I love this new Youtube video of Hillary Hahn. She's just a wonder. I got a kick out of the fact that she has to hack her shoulder rest like I do. She uses duck tape, I use rubber bands. That's about all we have in common :)

Thanks for the sweet comments, ya'll!
I learn from Hilary that humans apparently can play perfectly in tune. I'm going to keep trying to do that :)

I like that she so obviously enjoys playing and performing. It really adds to the beauty of her music.  And nice dress!  The duct tape doesn't detract at all!  ;)

Here is one category you do not share with HH.  You offered one conceptual thought during a vibrato video that hit the nail on the head and changed everything.  HH  never did that for me.  She is wonderful to listen to, but you contribute to the joy in my life. Thank you for your passion of giving.

Thanks for posting the video featuring Hilary Hahn.  Hilary Hahn also has a running 1 minute video series on Instagram.  The focus is on practicing.  Check out#violincase
