The explanation begins at the end of the piece and deals with sound, dynamics, and bow use. Professor Miriam Fried insists on this last issue and explains possible bow changes (in specific passages), the right arm movement -like a pendulum and freer- and bow speed. She talks about the position of the left hand in relation with the use of the vibrato.

The fingers are very important while playing because they convey musical information. The sound must be more concentrated, which means that the student must be more conscious of the contact point. It is important to be aware of the other instruments in the orchestra to have a correct balance. It is also interesting that the student makes a visual choreography of the performance and thinks more about the requirements of the piece.
