Perfect your tone with the TAPES method

  • Lesson 1: Traction
    Struggling with a gritty or wispy tone? Make sure your fiddle is set up correctly and learn how you can use the surface area of your bow to improve your tone.
  • Lesson 2: Accuracy
    Focusing on too many things at once can lead to ineffective practice and frustration. We'll look at how we can engage our wrists and take advantage of bowing zones.
  • Lesson 3: Pressure
    Too much, too little? We'll show you how to use the heel of your bow effectively and get a consistent tone. Then we'll talk about  controlling the volume of the fiddle.
  • Lesson 4: Evenness
    Are you getting good tone from heel to tip? Before moving on to more advanced techniques like slurs you need to be able to maximise the use of your bow.
  • Lesson 5: Speed
    Learn about bow management. Smooth bow transitions are essential for players looking to produce a refined sound. We'll show you the quickest way to achieve it.
