Holding the Bow
Okay, you've mastered holding the cello- now, it's time to hold the bow!
1. Spread out your right hand (which is your bow hand) and lay the bow in between the two knuckle lines on the inside of your hand, with the bow hair pointed away from you.
2. Put your pinky on the circle on the frog, keeping those fingers spread out and letting them touch the bow. Bring in your thumb and keep it bumpy!
3. Turn your hand over, holding onto the middle of the bow with your left hand, and check out your bow hold! Is your thumb bumpy? Are your fingers laying on the bow, nice and long?
4. Do some bow exercises! Circles, stir the pot, and windshield wipers!
