Music Teacher and Director of the South of the River Youth Orchestra Program in the Twin Cities MN
This is the best-designed sponge shoulder rest that I have ever found. I teach violin, viola, and cello and direct a youth orchestra. I order this for our beginning strings class and we throw away all the other "sponges" that "don't work" and drive me crazy with students struggling to hold their violins/violas in the proper position. I have even used it with middle school and high school students with remarkable results. Many thanks to whoever invited this "life-saving"!!! (my life!!!) shoulder rest! It is lightweight, affordable, and fits in all kinds of cases.
