  1. Thank you for this video. I am looking at a lot of violin tutorial videos and I really have to say that I like yours the best. The explanatians are really clear and easy to follow. I am playing the piano and the flute since more than 20 years now and I am teaching the violin to myself right now. Doing it for almost one year now but at some point I will get myself a teacher because I reach some limits now. But it is a lot of fun and gives me a break in my routine as a language teacher. So again, thank you.

  2. Thank you this video was really profitable for learning the vibrato.
    How long would it take to learn the adequate speed of vibrato?
    I could also not help but notice the two violins in the background haha do you still use them?
    Thank you again!

  3. thank you Laura for such a simple session. For a person like me from India these lessens are very much helpful. Once again for your helping hand.

  4. Thank youu so muchh <3, you are an extremely good teacher, many can play but not many can teach. Thanks again!

  5. Many thanks, I’m on day ten and this helps a lot. I was wondering if the frequency of the vibrato which seems to begin at zero for each note and then increase to a maximum- does this maximum frequency have a relationship to the key of the tune?

  6. I am curious on your demonstration using the tape. I am wondering is actual vibrato sliding your finger (like the tape exercise) or is it more of a rolling and the tape exercise just helps builds those muscles. I have ignored vibrato for years on the fiddle because after 30yr of guitar you know which way my fingers want to move! Your video has helped. TY
