Focusing on bow control, this book has exercises that help your brain tell your right hand exactly what to do to make the sound you want.

Open String Bow Workouts for Cello, Book Three

Sample Page from the Book

In this sample page from the book, your right arm is trained to play at the tip of the bow. Most of the time, we tend to be “frog-focused” and only rarely travel to the tip.

However, it’s important to be comfortable playing everywhere on the bow and working on an exercise that is “tip-focused” can help you feel more comfortable there.

​Some of my other favorite parts in the book work on bow starts and bow landings. When I was an intermediate student, nobody worked with me on smooth starts and building enough bow control to land on the string cleanly. Instead, my teacher simply told me to work on tone.

Needless to say, it wasn’t until I came across the great Simon Fischer book “Basics” as an adult that I realized that all of the motions that give us good bow control can be taught. I’m exceedingly grateful for his contribution to string study!

A series of Open String books for developing better bowing

When I edited the first book of Open String Bow Workouts, I was excited to hear a difference in my tone and feel a difference in my handling of the bow.

Your comments and support for the books have been much appreciated and have given me inspiration to continue to write more bow training exercises for open strings. This is the third book in the series (so far!)
