Miriam Fried talks about the virtuoso character of the coda. It is not necessary to phrase each note, the violin part has not thematic interest. However, the important thing is to give form and direction to the groups of notes without interfering with the orchestral theme, and to show contrast in the registers.

The Professor then works issues such as rhythmic precision, sound balance, clarity in the arpeggios, articulation and accents, fingering and shifts, quantity and weight of the bow, among others. Finally, Prof. Fried advises the student on tuning: in certain passages, the student plays higher than the piano because she presses too hard the fingers on the fingerboard.
