I'm having trouble learning vibrato... playing fast... sustaining my tone... creating a strong melodic line... keeping my scales in tune... maintaining intonation while playing arpeggios. What can I do?
Jeannette Hoyt specializes in assessing each student's physical playing properties and musculo-skeletal structure and then tailoring a practice plan that specifically evaluates body strengths and weaknesses while optimizing present abilities. Often, difficulties proceeding to the the next technique level can be addressed by carefully watching how the student is holding the instrument, holding the bow, standing while playing, breathing (or not) while performing. When these challenges are met, everything flows better!
