What matters (... and what doesn't) when attempting to optimize violin/viola chin/shoulder rest set-up?
In this fascinating class, Claire Stefani will address how to set the proper somatic foundation for ANY set-up to work, and then offer guidelines on how to successfully adjust chin and shoulder rests to one's body type.
While playing discomfort is never ONLY about a bad chin rest or shoulder rest, the set-up matters when exploring ways to eliminate unwanted tensions and be smarter about how we move around the instrument. This process has more to do with assembling a puzzle than finding a miracle product that will quickly fix movement limitations! Claire will first use body mapping to reinforce a few important anatomical realities of the shoulder joint and the spine. She will then review some chin and shoulder rest options to allow for free and safe movement, and discuss how to customize some of these to multiple body types.
