Description:

Bowing Fun generates random string crossing exercises for violin, viola, cello and double bass to develop sight-reading skills and agility. The teacher or performer has a variety of choices, such as exercise length and difficulty. Exercises may be viewed on-screen or printed. This app is suitable for all performers, from beginning to the most advanced.

The exercises for the cello and double bass can optionally be written to be performed one octave higher than the open strings (using harmonics) to facilitate bow agility and speed:

• Violin: A4 and E4 [Treble clef]
• Viola: D4 and A4 [Alto clef]
• Cello (open strings): D3 and A3 [Bass clef]
• Cello (harmonics): D4 and A4 [Treble clef]
• Double Bass (open strings): D3 and G3 [Bass clef] (double bass sounds one octave lower than written, at D2 and G2)
• Double Bass (harmonics): D4 and G4 [Treble clef] (double bass sounds one octave lower than written, at D3 and G3)
• Custom: any two notes, any clef

Additional suggestions for using this app effectively can be found at bowingfun.com.

Review by angel45722

Only good for super beginners - I bought this app under the impression that I could not only use this for my string students but that I could also use it's "advance" settings for myself for bowing exercises and potential etudes. WRONG! This only has basic open string bowings that would be suitable for brand new beginners. Not worth my two dollars. I very easially could have gone and made these exercises myself. There is no way to generate difficulty, only make the excersises longer in legnth. Very disappointed, and would not recommend to anyone that is not a beginning string player.
