Bow Control & Tone Creation (Simon interviews Zlata)

by | Apr 18, 2018 | 4 comments

Simon Streuff interviews me about bowing technique and tone production

It matters more HOW you play than WHAT you play

Violin players are so focussed on hitting the right notes in the right rhythm, while what really matters is the sound you create, the emotions you express and the story you tell

In this interview I give you some practical tips and exercises on how to improve your bow control with just 5 to 10 minutes of practice a day. It’s suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced players.

Simon is a performing violinist in Germany with a busy teaching studio and a successful YouTube channel. I interviewed him some time ago about playing in tune (click here to watch).

What was the biggest insight you gained from this interview? What will you do differently the next time you practice? Share it in the comments below:
