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!

Thanks again!

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.

5th Suzuki Teachers XChange Conference
Remscheid, Germany

Kerstin Wartburg & Ruth Brons in Remscheid, Germany

Earlier this month, Ruth Brons &
Things 4 Stringsaccessories
were truly honored to be introduced
by Kerstin Wartburg during the
Germany Suzuki Teachers' XChange
Conference opening ceremony.
Our newest video was received with
enthusiastic applause, and our supply
of samples quickly sold out!  
Highlights of the conference included
reminders of Dr. Suzuki's teaching ideals
by Charles Krigbaum (USA), and the
essentials of tone production by
Simon Fischer (UK).
Ruth especially enjoyed the opportunity
to share another of her innovative teaching
ideas with this lovely group of  colleagues.
