ACOUSTIC STRINGS of NEW ENGLAND  www.acousticstrings.biz        Keene, NH

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT for violin and viola students:

A shoulder rest of some sort.  You may test out different models at most string shops.  90% of my students find that the
Everest is the most comfortable.  They come in different sizes & colors.  Black is standard for older students and adults.  While kids are on fractional instruments pick a favorite color!
 

A folding music stand.  Consider how tall your child might grow to be when making your selection.

These two items will help to ensure
proper set-up
