I'm a bit confused about intonation. What exactly is intonation? I wikipedia it, and it says it's the players ability to recognize pitch accuracy.
I used to play the piano, so I never really came across this term, so please forgive my ignorance. I read on the discussion board that alot of people have alot of problem with intonation. Does this mean you're playing on the wrong tone and not realize it? I'm a bit confused if that's the case, how is that possible??
I'm an absolute beginner in violin, so maybe I'm getting this all wrong. My trouble is, my finger doesn't press down onto the correct position, and I'm out of tune, but I can hear it and therefore move my fingers position accordingly to adjust it, is this what people mean by working on their intonation?
