Open String Bow Workouts for Violin, Book One - PDF Download
Improve Your Violin Bowing and Tone!
One great thing to add to the beginning of your violin practice (at any level of playing!) is a short study on open strings.
Playing open-string studies on the violin can help you focus on your bow and how it interacts with the string. Good bow technique is essential for creating beautiful sound.
This book of new and exciting bowing workouts for the violin gives you 97 exercises to train your bow on open strings before you begin the rest of your practice.
Since there are no left-hand notes, you can focus entirely on improving the dexterity and control of the right (bow) hand.
Useful also for students who are struggling with reading notes, this book gives violinists a tremendous resource for creating better tone.
The exercises work on bow distribution, rests and retaking bows, slurs, triplets, dotted rhythms, double stops, string crossing, and more.
Note: The main focus of this book is achieving a steady, even, smooth tone. Dynamics, staccato, spiccato, and other articulated bowings are covered in Book Two.
Note: this is a PDF download of the book; not a print book. This book can be saved to your computer and printed.
