I began making handmade chin-rests in 1980.
I have made more than 4000 chin-rests during all these years for world-famous violinists as well as for students.
As the students improve their level, it is very important at that time to discover the correct playing position for their whole body, which can free both technic and interpretation, in order to progress in the right way without self doubts.
