Vibrato. There are a few ways a player can differentiate themselves from another, vibrato is one of those ways. We can often tell a player immediately by their vibrato. Like any technique this needs to be practiced consciously and with intent. The left hand position is exceptionally important to good vibrato, if it is not controlled your vibrato will be lacking. The most common pitfalls we run into are an uncontrolled uneven pitch, vibrato that is sharp, usually these two go together. Fortunately often being aware of vibrato can put us on the right track to curing any problems we may have. To be a great player you must have great vibrato.
