My name is Emilia (Emma). I came from Poland and I am 1 year and 5 months violin beginner – I have started playing violin in September 2014, month before my 17th birthday. Now I regret that I have started playing violin so late.
I have visited this site accidentally – I were watching violin webinars on youtube about vibrato. I wish I will be able to learn this technique – I am participating in a competition next month. Right now I am doing some research on developing the bow hold and guiding the bow properly. I am stunnded with some people bow control and I wish I could achieve such high level of bow control in my violin playing.
Good luck with your studies!
Hello Emma! Glad you joined our happy community. There are many valuable lessons here. You may want to check the Challenges (look above). One is a vibrato challenge that may help you with learning vibrato.
I’m glad too. I like the materials provided on this website. I wish also my small knowledge and experience wolud help some of you. I am a fan of repertoire research 🙂 I am always looking for something original to tackle with. Right now I found this piece – https://youtu.be/LNbzujruBeA I am thinkig about putting it somewhere to my practice schledule, but it just too much for me. If someone would like to work on this piece I have a sheet music that I can share with you.
