Violin Finger Weight - How do you press your finger on the violin string? - Violin Basics with Eric


Violin finger weight is different than finger 'pressure'. I never want to encourage words like 'pressing' or 'squeezing' because it can imply that there is tension while playing the violin. In this video, I'll be talking about how to use the natural weight of your arm to put your finger on the string. This will give you an organic sound that you're proud of.

Eric Mrugala is from Chicago, IL and started playing the violin at the age of three. He is an active performer and teacher based Massachusetts. Eric is dedicated to erasing lines between audiences and music through performance, and education.
