Things 4 Strings® bow hold accessories, an idea born from two string teachers with over 75 combined years of teaching experience, achieved manufacture five years ago this month. This feat alone practically qualifies as a miracle!
These popular accessories are now in use by teachers and students in all 50 United States and over 60 countries. Wow!
The governments of the United States, the European Union and Mexico have awarded our teaching tools eight patents and design registrations, with additional patents pending. Amazing!
In our own state of New Jersey, Things 4 Strings LLC has been selected to be honored this year by the Leading Women Entrepreneurs of NJ and the Annual NJ Family Business of the Year Awards, and was named winner of the 2013 Invention Lives! in West Orange Contest. We are honored!
Our 100,000+ social media following provides a joyous daily reminder that our music education efforts are indeed a string world community project!
We offer our sincerest Thank You to all teachers who have adopted Things 4 Strings® accessories into their beginning curriculum!
We also send some overdue #shoutouts of immense gratitude to our invaluable core team:
Located at 8209 Hampson St, New Orleans, Keller Strings offers a premium selection of violins, violas, cellos, bows, and their accessories.
This second generation full-service violin shop, owned and operated by Paula and John Smith, has recently earned a nomination by the Louisiana Small Business Development Center for the 2014 SBA awards: Entrepreneurial Success Award and the Family Owned Business Award. They especially enjoy customer service, bows (rehairing and restoration), varnish touchup, restoration, and finding the correct instrument for their customers.
Things 4 Strings LLC president and inventor, Ruth Brons, is honored to be named 2014 Leading Women Entrepreneur NJ Finalist.
The LWEI annually chooses a group of business women in New Jersey who exhibit outstanding performance and achievement in business and economic innovation, community involvement, and advocacy for women. Ruth Brons was cited for excellence and leadership in each one of these areas.
Last night, both Ruth and her mother, Martha Brons (the cellist behind our CelloPhant accessory!), enjoyed the amazingly accomplished company of fellow Finalists at a lovely reception hosted by Fairliegh Dickinson University.
