Question regarding vibrato

May 24, 2021, 3:54 PM · Hi,
So I have been playing the violin for two years and and I just started learned vibrato. I have a list of exercises. However, I am confused regarding one thing. When doing wrist vibrato, do you move your wrists back and fourth and just keep that first joint of the fingers loose and let it move passively along the wrist's movement. Or do you move both the wrist and the first joint actively simultaneously. I might be overthinking it, but I hope I can get something to clear this confusion.
Thank you :)
