So I started violin lessons as an adult learner five months ago. I pretty much read every thread on v.com concerning vibrato, so I guess pretty much all has been said about that.
My second teacher started me on vibrato exercises two months ago. I practice them religiously every day. There is now only one question left in my mind on this subject.
Are there actual people out there who started on the violin after 40 and got a decent vibrato eventually? I asked my teacher if he knew any, and he was honest enough to tell me no. Mind you, I am not asking about how long it takes, I don't care if it takes five years. Nor am I looking for more tips, I found plenty. I would just really like to hear from somebody over 40 who has actually done it.
