Another video and quick bomb through of some scales ive been working on.
Good for you for being brave enough to show a video of yourself playing. You sounded just fine.
The bow grip looks lots better already. I noticed your thumb is still locked straight while you're playing. This will create tension in your hand and limit your flexibility. The thumb doesn't really grip the bow, it is just used to balance the bow. I'm sure you'll get it with practice.
Once again, way to go for posting a video. You're doing great!
Here goes. Congratulations on your improvement.
Left hand, I didn't see your left hand much nut when I did I saw your wrist bent and the neck laying in your palm and the body of the violin touching the heal of your hand. Try to keep your wrist straight and not supporting the violin with your hand. You will learn to hold the violin without using your hands. With the way your left hand is now you will not be able to shift positions. That will come later on.
Your right hand is doing great as for your grip, you are getting right. When you are bowing your wrist is still and your entire arm is moving. Bow with your forearm moving at the elbow and your wrist flexing. This will help to keep the bow straight and steady.
