Moving left arm
There should be a straight line from your elbow to your fingers.
The fingers should hang at the freeboard. When you get on to the E-string there should be a small distance between the index finger and the fret board. (On the other strings there is no distance)
Notice the thumb position. As mentioned the thumb is curved. You do not hold the violin with the hand, the violin is held with your cheek.
