Keeping the violin still
I am looking for advice on how to keep the violin still while playing. I took a video of myself and noticed that the scroll was moving quite a bit. When I have practiced playing with the scroll set against the wall, I've noticed an improvement right away in terms of tone and volume. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
The first things you need to decide are (1) under what circumstances does your scroll move up? or down? or left or right? and (2) why do you care?
Your violin is basically vertical. Holy cow. I like to keep my violin at an angle too, but you take it to the next level, man.
I'm confused--the video you posted shows very little movement of your scroll. If that's representative of your concern, please stop worrying. You are well within the norms of playing--in fact, on the continuum from statue to Lindsey Stirling, you are much closer to the statue end.
