Hello, my name is Genesis and I play the viola. I’ve seen many of your videos and was wondering if you can make a video about how to prevent from squeaking when playing? PS: I’ve been playing for about 7 months.
Just wiping the strings with your bow solves the issue of squeaking, but doesn’t create a beautiful sound.
Violin playing is a game with speed and pressure. Let me explain how to let them work in your advantage and make it possible for you to create a beautiful tone.
Is this video useful to you? Please let me know in the comments!
