Regarding skills building in the rehearsal: my next project is essentially “All the Bowings they need”. I haven’t worked it up to presentation level yet, but I do have a worksheet with about 20 bowings kids need to master by high school age. I can e-mail you this if you want.
I would suggest you do 2 or 3 different examples using first an open string, then a one octave scale. Be very particular about what you expect–amount of bow, speed of stroke, beginning and ending spots, etc. Monitor visually to make sure everyone is doing it.
