Comments on High Ceiling Music from Anonymous Violinist:
“In order to feel that kind of emotion with that level of music… you have to go through years and years of training. With stringless, you are able to access the transformative healing power of music while still learning muscle training. [After playing through Tchaikovsky], I was dunked into a river of strong, deep, electrifying pain and elation – I could feel the emotion. With stringless, you are ejected into the stratosphere and it can be overwhelming.”
From the Inventor:
I cry sometimes, when I play through Sibelius, Vieuxtemps, Bach, Vaughan Williams… there is such an intense feeling of accomplishment. And, when I played through the Elgar Cello Concerto, I cried quite hard, because I could literally feel the pain and beauty of the First World War. It’s really indescribable.
From a training perspective, stringless allows you to play through high-ceiling works, even if you’re not “good enough.” And, whether you like it or not, you’re getting better at the same time.
From a Stringless Student:
“Virtual play is fun.”
