Several of my students want to twist their backs when they play. The bow shoulder comes forward and the left shoulder pulls back. I try to get them to pull the left elbow up and forward, tilt the cello, and show them how they can bow the A string without reaching. But still…

What do you do to correct this? Thanks for any suggestions.
