Sirens – An Exercise in Harmonics

Sirens – An Exercise in Harmonics

Andrea Keeble plays her personal warmup routine, where all fingered notes are harmonics. Her aim is to maintain the left-hand frame throughout the position changes (first to fourth positions).

Andrea also focuses on:
- left arm movement under and around the violin
- fingerfall action (lifting and dropping the fingers from the base knuckles)

"Sirens" has a musical quality which helps focus the mind at the beginning of your practice session. You can develop a warmup routine that suits your needs.
