    Can you post a picture of your bow hold? Your wrist shouldn't hurt.

    I think it would be great in an ensemble like this:

    Interesting cello or no?

    I thought it was. Just a variation on the theme. But...maybe not as "toneful" as flamed maple?

    How to Identify Between Tiredness and Injury

    I found it an odd word choice too, when I first heard it - because it does have a mild, negative connotation. But it seems to be part of the music world's jargon, so I just go with it. However - a violin pedagogue seems to refer more to someone who has developed a teaching method versus "just" teaching. Others may debate that interpretation. So Auer, Suzuki, etc. are pedagogues. If I teach, I consider myself "just" a teacher, or instructor - since I don't follow a defined "method" per se.

    How to Identify Between Tiredness and Injury

    High school? University? Older adult? Goal? I think of myself as a violin student too - but obviously we are different people with different end goals.

    Why? What are your goals? Are you a violin student? Are you wanting to be a professional? Where are you at now?
