  • Proper bowing technique is crucial for a healthy tone. Unfortunately the physical actions required for good bowing technique are often difficult for novice string players to fully comprehend. Laux will demonstrate how the complexities of right hand technique can be simplified and reimagined so students can learn play with greater confidence and with a big, beautiful sound. Bring your instrument!
