Do you know there are 4 ways to play soft and loud on the violin or viola?
How and when to use them, so you can use dynamics in every way you like and find most suitable for the piece you are playing?
1) Amount of bow (lots or a little)
2) weight of your arm
3) place on the string
4) amount of bow hair you use
