Matching Harmonics – Close Up

Matching Harmonics – Close Up

"Match the bottom harmonic with the top harmonic. Try with the 3rd finger. Try with the 3rd finger on C#."

Begin to add specific landing points to the free-form Sirens exercise.

Keep the bow speed constant and leave the left thumb at the throat in the highest position to help with the downward shift. Keep the violin balanced and your left shoulder free.

I was first shown this exercise by Sheila Nelson in London, UK.
