Bow Hold Spider Crawl Exercise
This is a fun exercise to help develop your bow finger independence, dexterity, and strength--all of which will lead to improved tone and maneuverability of the bow.
I finally decided to take the leap to improve on my violin technique/skills/playing, which had come to a standstill after trying to figure the instrument out by myself. I knew I needed guidance and correction in many areas, which after the very first lesson with Jennifer, I knew I had made a very wise decision. Lessons with Jennifer is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. She is very patient, kind and easy to understand. I have high hopes now that one day, I’ll be able to play the violin and actually enjoy the music I make on it instead of cringe, lol. I highly recommend her!
My daughter started online lessons with Jennifer at the beginning of the pandemic. After a year and a half of lessons my daughter said she could sight read music like reading a book and her musical ability had greatly improved. We did choose to eventually find in person classes, at Jennifer’s suggestion, as she felt that is the best way to learn. My daughter still misses Jennifer and her teaching style almost a year later.
At age 55 I started lessons with Jenny and immediately she was able to focus my practice on areas I really need to improve upon. I had only been playing violin for a year with very limited exposure to music way back in high school on a marching band drumline. She is very patient and understanding of the time challenges of working adults trying to lean a new skill. Moving from a H.S. drumline to violin is pretty much a quantum leap in understanding of music theory and execution, but Jenny broke down the process and was able to bring me to a level where I could perform confidently in front of audiences and gave me a whole new appreciation of music. She is dedicated, t
