In today’s lesson, following up on a Skype Lesson I had earlier with Emily Wright, we totally took apart my bow stroke. The emphasis was on making sure every part of the stroke was relaxed. We had to stop and reset several times, since my naughty shoulder was acting up.

My first priority is to sit up properly, and I suspect some help needs to be given to my Ikea(R) Stefan Chair to assist my posture.

I’m going to continue studying my pieces.but from the point of view of making them exercises for my bow arm.

Step through and reset frequently, always looking for the bowing that minimizes total energy.
