About Rhythmizing the Bow:
Bowed string players tend to be far stronger at controlling and innovating rhythmic ideas with the left hand than playing with accuracy with the right. Years spent with the focus on tuning every pitch and learning melodies has tended to mute strong rhythmic capabilities. This lesson will be about far more than chop technique or strum bowing, though we’ll touch on those techniques. We will provide you with wonderful rhythmic exercises you can use for daily practice and/or for your students if you teach.
You will benefit from decades of rhythmic exploration and teaching techniques shared by Julie and Tracy, including how to integrate stronger rhythmic ideas into soloing, how to play backing lines, and so much more!
Lauded by BBC Radio as “the greatest living exponent of the electric violin”, Tracy Silverman is the world’s foremost electric violin soloist, bringing concert hall legitimacy to this next-generation instrument. Read More About Tracy→
