"Speeding Up Vibrato"

The article discusses how the faster vibrato is, the narrower it must be. The author then goes on to explain the difference between hand and arm vibrato, hand vibrato is generated from the wrist and arm vibrato comes from the elbow. It is then said that vibrato should be sped up by using a metronome and playing multiple rhythms. The last section of the article states that many students start vibrato by tightening the arm, but this should not be the case. The student should start in a relaxed state and gradually add muscle.

good abstract, though the end was rather abrupt.

It told exactly what the article was about, but it was a little dry.
