🎻🎻🎻Do you struggle with getting your left and right hand to sync up? Let us help! Grab your fiddle—go do it!—and let’s tackle this right now with one simple exercise. 🎻🎻🎻

*
Grab your trusty metronome (you knew I would say that) and set it on a slow beat, maybe 65 bpm to start. Then start playing quarter notes, syncing each one exactly with the beat. Don’t worry about your left hand at this point; just play one pitch and focus all your energy on bowing evenly.

*
When the even quarter notes feel more automatic, switch to playing eighth notes (still only one pitch) and make them just as rhythmically even as the quarter notes. 

*
Now, when you’ve managed to get consistent, rhythmic eigth notes (and not before!), try playing a scale. Keep your bows even. 

*
Don’t try to sync your left hand to your right hand. You heard me. Instead, sync both your left hand and your right hand to the metronome. Keeping a slow pace is key here.

*
Once your scale is in sync, try applying these same concepts to your tunes. Use the metronome to ground both hands and go slowly.

*
Let us know how this goes for you! 

Cheers — Celeste
