Things 4 Strings® "Healthy Playing - Healthy Studio" Booklet


Healthy Playing - Healthy Studio Booklet

This item is FREE WITH PURCHASE as resource to string teachers. Limit One Booklet per purchase.

Things 4 Strings LLC, in keeping with its core beliefs in an ergonomic approach to playing and teaching, announces a resource booklet for string teachers: Healthy Playing – Healthy Studio. The idea for the 24 page booklet sprang from a conversation between the mother-daughter string teaching team that developed Things 4 Strings® accessories, Ruth and Martha Brons, reflecting on their gratitude for the careful musical training they had received. Both have enjoyed long teaching and playing careers without injury, and, to the best of their knowledge, none of their students have injured themselves through playing either. “Healthy Playing – Healthy Studio” resource booklet is the result, with five articles addressing important aspects of a healthy studio, from the physical issues of body mapping and instrument set-up, to motivational issues of both the student and the teacher.
