Product Description
I've taught beginning violin classes before, but this semester I seemed to get all the kids who had absolutely NO respect for the instrument. I pretty nearly had a mental breakdown as I looked at the assembled students on the first day, one carelessly swinging her violin by the tuning pegs; one grabbing his violin by the strings each time he needed to pick it up; one picking up his bow by the (very loose) bowhair and asking, "Ms. Phillips, is this how the bow strings are supposed to look?"

I HIGHLY recommend this handout for use at the very first lesson, whether individual or group. No matter how many times kids are verbally told how to handle the violin, it never seems to sink in...but when a handout is given for parents to review with the child at home, it's a lot more effective. :)

TIP FOR SUCCESS: Also remind your students not to lick their rosin.
(Apparently one kid thought that rosin looks like candy?)
