Learn How to Rosin the Violin Bow
Hello, welcome to ViolinTutorPro.com. Today, we’re going to learn how to put on violin rosin and we have two different sets of rosin. We have what’s called box rosin which is called felted rosin. Both of these are usable to rosin on the bow. I recommend felted rosin more because a little more of concentrated rosin compared to the box rosin. Now the box rosin is going to be included in many of the violin outfits that you buy online, whatever your outfits.
You can by this separately. It’s about $10.00 to $20.00 for this type of rosin. So what you’re going to do for the first time if you’ve never rosin your bow. You’re going to do this probably for about three minutes. What you’re going to do is scratch the surface of the rosin with the tip of your bow which is called the button. You’re going to start getting like a powdery type material that comes out of the rosin and right from there, you can start stroking the bow with the rosin just like this and make sure to get both ends evenly. Everything is going to get what you want get a lot for the uneven just like that and for the first time, we’re going to have do that probably for about three minutes. Now, every other time once you have enough rosin on you only going to have to do this for about 10 seconds or so.
Just make sure, you’re going to go fresh coat on there and to see if you have enough rosin on what you’re going to do is take the back of your finger and just stroke the bottom part of the hair and see how much rosin can stick to the back of your finger. Now if you hold lot like is almost totally white. That means, you have way too much on then you’re going to flick the back of the hair kind of get rid of some of that residue. Now, if you don’t have barely or anything on the back of your fingers, that means you don’t have enough rosin on. So you probably want to do this a few more times. This also goes for the box rosin. You’re going to scratch the surface and do the same kind of thing.
Make sure also until you have it tight enough. You don’t want totally lose towards like almost touching the stick like this. You want to make sure that’s tight enough by tightening the button here. So, here’s tight enough and that should be good. For once you have enough rosin you’ll be able to play the violin. It also makes a sound otherwise it’s hard to get kind of sound of it and so learn how to play the violin. You’re free to visit my website which is at ViolinTutorPro.com. Have a great day.
