HI! Brand new here :) Beginner. Are there any exercises/stretches to do with the body before and/or after playing to take care of the body as we are still learning to stay relaxed as we play? Stretches for shoulder, wrists, fingers, neck etc... that are regular practices that some violinist use to keep the body healthy and loose? Thanx!

I would like to know something about counterbody movements in violin playing. Is it helpful, is it a natural movement? Do you teach it? (I am always fascinated watching people eating. The move the hand to the mounth and most of them also move the body towards the hand...)

How do you view sounding points? Are they something just used for volume and necessity, or are they truly artistic tools for varied effect--or perhaps something else to you.

As in math, there is an order of operations that can help with coordination: articulation, then bow. articulation, the placement of the fingers, bow, self explanatory. As with sight reading, it also helps to think ahead as you advance and prepare to place your fingers a few notes ahead at minimum, and if a difficult passage, a couple measures ahead. When working with etudes, breathing also becomes important, and as Mimi Zweig nearly sermonizes: relax, relax, relax. Play the etudes slowly, until you can incorporate all this, and it 'should' help.
