The Bow Arm Journey from Pre-twinkle to Book 10 and Beyond: Viola, Violin

Instructor: Cathryn Lee

CLASS IS FULL Teachers, bring your violin or viola and prepare to meet the Panda! Beginning with the simplest games and exercises for the pre-twinkler, we will take our bow arms on a life-long journey towards the most advanced bowing techniques in the violin literature. Experience the “magic” as we bend our knees and circle, tick-tock land and stop, and jellyfish our way from staccato to sautillé.
Comments from previous class participants:
“I was amazed at how Mrs. Lee’s classes improved my own playing, not to mention my teaching.” “Playing advanced repertoire has never felt this easy before. It’s like using the bow is almost effortless.” “Cathy Lee is The Queen of The Bow!”
