Vol. 1A, No. 4A: THE BOW (pinky house)
Making a pinky house for the bow hand pinky finger
Preparatory tapes: Use a middle tape. If the bow is too long, extend the forearm to find the student's tip and add a tape.
Pinky House: This is a little nest for the right hand pinky that helps the student maintain a curved fourth finger. It is created out of tape and positioned above the button on the frog.
