Caring For the Violin & Bow

Before you or your child practices, the bows screw needs to be tightened









Bow The Violin Place

Not so tight that the bow loses it shape

Now it time to apply some rosin to your bow.

Hold the rosin in your left hand, up where the violin would be.

Then pull the bow back forth on the rosin as though you where playing the violin.

Once the rosin is applied, you may need a shoulder rest to help the violin stay up in the right position.

If one is not needed then you are ready to tune your violin.

Once tuned and practice is over you must wipe the strings and the violin off.

So the rosin won't stick to the violin, ruining the finish and the strings.

You also need to losen the Bow, but don't let the hair of the bow tuch the stick.
