My daughter's violin arrived today. We watched the how to hold a violin, howto hold the bow and how to draw the bow across the strings videos together. We are still working on getting enough rosin on the bowtongue I did a sound test using my bow which has "tested' her rosin. I was a little wobbly after about 45 minutes of diligently applying rosin with not much success.

Sorry about the pictures. They copied really big and I think I distorted them a bit when I shrunk them.tongue

Looks great. How does it sound?

There should be an mp3 at the end of the post, but my mic stinks.

About rosin, my cello teacher told the class that when you use a new cake of rosin just breathe on it the way you would if you were fogging up a mirror and then apply it to the bow.  Warm breath makes the surface of the rosin stickier so it goes onto the bow more easily.  It's worth a try.

I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.

Never heard of that. I will try it next time I use a brand new unused cake of rosin. Thanks Gail
