Left Hand Technique – Violin Lessons – Paul Huppert


This particular lesson covers a lot of territory in a minimal amount of time. The idea being to pack as much punch into a 15 minute or so warm-up for the left hand as possible. Linear movement is addressed via shifting exercises, both short distances and longer. Drones are introduced, as well as left hand pizzicato and trilling exercises. About half of these exercises are in the first position, and some more advanced shifting is done up to the fifth position.
