”.
It’s a very popular piece,
I always have trouble saying it,
and I don’t know if I’ve said it right just then.
We’ve never actually officially learned the piece before.
So of course,
we have to go online and seek out recordings to see
what it’s supposed to sound like.
All right, who’s going first?
Scissors, paper, rock!
Dammit.
You go first.
So of course, now you gotta try and play it.
*snickers*
My bow broke…
*sigh*
Did you hear that she’s 12 years old, Brett?
She’s 12.
*sigh*
Dude, I think I ruined it.
What?
Oh, f…
Oh…!
Time to buy a new bow.
What’re you doing?
There we go.
All right.
*chuckles*
She’s so confident.
I wonder if she gets nervous.
So calm.
So in control.
So in tune.
Such good tone.
Such bow control!
Good luck.
*sigh*
– We haven’t even gotten to the fast part yet! That’s a…
– I know.
Whoa.
Oh.
*gasp*
Whoa!
Oh ho ho!!!
She’s so like…
– As if it’s so easy…
– I know.
Okay, okay. Okay!
– It’s your turn bro.
– All right, bring it on!
I need some molto space.
What key is it in?
C…what?
C major, really? No, it’s not!
– It is!
– Oh is it?
– No, A minor.
– It’s—it doesn’t—
Yeah, it doesn’t sound like C major.
It is sad that I actually tried.
I feel you man.
I don’t even think I could like…
…do vibrato properly at all.
I still can’t do vibrato like she does.
And I’m 25!
*sigh*
*laughs*
And the “harmonicy” in there!
“Harmonics”.
No no no no no…stop, stop, stop.
*laughs*
– That’s enough.
– That’s too much. *chuckles*
Dude, we’re not even in shot, but doesn’t matter.
Oh, I hit it!
Nice.
We’re almost at the end, guys!
– We nearly finished learning the piece.
– I know.
This is how you learn, we’re so close.
Tempo has to be the same.
Alright, before you start,
I just want to check something.
Yeah, that’s right.
Standing ovation. Good.
People can appreciate talent.
*laughs* Oh!
So my goal, to the end.
When you learn a piece, what’s very important is…
…you have to keep the tempo.
I guess that’s how you learn a piece.
Dude I can’t play…I couldn’t sightread… *laughs*
Thanks for watching.

    There's a joke in S.Korea

    "You know why Kim Jung Eun can't invade S.Kor anymore?"
    "Why?"
    "We got 12 year old kids… They won't give a shxx even when 2nd Kor War starts…"

    You guys… 😛 your biggest problem is the "I don't think I could do it". Well, if you don't think you could, then you can't, simple as that. Look at that girl's face. She is so enjoying herself. I don't think this girl was forced to play by her parents, she just wants to play. That is the level of her passion. I usually really like your videos, but this one was sort of painful to watch. Y'know, she probably practiced for this for weeks, or months… and before she practiced other things for years, every day, getting her fingers strained and all. Well. That's the sort of passion you need to play well… isn't it? It doesn't really matter how old you are. You can play with passion at any age. (And yes, there have been people who proved this whole "the sooner you start the better" theory wrong. So there.)

    I think, if you can play from your head instead of sight reading, with enough practice you can play better. You are multitasking, just focus on music and add some love on it. Don't worry!

    Im just a bit sorry in the case that little girl never decided to play, and was just probably forced and then just went with the flow..

    Also when you realize the level of skills is so high that you can't even understand why they get so much surprised XD
