Updates and an urgent plea regarding YouTube

Hello Friends!  Thank you for stopping by my website!  I want to talk to you about a couple of things that I’m working on right now, and what you can do to help me regarding my YouTube channel. We’ll start with the urgent plea, which will be followed by the updates.

URGENT PLEA — Please subscribe to my YouTube channel!  This is the link and following the link is the reason why: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPVSIAFdcq4vqyDtnyqgRYg

Friends, YouTube has recently changed their policy regarding YouTube creators. This policy change directly and drastically affects new and small channel creators, such as myself. You can help us by visiting and subscribing to our channels and by watching, liking and commenting on our videos. YouTube doesn’t care about the content I have on my channel.  It doesn’t measure the amount of time I’ve put into creating those videos to post.  It can’t tell how much you will benefit by watching and learning from my videos.  What YouTube and advertisers care about is numbers and as I said, YouTube can’t measure content, my time, and the benefit to you.  What it does measure is viewing time and the number of subscribers. When I look at the analytics for my channel I can see that only 2.6% of the viewing time has been done by subscribers!  Friends, PLEASE subscribe to my channel! Your subscriptions (which are free), will help me keep doing what I’m doing. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPVSIAFdcq4vqyDtnyqgRYg


I have been working  on videos to post on YouTube.  In fact, all of the lessons from my theory books — Babette’s Quick Start Guide to Theory — are now up on YouTube.  If you like to watch rather than read, this is for you!  I also find that students like to watch YouTube as well, so this is how my students are now learning about theory that applies directly to their fiddle.  When they come to their lessons, I ask them questions about what they have seen.  Take a look!  Here is a link to Lesson One of Theory Book One: https://youtu.be/9qISgQ20Sak

There are 34 theory lessons on YouTube!  I will be adding links to all of the lessons here on my website.

I have started a rhythm series called Babette’s Guide to Rhythm and these lessons are on YouTube.  Rhythm isn’t just for fiddles.  Any musician, or budding musician, can use these rhythm lessons!  Here is a link to Rhythm Lesson One: https://youtu.be/RidDLAZhAh0

I am now working on rhythm lesson five! I will add links to all of the lessons here on my website.

My most popular video is How to Tune a Violin or Viola Using the Pegs!  This video is nearing 25,000 views!  Here is a link: https://youtu.be/CzZ7wlTlLEc

There are a few other things on my channel including a couple of songs from my CD and a couple of videos from my Amtrak trips.

So, thank you for stopping by my webpage!  Please also enjoy the resources I have on YouTube, and please don’t forget to subscribe!


Thank you!
