Grace's Bow Wrist Make-over

Can you guess which posture point Grace and I worked on in her lesson yesterday? You guessed it! Her wrist.

Transient

Grace has a lovely loose and relaxed bow hold, but her arm weight is being held above her wrist. To help with this, we're focusing on straightening that wrist of hers a little more than it has been recently. (See the above photo for an extreme example of her bent wrist.)

When her wrist straightens out, she can release her shoulder and upper arm to allow for her energy to really sink into the cello strings.

*in my Oprah voice* "It's gonna sound GOOOORGEOOOOOUS!"
