Holding The Violin Series 1: Keeping the Grip

I have been struggling for weeks and weeks with my left hand because I am so afraid of doing the infamous death grip that violin teachers are constantly warning their students about.  Beth was able to point out my fear that has lead to my over-compensation in gripping the violin when she watched my Twinkle Twinkle variation video.  I was holding the neck of the violin by placing my thumb almost beneath the neck, and my pointing finger was in no contact whatsoever with the violin.

If you are struggling with the violin grip as I am, then watch this video bellow by Allison on how one should think and go about their violin grip
