VIBRATO. When the teacher tells me to relax it’s impossible. It feels like holding a brick stone and then trying to break through it with the movement of only your wrists and finger tips

SOUNDING SMOOTH somehow, my violin always sounds less vibrant from my teacher.

FAST SIGHT READING I need time to observe the music piece and play it slowly. Then I will have to practice it unlike some people, they can just play any music they were given. Not me 🙁

3RD POSITION Is HARD. I tried it but I can not get the intonation right or the pitch right either. It always sounds scratchy so I gave up on it after trying once.

4TH FINGER I tend to avoid playing the fourth finger and play open strings, mostly because I can’t get the intonation perfectly.
