My students are very respectful and fast learners! They love their instruments and each time they learn something new I see how their eyes light up!
My goal is to teach them how to play with proper technique in order to accomplish musical concepts.
Their sound has improved enormously this year and they can hear the difference! Now, we are ready to develop more skills in our left hand. Having the right equipment and instruction, my students can reach their musical potential.
Practice WELL makes better!
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.
