Tips for Double Stop Fifths for Cellists from Cellists Themselves

Image
Here are some streamlined tips for cellists practicing double stops in fifths: Tune by Ear : Regularly tune your strings by ear, playing two at a time. This hones your ability to hit two strings simultaneously and is crucial for accurate double-stops. Visualization : Imagine the strings and bow interaction visually. This method can be particularly effective for many students. Daily Practice : Begin sessions with open string double stops and slow bows. Use a metronome set to 8th note = 140-150, playing 8 beats per bow in each direction. Progress from G+C, to D+G, then A+D strings. Bow Plane Mastery : Ensure you have control over the bow’s plane; any wandering is more noticeable when playing two strings. Play Softly : Aim for piano rather than mezzoforte or forte to avoid pressing too hard and creating a harsh sound. Account for String Height : Each double stop will have different string heights due to finger placement. Adjust accordingly, especially when using the fourth finger. Bow Tec

Bow Hold for String Players with video #suzuki_school

The bow holds for violin, viola, cello, and double bass are tailored to the size and playing position of each instrument. Here’s a brief overview: Violin & Viola : The bow hold is quite similar for both instruments. The thumb is bent and placed on the frog (the end part of the bow where you hold it), and the other fingers are curved and placed at specific points on the stick. The pinky finger is curved and rests on the top of the stick to help control the bow. Cello : The cello bow hold is similar to the violin and viola but adjusted for the larger size of the bow and the different angle of playing. The thumb is placed opposite the second finger, and the fingers are more spread out along the stick. The hand is also more under the stick than with the violin and viola. Double Bass : The double bass bow hold is quite different due to the size and playing style of the instrument. There are two main types of bow holds for the double bass: the French bow hold and the German bow hold. The

How to practice and perfect your scales for string instruments

Image
Use strong and articulated fingers  for better precision and intonation . Train your ears  to hear the correct notes and fix the wrong ones . Anticipate the next note  with your left hand and brain . Make  quick, light, and smooth shiftings  or position changes . Use  equal and precise bow distribution , regardless of the tempo . Play scales musically , as if they were pieces of repertoire . Warm-up with scales  before starting your practice . Practice consistently and regularly , even if it’s only 15 minutes a day . Set realistic goals  and talk to your teacher about your progress . Take breaks  and avoid frustration . Find a  good teacher or coach  who can guide you and keep you accountable . Also, consider practicing scale cycle exercises that cover 2 octaves and up to 3 sharps & flats .  This will help you understand note relationships, improve your intonation, and build finger strength and dexterity . Remember, the key to mastering scales is consistent practice and patience. H
