Excerpt from technical paper on note/pitch production and recognition.  It ain't just good aim.

Yeah.  It's the "audiation" part that bothers me.

If I knew how the music was supposed to sound before I played it, that would spoil the surprise !

Oliver, you must love driving fast around winding roads, lol.

I wish I knew what all of that meant, because it sounds insightful and sublime, but I don't get it.duncecap

It's not that bad .......

The man said........it is best to know how a note should sound so that there can be an accurate judgement, or correction, as needed ( i.e. mental vs. emitted pitch ). 

"Kinaesthetic", I believe is all the motor skills needed to play a violin.   (My personal guess is that violin playing is 60% acrobatic)

One very respected guru and teacher has his students learn their important pieces BEFORE ever attempting the piece on a violin !!  That, I think, is "audiation".

Of course, the accuracy of mental vs. emitted pitch defines important talent for a violin player ( see also FM intonation game ).

One does not have to understand any of this to play but the violin itself has rules and takes no prisoners.
