Beginning string students need to learn many different skills when first learning to play their string instruments: Left Hand (posture, instrument position, left hand shape, and finger dexterity), and Right Hand (bow hand shape and detache bowing). Each of these skills needs to be introduced separately, and then developed simultaneously. Essential Elements for Strings is designed so that students can learn each of these skills sequentially and independently, leading to mastery. For ease of reference, the following diagram outlines the introduction and integration of each of these skills.
String levels, for string crossing motions, are introduced on student book page 17. Note that the motion to change string levels is the opposite for upper and lower strings, i.e., a player raises the right arm to play lower-pitched strings for violin/viola, but lowers the right arm to play lower-pitched strings on the cello/bass.
Be sure that students raise and lower their arms during the rests for each new string level in the following exercises.
