I am struggling to learn vibrato. I have none at all. I am wondering about the variety of ways in which vibrato develops in violinists. What is your vibrato story? How did you learn vibrato? What types of exercises did you use? How often did you practice vibrato specifically before you learned it? Did you have a vibrato breakthrough where everything just clicked and all of a sudden you had a basic vibrato? Or did it develop gradually and imperceptibly over a long period of time? Did you start with a lot of hand tension and then gradually learn to relax as a part of your vibrato development? Or did you learn to relax and then experience a sudden improvement in your vibrato? How hard did you work on it? How frustrated we're you while learning? We're you worried you would never learn it?
