Left hand pizzicato
I start each practice session with left hand pizzicato. It’s a great way to train the weaker part of your hand: the third and fourth finger. Also it gives me a great left hand posture with nicely arched fingers.
Drone scales are great for practicing intonation, because you know instantly if you’re even a little bit out of tune. It’s possible on all levels and I show you some examples for each level in the video.

No 1 mistake in practicing violin
What holds back a lot of violin players in their progress and leaves them frustrated is that they practice repertoire that’s too difficult for you.
Practice scales and exercises that are too difficult for you and stretch you to a higher level. Play pieces that feel nice and easy, so you can focus on musical expression.
Stretches are also great for intonation and for letting difficult things on the violin feel easy.
Thirds are hard on the violin! Practice them for a great hand frame, solid intonation and strong fingers.
