What Items Should You Have in Your Violin or Viola Case?
These are the 14 items I usually have in my violin or viola case:
Take a look in Zlata’s case…
I will give you a sneak peek in my own personal violin case and show you what I carry around to rehearsals, lessons and performances.
- Orchestra mute
- Rubber practice mute
- Violin cleaning cloth
- Personal item (a picture of Picasso’s violin player)
It is nice to have a personal thing with you if you are playing some time away from home.
- Shoulder rest
- Chin rest with a little gel rest on it
- Tuning fork
- Old bridge (not essential)
- Full spare set of strings
Very useful for when a set breaks during a rehearsal or studying for example.
For when I am playing outside and it is windy: my music does not fly away!
To write things down on the sheet music.
- Bag with sheet music
- Music stand
