violin lessons #4 - bowing the strings

Aim to bow the strings midway between the bridge and the fingerboard. All the bowing comes from arm movement from the elbow, not the shoulder.
violin bow technique

There are several ways to practice this and form a good habit: standing with your back to the wall; practising by a mirror. If you often saw wood (I do!) this is DIFFERENT!!

It is advisable to persevere with this exercise until it has formed good habits.

    My word,it appears that though it is 3/7/16 12:02 p.m. here at Kensington on Trent you have already reached Tuesday in Bude. Please share your secret of time travel. Good day.

  2. #timetravel works best in #dreams - fine violin music in the background will probably help :)
