I uploaded a video of my technical practice session today~
I still need to work on bowing straight. Should really focus on that again because I’m not actively practicing that. Strangely when I play with my teacher she keeps telling me to pull the elbow more towards me to straighten the bow but when I record it often looks like I would have to put my arm more forward to straighten it and never the other way round. It’s frustrating. I have a tool to practice straight bows but I don’t like using it very much because the tone quality suffers. It helps a lot though so maybe I should do that at least for a few minutes before I start a session.
In the vibrato part I had my hand folded too much when I practiced on the first finger. I think I don’t always do that, because if I remember correctly in the other video I also recorded today I think I am not doing that but could be wrong. Too lazy to check now it took forever to record and render all this.xD I’ll post the other video when it’s uploaded.
And copy paste from youtube:
This video turned out longer than I planned, but for everyone who is interested in how I practice techniques this video is for you~
I’ve been playing the violin for almost 2 years now and this is my current progress concerning vibrato and a flexible bow hand.
Additionally I included a Wohlfahrt etude because that one has a lot of technical stuff even though it’s so short.
It will still take some time till it sounds nice, but I’ll get there!
