I'm glad you posted this.

She has a fantastic technique. Notice how balanced her violin is over her collarbone so she doesn't need to grip it. She is extremely relaxed when playing. Her right hand is relaxed, she draws the bow nice and straight. Her left hand fingers are nicely curved. Great example of taking advantage of optimal technique. I imagine she can play all day and not get tired or hurt herself.

Her intonation is great too.exactly

How relax she plays is the thing that amazed me more then her nice playing! I tried playing with the violin balanced on collarbone also but it just hurts I dunno why.

You might need padding. Remember not to squeeze.

I hope to play that effortlessly by the time I'm 65!!!!  Can you imagine (well actually I'm sure some of you can, because you're already there) how wonderful it would be to "own" the violin like this young lady does!

(sigh) oh well, next life,,, I'm going to make a point of starting earlier, lmao!
