These shoulder rests will help our violin and viola students to play comfortable. Not only they will be comfortable, but they will also be able to learn proper left hand technique faster and efficient. By using shoulder rests, violin and viola students can relax their left arm and concentrate in the movement along side the instrument. Vibrato and shifting in any string instrument requires for the violin, viola, cello or bass to be stable. Since the cellos and basses have their instruments supported on the floor, they do not have to deal with the movement of the left shoulder interfering with their left hand.
