About “Fundamentals of Bowing: Resonance and Movement”
Sound is arguably the defining feature of string playing. A beautiful sound is reliant upon optimal resonance while skilful bow strokes create music character. This discussion looks at the physics of sound production and the physical movements needed to develop supple bow technique.
