My first video post. 

I have been practicing for almost five months, two months with ViolinLab. Sorry for the violin mute (living in an apartment) and also for the bad lighting.

Thanks for watching it! Suggestions and critics are very welcome.

Thank you so much Beth for posting the video response, it sure helped a lot.

I am applying the suggestions you gave me and I am watching the videos you mentioned. I see exactly what you mean and I will work on those issues. I will show you improvement in my next video.

Please keep up your excellent job.

Thank you both very much for your nice words 😊 That was very encouraging.

I did not realize my right hand did not show up that much Elke. I will try to produce a better video next time. I pay attention to my bow hand as much as I can to make sure it is relaxed and in a good shape, but I feel like I should curve the wrist some more when playing closed to the frog.

Beth, I have no piano experience, but I had some guitar classes when I was much younger. I am glad that it somehow helps me years later. I am looking forward to your video response.

Great left hand!  Looks like you may have some piano or guitar experience?  I'll be making response videos on Monday. All the new "posters" will receive a video response.

Congratulations, Claudio, to a first video :). Your intonation was very good, your sounding point was rather consistent, the fingers of your left hand did not flop around, but you kept them in a nice hand shape - so I don't really know what to say apart from that it sounded good. I could not see much of your bow hand, so cannot comment on it.
