This, the second in the newly-launched ‘With Nicky’ series, violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti takes us through the importance of developing your own sound.
“Developing and producing sound on your instrument is an internal journey inside your mind and inside your hearing …” the Scottish-born soloist has said.
“To really create a sound you love and are comfortable with, you need plenty of space and peace in your practice ... take things slowly, don’t put pressure on yourself - and take the time to hear and feel things clearly …” she has said.
“The route we each take to developing our own sound is a voyage of experimentation and discovery ... rewarding, completely engrossing, and of course it can also be frustrating at times!”
As an official media partner, The Violin Channel will be publishing a new video in the With Nicky series each Tuesday.
