  1. The students who attended the Technique Class and Master Class with Ms.Marilyn McDonald benefited greatly from her instruction! During the group class, Ms. McDonald worked on scales, different bowing styles, general technique, and vibrato. When working with individual students, Ms. McDonald listened to individual students perform solo pieces that had prepared and gave positive comments as well as helped them improve their performance. Most students worked on producing a full sound using full bows with a relaxed approach.
