Professor Schmidt advises the students on metrics in order to get a more appropriate character. Then he considers, together with the quartet members, the different accents, entrances, dynamics; the finger position to obtain a better control on the bow pressure, sound balance and color, harmony, and articulations, among other issues.

Additionally, Rainer Schmidt proposes them to find the relationship between the time and the sound, as well as other suggestions related to the bow technique.
