Exciting news! The 4th graders have been working on holding and playing with our bows!  The image below shows proper hand position for holding the bow.

Fifth grade students are working on the following concepts: slurs and ties, the new notes F natural and C natural, notes on the G string, and hooked bowings. Bravo 5th grade, we are getting prepared for Middle School Strings! Our next goal is to learn notes on the cello and viola C string, and the violin E string.
