Today's Tip
A violin should be bowed perpendicular to the strings and parallel to the bridge in a straight line.  Do not scrub the bow up and down the strings.  A good way for a parent to coach this skill is to place your hand in a location that a perfectly drawn bow will tap your hand at the end of a down bow or up bow.  Provide a target for the student, but don't allow the student to look at the target.  After ten or twenty perfect down or up bows give the student a reward, then start again.  Aim for three perfect sets.
