Pizzicato with bowing motion

In this game, the student places the right hand thumb against the fingerboard, plucks the string with the index finger, and follows through with a full elliptical bowing motion. Rolland called this game “flying pizzicato.” The purpose of the game is to begin developing flexibility and the awareness of the body motions involved in bowing. Note the placement of the thumb when playing pizzicato.
