How to Use the Bow
 

Emerald shows you how to hold and move the bow in this video. She starts by showing you a “paintbrush” exercise to demonstrate how to move your bow arm without the bow. She talks about the parts and mechanism of the bow, how much to tighten it , etc; and explains where to place your fingers on the bow, starting with your thumb. Then Emerald shows you where to place the bow on the strings, how to move your bow arm so the bow stays parallel to the bridge, how much pressure to use, etc.
