Rosin a violin bow for the first time

In this video, we learn how to rosin a violin bow for the first time. To start, you will want to tighten the hair on the bow by turning the bottom bow clockwise. Next, you will take your rosin and move the bow over it. Just do small sections at a time, then move onto the next section. It may be hard to get the rosin going, scratch it with sandpaper before you begin if it's being difficult. You will know when the rosin is going, because it will not look shiny anymore. Once you reach the top of the bow you are finished, go through the bow with long strokes and then you're done!
