Focus on using your elbow only, keeping a straight bow, and always....Llama, Llama, Llama.

3 ways to make a great sound:
Bow Weight (Index Finger controls it)
Bow Speed
Bow Location (Lane 3)

We have been learning how to identify notes on the D & A string. Continue to work on these skills in your Sound Innovation Book, Exercises # 2 - 18. 

Before you start check the following:

  • Playing Position
  • Stop sign/fuzzy
  • Fingers floating above the string when not in use
When playing say:
  • Note names
  • Finger numbers
  • Counting, say rests & pizza
