We would love to hear from you!
I'm really liking my cellophant!
You'll likely be hearing from several other string players from up this way in the near future.
I've sent your website info to two teachers and several other adult students.
Thanks for a great product and your speedy service.
Joanie Mercy, Violinist and instructor, Rock Island, IL:
Thank you so much for your Bow Hold Buddies!
I used to research stringed instruments and accessories for a music company,
and a local college professor tipped me off to your Cellophant.
Our stores started carrying them as well as the Bow Hold Buddies.
I didn’t fully understand just how helpful these were until I started teaching
my 7-year old daughter the violin, using the Bow Hold Buddies.
The Buddies position her hand and fingers on the bow in such a way that
she has great control and sound – and her hand and arm stays relaxed!
5 Star Amazon.com Review!:
My 4.5 year old and my wife are both using them for violin lessons.
I learned about this product through Facebook acquaintance Aaron Dworkin, a fellow UM alumnus, and I'm glad I did!
My son's hand position is completely natural and he loved teaching his mother how to put the bow hold buddy on her bow and where to put her fingers!
He loves his frog and fish!
I just introduced my students to the cellophant and "Mr. Frog and Mrs. Fish"
and in ONE lesson with the bow hold buddies their bow holds were SIGNIFICANTLY better!
Thank you for this awesome, efficient and fun accessory!
My students all want them now!
Mary Campbell, Violin Teacher, UK:
This really does work.
I bought one last year for teaching...brilliant!
Ken Litton, Minister of Music/Worship Parkway Baptist Church:
Just a note to say that my Bow Hold Buddie® was a real friend to me in taking up the viola at age 55!
I was really having trouble learning and steadying my bow hold without tension.
But, in almost two years of using the elegant black version of your invention,
I now am independent of it, and have a perfect bow hold that let's me do anything
I'm willing to practice hard enough to do!
Sincere thanks for your great work at Things 4 Strings!
Joan King, Violin Teacher:
Just wanted you to know that the pinky fish arrived today.
Thank you so much! I wasn’t expecting it so quickly.
I think I’ve tried everything on the market,
plus homemade solutions,
and the “fish” are the best I’ve found.
5 Star Amazon.com Review!: I
tem works like a charm.
My son can hold his bow well as he had some fine motor skill issues.
My daughter loves the froggy bow holder she got from Things4strings!
Sam Cheung, Australian Violinist:
It really works. All string pedagogys draw on the maturity of an adult in musclarmotor coordination.
This gadget assists the developing young ones to grasp the bow effortlessly and correctly.
