Does your bow bounce when you don't want it to? These 4 tips can help you achieve a smoother more desirable bowing technique.

1) Pulling the bow rather than pushing it - with flexible fingers.
2) Keeping the instrument a little higher, even if it's only an inch.
3) Turning the bow inwards slightly for more of a shock absorber effect.
4) loosening the bow.
