I'm in the midst of recording some youtube tutorials for effective violin practice, which I call Practice Blitz. Let's face it, practicing can easily become tedious and I find there are never enough ways to look at problem-solving through a different perspective to keep things fresh. These are some playlists from the channel. I tried to demonstrate about 10 ways (more or less!) to practice violin skills. More Blitz videos are coming in the spring of 2018 - double stops, octaves, harmonics etc. So many skills, so little time! I hope this gives you some new ideas and makes digging deep in the practice routine fun. You can find the channel here.
