Bow Stopper

Item# BS2

$4.95

The BowStopper is a great tool for helping young string players in managing their bowing. I recommend the BowStopper over tape or hair barrettes because it places emphasis on learning by feeling rather than sight thus allowing the player to focus all attention on the music.
- Regina Carter, Jazz Violinist

How it works:
1. Clamp the BowStopper onto the bow.
2. Place the BowStopper closer to the tip to develop bow technique in the upper part of the bow.
3. Place the BowStopper closer to the frog to learn playing at the most difficult partof the bow.
4. Place 2 BowStoppers to isolate the center section for techniques such as detache.
Made in the USA.

Bow Hold Buddies

Item# BHB

List: $29.95Shar: $26.96

The fastest, gentlest way to develop effective bow holdThe bow has often been called "the violinist's breath." While violin bow technique varies a bit among fine players, all agree the primary goals of the violin bow hold are balance, control, and lack of tension. The BOW HOLD BUDDIES bow accessory instantly positions and supports all the fingers of the bow hold! The hood of the set's "Frog Frog" directs the inside corner of thumb tip to the intersection of the frog and stick. The rim of the hood encourages the thumb to remain bent and flexible. The middle finger is directed to oppose the thumb. The HOLD FISH pinky support, included in the 2-piece BOW HOLD BUDDIES set (and also available separately) directs the tip of the pinky slightly to the rear of the top of the stick. The sloped walls of the pinky-tip opening allow for finger flexibility. The accessory securely slides along the stick, to rest next to ring finger, allowing for a custom fit for all hand sizes, age 3 thru adult. This placement allows for the points of contact of the index and pinky fingers to be equidistant to that of the thumb. The accessory does not preclude the normal points of contact with the stick; it simply prevents the thumb, index and pinky fingers from wandering out of position. With these three fingers in place and in control of the stick, the middle two fingers, hand and bow arm are more relaxed and ready to learn those beginning bow strokes. Fits all size violin and viola bows. Available in Concert Black, Bright Blue and Sparkly Pink.

Cellophant

Item# CP

List: $29.95Shar: $26.96

The fastest, gentlest way to develop effective bow hold

Finally, an effective and fun solution to quickly developing proper bow grip for the budding cellist! Designed and manufactured by well-known Suzuki teachers Ruth and Martha Brons, the Cellophant is easy to install and start using, right away. Even better, the Cellophant quickly and naturally allows the student to develop proper positioning and muscle memory. The accessory opens the palm to relax the hand, and the circle of the elephant's trunk directs a flexible thumb to the intersection of the frog and stick. Anatomical features of the elephant, such as toenails and legs, provide tactile reference points, for consistent bow holds from practice to practice. The Cellophant also is designed to deliberately add a touch of weight to assist beginning players to achieve a bit more effortless tone �� more tone with which to fall in love! Fits all size cello bows. Available in Concert Black, Bright Blue, Sparkly Pink and Grey.
