Starting out in group lessons, and moving into private lessons, I've had to make a few drastic changes with my technique, and my teacher has made some really great suggestions, but I am wondering what you do when you receive two different opinions on technique, such as bow hold, hand position etc. A lot of things my teacher says work wonderfully, but I have received suggestions from other teachers in master classes and one time private lessons, that had different opinions about how I should do a certain technique, and the new way felt a lot more natural and less strained, but my regular private teacher keeps correcting me, and forcing me to the technique she taught me. I don't want to be rude and say that I don't like it that way, and I am not really sure which way is most correct. How do I chose between two different techniques? (sorry I'm a bit rambly )
