Right hand violin technique is a challenge to both seasoned professionals and students. Particularly during group violin classes, difficulty arises in teaching many children, simultaneously, how to formulate a proper bow hold. If a teacher chooses to incorporate Bow Hold Buddies, a technically strong bow hold may become easily achievable for their students. These pedagogical tools may mold the right hand into a technically correct bow hold, so that students can begin to work on sound quality instead of spending hours on establishing a difficult position of the hand.
My Project Report examines how Bow Hold Buddies help to create technically strong young violinists as well as playing a role in improving the progress and efficiency of group classes. My project focuses on the use of the Bow Hold Buddy in classes of beginning violinists. I studied the progress of students over the course of a semester and noted how much more they improved when compared to teaching bow holds traditionally.
