Pain in the neck? It could it be your chin/shoulder rest set-up!

CLAIRE STEFANI

  • 15 years of experience with orchestral string accessories (cases, strings)
  • Owner of Volute Service ( www.voluteservice.com)
  • Body Mapping affiliate trainee, active member of Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA), fitter for Frisch & Denig chinrest line.

WHY EXPLORE ACCESSORY OPTIONS?

  • Valid market study run in the Netherlands (www.violinistinbalance.nl), documenting the benefits of customized chin and shoulder set-up to accommodate a wide array of players’ body structure.
  • Access to inexpensive customized chinrests (http://chinrests.com) designed to accommodate all body types while keeping the instrument no higher than needed.
  • Can efficiently complement but never replace Alexander/Body Mapping/Feldenkrais postural education/correction approaches.

** Individual private appointments will also be available on Friday, April 27.

Cost is $80.

To schedule an appointment, please call 617-262-0051.
