I was wondering if there was a way to practice vibrato away from your violin, due to finals and such and then i came across this video(s)...

 Since the mechanics seem to be the same from what i have watched in FM videos along with a few others. In your opinion are the exercises worth a try? Could this help me develop a decent vibrato?

 

next two require a violin but thought i might add anyway

 

 

not sure if it would help or not since i'm fairly new to everything embarassed
so I want some more opinions thumbs-up

Just tried. Seems to be nice. =) At least it helps your brain and muscles to understand the movement itself. Though, i'd recommend to concentrate on doing it with the VIOLIN and the BOW. because one thing is when You do it with one (left) hand and the other - when You do it with both. Coordination... =)

Now, I can't do vibrato yet. I haven't really seriously tried. I've been concentrating on intonation and bowing since starting

Having said that, I think that those videos are great. I've never seen it presented that way. The one without the violin can be done while watching TV and the like to help get the muscles trained for the job.

The other videos are great as well. I think that I may try that method myself. Who knows, I may ever learn vibrato :)

Go for it thumbs-up

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm
