Keeping Elbow Still When Playing Violin
Welcome to Violin Tutor Pro. We’re going to learn how to keep our elbow still as a beginner type concept but actually could be prevented. I have never known this before. Now, the elbow is only going to move when you’re changing from string to string. Other than that we’re trying to prevent our arm from going backwards.
The movement of the arm is going to go this way. Now, the violin, you have to extent out with their form. It’s very important, otherwise if you use too much of your arm, your bow across the string is going to be really crooked. This can be harder to play straight. So, you’ve got to minimize that movement as much as possible. So, I'm on the D string, my elbow as long as I'm on the D string will stay relatively in the same spot. Now when I go inwards or towards the end is going to go end, then it’s going to go back out and stay right there. It’s not going to be going this way.
Just try that, this is actually incorrect. We’ll do that first. You see this all over the place and the arms using a lot of my shoulder, too much or lesser too. What about incorrectly want to use this muscle form in the wrist. This is where everything should be used to play with bow. So, this is correct now. It’s going to help feel that straighter across the finger more or across the strings. All right, the only time the elbow is going to pivot is while I’m changing strings.
So, now I’m going from the D to the A and I was to go down a little bit down here. As long I'm on the elbow I stay in that relatively position. That is going to be the lowest point for the elbow is going to be down here. Now the G is going to be the highest point for the elbow. That’s why when you first start you’re going to learn a lot of songs just on the D and the A because that’s going to minimize your movement of your elbow and make it easier for you.
Otherwise changes from my E to G is lot harder for beginners. That’s the reason for that. Alright some of the lesson to G and the D, A, E. All right, so I hope that helps and there are lots of pointers on my websites and different things with fundamentals that are really important so definitely visit my website at ViolinTutorPro.com. I’ll see you all there.
