Sometimes I get really tense when I play the violin, and I don't know how to fix it. My hand has gotten so tense that my teacher tells me that I have ruined my vibrato which used to be great. He also says that the tension might be caused by the emotion I put in my playing. I've tried so many exercises but I can't seem to find something that will be effective for releasing tension. BTW, the tip of my ring finger tends to get numb after prolonged hours of playing.
