Double stop exercise to avoid hitting other strings on the violin

Yes, it sounds contradictory, because two strings wasn’t what you had in mind, right?

The thing is when you hit other strings on the violin accidentally you’re probably wobbling with your bow. The angle of your upper arm isn’t consistent throughout the bow stroke.

While we have some ‘wobble space’ playing on one string, in a double stop (bowing on two strings at the same time) you have to be really precise to hear both strings sound equally loud. This will train your upper arm to remain in one position and you train this for every string position.

Give it a try and let me know in the comments if it’s helpful!
