COMFORT & SHOULDER RESTS

Student Comfort and Set-up

Each student who takes lessons at FSI is first outfitted with the correct chinrest (model and height) and then a shoulder rest or pad.  Students with short necks may not even need a shoulder rest or pad.  This is crucial for development and allows the greatest freedom and comfort.  The poly-pad is the shoulder rest that I often use for students with medium to long necks.  It is ergonomically tapered so that the end facing the neck is thinner.  This is not the same rest as the untapered shoulder rest that is widely available.   The poly-pad was developed by violist Michael Kimber.
