During a violin lesson, I was having trouble playing spiccato. Spiccato is a technique where the violinist bounces the bow quickly.
I was convinced the problem was the bow. I needed a better bow. A lighter bow that had a natural bounce and was better balanced.
After explaining this to my teacher, he put down his $200,000 bow and used mine. It worked perfectly!
The problem wasn’t the bow. The problem was my lack of skill with it.
Often, we search for the ideal bow, the perfect computer, the most effective routine to do our work.
What would happen if we focused on developing our skills instead?
Thanks for caring!
