DYNAMIC MARCH THEME and VARIATIONS 7

Dynamic March — Variation #1
Linked Bowings
Music composed in the march-style, often include lively and repetitive rhythmic patterns. 
Default 4
Combining dotted-eighth notes and sixteenth notes, create bouncy and march-style rhythm patterns.
Default 6
Although this combined rhythm pattern may be performed by alternating bow stroke directions, traditionally the pattern is linked together in the same direction, one bow direction per beat.
Linking notes together, cause the changes in bow direction to line up with each beat, which increases beat emphasis and ensemble clarity.

It is tradition, to stop the bow slightly, before each 16th note.
