The best place to store your instrument and accessories is inside one of our heavy-duty instrument cases, but it is also recommended to place your instrument somewhere cool and dark, like a closet, if it is not too humid or too dry.

Most teachers will measure students prior to any registration process, so be sure to follow their recommendation. You can also follow the guide below as a helpful general rule when getting the proper fit for your string instrument.

The proper way is to turn the screw of your bow to the right approximately 3 to 4 complete turns, or until the hair is about a finger’s width away from the stick. You can also loosen it in the same way, about 3 to 4 complete turns to the left.

First thing is to make sure your rosin, if new, is scratched up on top. If it isn’t you can do this with some object like a key, scissor tip or an open paper clip. After scratching up the top, then you can rosin the bow with normal bow strokes across the rosin. Make sure not to rosin too much, or you’ll cover your instrument with dust. Use 5 to 10 strokes, but no more than 10 bow strokes should be necessary.
