You have a strong tone already! Good job! Try keeping your bow pinky finger bent. That should give you more control over your bow. It is hard to tell how your violin position is when the camera is so low, but I would recommend holding your violin a little bit higher on your shoulder. Then, what Will suggested for your left hand will really help. You want to keep your wrist straight and have a little space between your thumb and first finger. Keep your thumb a little lower on the fingerboard. You don’t want the neck of the violin sitting at the base of your thumb and your first finger. Don’t let your thumb get too high, it can peek over the fingerboard a little, but not too much. Hope this helps! You can message me if you have questions or find me under the lessons page.
