Some Nice Bow Work!

Here is one of my little students perfecting his bow distribution on Oh Come Little Children. Conquering the bow on this song is a huge achievement for a young player! He almost has it nailed - just one missing string crossing at the end of the song.

I like to start students on just the E string so they can focus all their attention on correct distribution, speed and location on the bow. Then on the repeat we add in the string crossings so it’s exactly as it will be played when the left hand is added.
