Violin lesson

Athena still hasn't learnt to play with the bow. Today, the children were taught holding the bow (again) and all children can't seem to get it - and so was I. Seems so easy for the teacher to hold it and I tried it myself, I felt that I was trying to dislocate my elbow.
Athena had some problem holding and doing the wrong way. I tried to move her hand but she's so stiff!!

Somehow I'm getting sick & tired of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star now. It's been playing and playing in my brain day & night. Help! I think I'm going crazy!

*haha* Twinkle will take a few months, won't it? Esp if it's suzuki? there's several variations of twinkle.

My big ds who's doing grade 4 is still having problems with his bowhold after 2 yrs. So yes, it's not easy.

You might find the video on bowgrip on ViolinMasterclass.com useful.
