How to Make Your Bow Hold More Flexible and Bow Like a Pro?

September 6, 2013 at 11:47 AM

Violin Lounge TV Q&A about getting a more flexible bow hold:

Hi Ziata I was wondering if you have any advice for wrist and finger flexibility when playing with regards to bow hold as my fingers and wrist are relatively static when bowing. Thank you kind? regards Rajeeve New Zealand. P..S also any exercises you recommend. Thank you

Just if you didn't know: A bow hold is NOT rigid, it's flexible! You can better name it bow movement instead of bow hold.

So... how can you get a flexible bow hold and start bowing like pro?

Watch this video to find some tips I share with you.
