I demonstrate several types of orchestra mutes for violin and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each.
This episode is specifically about orchestra mutes to play con sordino in an orchestra.
In this video I show you several ways to adjust your shoulder rest, so it matches the shape of your body and fits like a glove.
