In this episode I teach you how to make fluent bow changes, how to bow smoothly and create a beautiful sound on the violin by a technique I call ‘jellyfish bowing’.
A bow hold can better be called a ‘bow movement’, because to bow smoothly you need to move your wrist and fingers along with the straight movement of the bow.
The movement your hand makes looks a bit like a swimming jellyfish… therefore I call this technique ‘jellyfish bowing’.
How does this work for you? Do you have a rigid bow hold? What changed after jellyfish bowing? Let me know in the comments!
