This talk will focus on the need for awareness in using arm weight, bow speed and bow division, to move your string section from merely synchronising bow direction, to the artistic use of the bow. It will also discuss the imperative of having bowed parts available from the first rehearsal, and how in even the simplest of string melodies and passages, consideration of bow division and placement is essential to avoid the players becoming “prisoners of the upper half”

Participants are to bring a string instrument
