Upbow and downbow staccato

January 2, 2018, 6:26 AM · Hello everyone!I have some difficulties with staccato in general.Currently,i am playing Polonaise D-major Wieniawski,and there is that one passage with 3rds in witch my staccato strugles.Also i try to do whole scales with staccato,but down-bow just sounds weak.Any advice for this kind of problem?


January 2, 2018 at 05:20 PM · Hi. I'd post this in the discussion board for more responses. Thanks. Have you asked your teacher for advice if you have one?

January 2, 2018 at 09:36 PM · Yes I have and she said that it will come with time.I am currently having a bit of a stiff wrist,and i am trying to fix that with etudes,it is getting better,but not with my staccato.If you have any good etudes for relaxing the right hand,that would come in handy also.

January 3, 2018 at 02:49 AM · Since this is not a blog, it should go on the discussion board. Thanks.
