    What's the difference between a saxophone and a chainsaw?

    Oh, and you can tune up a chainsaw.

    For some, I'd say yes.

    A video camera is a great tool. I already knew I used too much vibrato; when I see videos of myself playing I can see all sorts of idiosyncrasies. Also, the vibrato will sound much better if it is "tuned" to the room. A small room will have a faster "sweet" spot than a larger room. You'll hear it best in a cathedral. Most players probably don't even know they are doing this.

    Get really nervous before you play and you have built in vibrato! Actually what most have said is key. Know when and how little to use. If it sounds forced then I grant you it won't sound good.

    There are many styles of vibrato as there are many styles of music. Listen to many examples of vibrato and try to emulate them at first. In most cases vibrato should be only used in solo passages. Rate of pulse is directly related to tempo of music in most cases.
    Finally it should come from your soul as an extension of singing style not a contrived notion.

    I know the violin section will vibrato in unison do brass sections do that or no?
