A recap from Nicola Benedetti’s vibrato video, using the first two bars of Massenet’s Meditation as a vibrato exercise.

‘It’s important to remember that with all exercises, in the end, use your ears – they will tell you exactly how you want to sound and send messages to your hands to do things that then please your ears,’ Benedetti says.

‘So, never switch off when you’re applying a technique to a piece of music, you want your ears to guide what you end up doing.’
