“Bow Works: Progressive Technique for Double Bass” is a volume designed to enable the formation of good habits. Every step has been analysed and is presented gradually, carefully and progressively. Most bad habits and poor technique come from rushed and far from well thought-out steps and activities completed in the early stages of playing. Outside influences, such as pressure from parents, schools, orchestras and using poor equipment, often play an unhealthy role in the first lessons. The first steps are crucial, as we are aiming to establish the skills needed to play the instrument.
