String Pedagogy Techniques by Professor Joanne Erwin

  1. Observe the use of the strumming of the left hand little finger to stabilize the

    instrument placement and loose elevation of the left arm movement. This also

    strengthens the little finger of the left hand.

  2. In this video you will see the bow holds from the front and back as the players
