My son's bow goes diagnal if he is not paying attention. Mainly because he moves his upper arm side ways especially in the fast passages. His teacher told me to touch his elbow when he starts to move it side way, but he gets very irritated when I do that. Is there any other way that you can suggest to correct this? He is also a lefty. Does this make it harder for him to fix it? I tried to imitate a bow stroke with my left hand to feel what he is feeling. It is pretty hard, I think, for left handed people to have a good control on their bow arm. So if you are a lefty I would like your comments, too!
