It's a Set-Up! (VIOLIN & VIOLA) - 2 part workshop / 23rd and 24th June

Yep, this workshop is about chinrests and shoulder rests, also about neck bliss and shoulder happiness, … and about anything that may hurt as a result of a wrong set-up! YOU will set the initial steps of this 2-part workshop by sharing the top 3 issues/questions you may have about chin/shoulder rest set-up and would like to see addressed … and you will get some element of answers to these questions in the 2nd hour. See, it IS a set-up!!

While playing discomfort is never ONLY about a bad chinrest or shoulder rest, the set-up matters when exploring ways to eliminate unwanted tensions and be smarter about how we move around the instrument. Whether you are questioning your latest chinrest and/or shoulder rest, or trying to release tension around your set-up, or getting stuck figuring out how to keep that scroll up so that you are fully ready for a commanding stage entrance whenever we can resume sharing music in public (!!!), this workshop is aimed to bring you some answers to these issues … and more!

Please submit your questions to Claire in advance by emailing
