This term we have been using our bows properly. Mr Lord has been showing us how to hold it correctly on the right string. To hold our bow we need to put our thumb on the bottom of the bow, curve three fingers around the top of the bow and then finally we put our pinky left on the end of the bow. Most of my class say they have improved the bow hold.
A couple of weeks ago we learnt how to pluck and now we are learning a piece of music called Can Can which has one half plucking and other half has bowing.
My favourite piece of music is Circle Madness but only the slow version because the fast version gets me muddled up!
