So I have been commenting on my alternate arm and wrist practice.
I did a short video to demonstrate how it is going.

looking forward for observations, comments and suggesitons.

Thanks Beth.

The first part of the video was intended to demonstrate purely the arm vibrato practice.
And the second part when I got more rhythmic it was the wrist. But watching it again after your observation, I do see it is all mixed up in a certain way.
I do practice with your training videos, but do get tempted to go up to first position too and try out with the bow. I guess should back down a bit.

Hi Shaheen, I see variability in the way your arm is approaching making the vibrato motion. I think this is what you're referring to. SOmewimtes, the wrist moves, sometimes the arm. I even see sometimes the fingers themselves get too involved. Have you see my new sequence of training videos on the Resource page? If you have, are you amenable to working with them? I think they are going to be extremely helpful to train the right motion. If you prefer to use arm vibrato, you can adapt them like Elke is doing. But you can still do the exercises along with the videos to ensure you're building the skills in the correct way and in a logical sequence.
