Abstract

This research investigates the potential for vibrotactile feedback to enhance motor learning in the context of playing the violin. A prototype has been built which delivers vibrotactile feedback to the arms to indicate to a novice player how to correctly hold the violin and how to bow in a straight manner. This prototype was tested in a pilot user study with four complete beginners. Observations showed improvements in three of the four players whilst receiving the feedback. We also discuss the pros and cons of using negative feedback to enhance learning. © 2010 Copyright is held by the author/owner(s).
