Kim Kashkashian, viola soloist: "Fantastic tool!"

 

Dear Ruth,
Claire Stefani showed me your bow hold inventions today,
and I wanted to tell you that it is a fantastic tool!
I am going to try it on a very talented 18 year old with a terrible bow hand. Thank you for making this!
All best wishes, Kim Kashkashian
