Many thanks to our UK distributor, for presenting Things 4 Strings bow accessories so well at last week's European String Teachers Association UK (ESTA) Summer School. Many teachers there optimize instruction time and speed progress by using our bow hold helpers with every beginner. Violin teacher Elena Crocker (CAIS Lisbon) sent along this lovely student pic and note below:
That little boy is my son Kai J.
At our school we have purchased several of the classroom kits through the Portuguese luthiers that have businesses with Valles Trade. I was so happy to see it advertised at the musical fair at the ESTA UK Summer School for String Teachers! I highly recommended it, and said that at CAISL it is used in our beginning string orchestras and by a handful of little ones that take lessons with me at school. It has made it a lot easier for all of our students to enjoy their beginnings in the world of bowed string instruments.
I hope it gets wider distribution in Europe!
