At my violin lesson last night, my teacher told me to "play with feeling", and "feel the music". As an adult beginner, my mind is FULL of what I need to be doing(relax the hand, play on the tips of my fingers, dont play the "narp", good bow grip, read the music, (insert sight reading stress right here) read ahead, play in time...oh the list is endless!)Anyway, she had my forget everything for the minute and close my eyes, hear the first line in my head and play it, and I sort of "felt it", I mean it sounded better then usual, but how do I incorporate this into my playing all the time? I dont want to play like a robot, I want to make people want to dance to my music. Any help/suggestions would be awesome. Thank you :)
