Hi Beth, 
Here is my version of Austrian Hymn based on your material of  online live class.
Just after a few hours of practice this is the version I decided to upload :) .                           I know there is a lot to improve here , specially the vibrato . I find it still difficult .(between arm and wrist ) is a hard to manage . 

Any suggestions , more then welcome. Thank you .
Laura

Thank you so VERY MUCH , Beth . Your video  does sound very interesting and helpful. I was really  pleased to hear such a suggestion and how it can help me achieve nice vibrato. I will definitely give it a try . ( as I am so desperate to achieve some nice vibrato) . So starting from tomorrow , I will have something excited to work on . 
Once again thanks a million .

Your whole frame looks so elegant - I'm sure that is exactly how a violinist should look!  You look and sound like you completely know what you are doing.  I really hope I can do the same one day!

How absolutely beautiful, Laura! You really have a wonderful tone and intonation! And one can already see what your vibrato will be like in a little bit - very nice! All your hard practice is really paying off! What in inspiration!

Laura, your playing is wonderful! You have a very impressive bow arm. Your long, smooth bow strokes and gorgeous finger motion gives your sound such a singing quality. I'll show you how to practice that wrist vibrato tomorrow.
