Lam asks:

I have seen many soloists like Silvia Marcovici who has a wide vibrato and Hilary Hahn who has a much narrower vibrato. Please make a video on whether to have a wide or narrow vibrato.

Why do you see different kinds of vibrato with different violinists and different pieces?

When to use what kind of vibrato? Narrow, wide, fast, slow?

How to train yourself to be able to do all these types of vibrato and apply them exactly on the right moment?

Watch this video and I will give you some tips and exercises.
