Technique Notes:

 

  1. Fast Playing -

    1. Up and over to allow the fingers to really get down on the string

    2. Looser fingers to free them to move quickly (Not completely relaxed)

    3. Smaller bows the faster the tempo

    4. Moving less from your shoulder and focusing on elbow and wrist

  2. 4th FINGER!! - Really push it down hard AT ALL TIMES!

    If you are doing it well it WILL RING OUT when doing pizziccato!

    Don't push too hard on the bow! Focus on balance of tone.
