Dear Zlata,

Can you do a video on how to make a beautiful sautillé?

Sautillé is a bowing technique where the bow leaves the string (jumps) and you can play very fast short notes.

In this video I show you exactly:

  • how you can learn to play sautillé from spiccato

  • step by step in the most effective order

  • how to find the most suitable place on your bow

Is this video useful to you? Please let me know in the comments!
