Lesson 1 of 5 – Holding the violin
and welcome to the very first lesson.
To get the most out of this lesson, I recommend that you get a shoulder rest for your violin, if you do not already have one.
In this video you will learn:
- How to hold the violin
- To hold the violin in place with only the chin and release the left hand for playing instead of holding the violin
- Not to raise your shoulders
- It is easier to control the violin with a shoulder rest
In the next lesson, you will learn how to hold the bow and we will learn some meditative exercises, that I myself practice regularly in order to have perfect control over the bow.
Sunny greetings from
