I've been playing the violin for six months already and I feel a bit awkward when I practice, or even perform. I have this habit to stare where I'm fingering when I play. When I do this, I feel quite limited to look and keep track on where I am in the sheet music, since I'm almost always looking at my left hand. I'm wondering if it's normal to this, looking at my fingerings. If so, should I glance occasionally to make sure my fingers are in the right position? Should I try to practice without looking at my fingerings more often?
