My teacher says I sound immature and childish when I do not use vibrato. However, when I use vibrato, she says I play very beautifully.
I mean, I see the compliment in there somewhere, but a dark cloud of negativity also looms in that statement.
What are thoughts? Does vibrato add a flair of maturity to playing? If a person is really good, should they sound excellent even without vibrato?
Let me know.
