Read, get instruction and practice with an empty boat. Call out the stokes for your bow person. Get her to lift some weights or do some yard work that mimics paddling strokes.

It is very interesting to paddle with a skilled paddler. I had a famous guy in the bow of my canoe once on the S Platte R in Denver. He could control the boat from the bow seat without my help. Very educational. Canoeing is a bunch of simple skills that take a lifetime to perfect.
