comment Why are violin bows longer than viola bows, than cello bows, than double-bass bows ?
There is, of course, a different reason for the length of bows of non-full-size instruments: you give shorter bows to kids with shorter arms so they can build up good bowing habit. A 10 year old with a 75 cm bow will never be able to pull far enough to get close to the tip.

comment Improving breath support
Interesting exercise. Do you have a rough amount of time one should aim for? (I'm not a singer, but a wind instrument player who is several years out of practice and can barely hold it up for 5 or 6 seconds.)
