Bow technique and sound production are central to the art of violin playing. Expressive performance originates from the bow. The sounding interpretation of musical structure and the aesthetic features of a performance are dependent on a thoughtful use of the bow.
Nevertheless, much talk and analysis of the bow and bow technique occurs in purely mechanical terms without regard for an artistic use of the bow. This seminar explores some fundamental ideas about bowing and bow technique to promote efficient and effective foundations of sound production. We concentrate on simple and effective practice methods to develop performance.
