No 1 Mistake in Smooth Violin Bowing (+ how to fix) | Violin Lounge TV #514
When you’re making all the right movements with your wrist and fingers, but still don’t have the sound you want, here’s how to fix:
You’re looking at your wrist and fingers and they seem to make all the right movements to bow smoothly on the violin, but you still don’t get the sound you desire.
The issue might be that you are indeed making the right movements, but they are not in sync with the movement of the bow. Maybe the movements are too big or too small or maybe the timing isn’t right.
In the video above I give you a simple exercise how to fix this. You hold the bow with the left hand in the angle it is when you’re playing violin and then you move your bow hand up and down the bow.
Let the movement in your wrist and fingers depend on the line of the bow instead of forcing them.
