Great playing for sure. but something that strikes me is how he has that viola on his chest and uses his chin to hold it. Notice all the tension in his mouth that he could easily avoid.

I see potential neck pains in the future for him. Have worked with pro's with similar problems before.

Sorry for pointing out the negative but I just want people to be cautious because I know what can and does happen.

Thank you for pointing that out.  I knew it looked strange, the way he was holding the viola.  Do you think this might be due to the extra length and weight of a viola compared to a violin?

 

what is 10+3 I don't have my calculator with me.
