Hello all! Long time no write!
I have finally landed a position in a school this year, teaching two classes of chorus and one class of orchestra. It has been fun but also very challenging at times. My orchestra class is a mixed group of advanced and beginners, with some having several years experience and others having no experience. As we are about to take our Christmas Break (yes, I said Christmas.) I was writing some plans and looking at music for next semester and realized that I couldn’t remember what some of the bowings were called! It has been a while since my violin lesson days and I can’t remember all the names of everything we learned, so I looked it up. Here is a link to a website with slideshows of different bow markings and a basic summary of what they mean and how to play them. There are several slide shows in the series, so once you get to the end of one push the “next” button (as if you were advancing the slides) and the next slide show in sequence will start loading. Hope this helps!
