FREE Violin Lesson #3 for Beginners | SMOOTH BOWING
To get a beautiful tone as a beginner violinist without sounding scratchy, it’s important that your fingers move along with the bow stroke.
Watch this video for some exercises!
The typical beginner sound is caused by a stiff bow hold
By moving your fingers along with the bow stroke, it’s a lot easier to bow straight and get a consistent sound. You can make seamless bow changes and your violin and bow keep resonating.
The result is that you don’t sound scratchy on the violin, but instead make a beautiful full sound.
We often think that beginner violinists have to sound awful for years, but with some deliberate practicing I show in the video, it’s possible to sound good early on.
Dive deeper into this topic with this video lesson on seamless bow changes.
