Incorrect Bow Hold No. 2

 

"Tippy"

This student has placed her finger tips on the stick , but the tip of the
thumb is not on the stick. She will have problems controlling the bow
and the bow stroke will likely be very, very short. Notice in the model
that the first joint of the middle and ring fingers contacts the stick. The index finger contacts between the first and second joints.


The tip of the ring finger should contact the frog near the eye of the frog.
