Review your flashcards of your 8 notes on the D and A strings
EE Book 1: Review p. 14 and 15. Practice pizzicato first, then add bow.
Practice open strings on p. 16 and 17. Concentrate on your right hand and your bow hold.
Relaxed bow grip: Don’t squeeze
Keep your right shoulder down
Place ring finger or 4th finger on dot in the middle of the frog
Curl index finger (like a fish hook) around bow grip
If your pinky becomes too bossy, lift him up off the bow
