I'm just wondering about how you hold your violin without a shoulder rest.
I've been playing without a shoulder rest ever since i started because a shoulder rest just doesn't fit me. However, i was taught to hold my violin with my shoulder and chin, which means i have to raise my shoulder.
I read here though that one shouldn't raise his shoulder when playing. So how should i hold my violin? I know you have to balance it correctly but i just cant seem to do it.
Any advise? Thanks! :))
