Independence Exercise 1

Independence Exercise 1

Set up the hand frame from the 3rd finger and then practise tapping the 1st finger to encourage the independence of that finger. Also try using the 2nd finger since developing independence and release in both these fingers is important in developing a balanced hand frame.

Add the bow to monitor not only intonation (each finger-fall should go down in the same place!) but the clarity of articulation.
