Beth, Do you have any advise on how to have a nice up-bow staccato? I'm working on "Country Dance" (Suzuki Book 5) and am struggling with the up-bow staccatos, mostly in that I get a tiny down-bow rebound sound on each note. Is the up-bow staccato more reliant on wrist motion or should I focus on downward bow pressure (or both?). Any tips would be so helpful. Thanks!

A video response would be so helpful! I look forward to it. Also, I guess I'm fuzzy on the difference between staccato and spiccato, I'll look around online and ask my teacher about the differences. Thanks so much for your help! - Jean
