Achieving an Artistic Vibrato in the String Class

  • thumbnail for Rebecca MacLeod
  • Vibrato has been identified as an essential component in creating an expressive and musical performance on string instruments. This session will review pedagogical literature and compare various approaches to obtaining a beautiful vibrato. Video clips of artist-level performers in real time and slow motion will be presented to clearly outline the component motions of a beautiful vibrato. Practical applications for intermediate and advanced orchestras will be discussed.
