a gym for the left hand
So maybe everyone already knows about this book, but I've just discovered the "Schradieck School of Violin Technics - Book 1," pages 1 and 2 (i.e. the first exercise) and I'm finding it FANTASTIC. It's like a gym for the left hand! Sort of like the tapping exercises, but with added music-reading, rhythm, bowing and intonation thrown in. A professional violinist I was talking to recently told me that people use those two pages to warm up for years. I've been playing it every day since and it is making a real difference, especially to my fourth finger. Just passing that on in case it might help!

Reaching the tip of the bow
Hi Everyone,

I have been working on using more of the bow. I have a hard time keeping the bow straight and reaching the tip. I thought that if I move my chin rest to the right side of the bottom of the violin rather that keeping it on the left, it would be easier for me. have any of you had success reaching the tip that way?

Great 'new' videos, Beth, on String Crossings and Bow Tilt.  Learnt that the amount of bow hair, on the string, and bow tilt are the same thing.  Looking forward to the further videos on both topics.

Trying something new and am challenged when I play the same note over and over with different rhythms. Suggestions welcome trying to relax more. Thanks for listening. I can only imagine what this could sound like with improvising and I put Bowings (Beth’s training-although I do often rethink them but try down on the beat)in which did help some. Maybe need to go back to phrase by phrase.
