FILM #11: DEVELOPING FLEXIBILITY (book chapter 14)
OVERVIEW: Grade school and junior high students demonstrate exercises for the development of flexible bowing and “follow through” motions between bow strokes and after releases.
1. Flexible versus stiff bowing movements
2. Exercises for developing flexible bowings
3. In a sequential action, the movement starts in the large joints and progresses to the smaller ones; follow-through movements
4. Push and pull the bow against resistance from the left hand to develop good sustained tones; rounded movements and flexibility in string crossings
