P3 - B6


  • Coordinate the action of both hands rhythmically on the pulse and in basic position shifts
  • Play at different speeds with varied bowing techniques and rhythmic patterns, maintaining a regular pulse

Show learners how to coordinate faster bowing and fingering patterns, e.g. triplets in jigs or the uneven quavers found in jazz or hornpipes.

Athole Highlanders

Jigs and hornpipes offer plenty of opportunities for developing coordination.

Ensure learners internalise the sounds when playing dotted and syncopated rhythms, e.g. clapping/tapping.
