Recently I noticed that many children at my daughters' elementary school carry instruments. I understand that the school offers good music instruction and we are anxious to take advantage of the offerings son. This morning, I spoke to a child who was carrying both a violin case and a separate item that she said was a shoulder rest. I was curious to see what it was so I did some quick research. I found a zaret violin shoulder rest which can also be used for a viola. After seeing a picture, I can appreciate how a shoulder rest could be useful during long performances.
