Mimi Zweig's Short Story of Passage Practicing: Part 1 of 3

Practicing a passage of music is essential for any violinist and it can seem daunting at times because there are so many different ways to practice them. In the first video of this series on practicing, Mimi discusses the basics: separate, stopped, and slurred bows, which makes it easier for you to practice and master musical passages. If you want to take your violin playing to a whole new level, be sure to watch the next two videos in this series. Mimi's delightful teaching approach gives you playing tips that can help any violinist improve their technique.
