Winner, Winner - We Have a Winner!!! Now, Share Your Wishlist for the Next Giveaway Contest
Dear Music for Young Violinists Friends,
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic entries in my second giveaway contest and congratulations to Laura for winning the 5 StringVision Bow Grips! It was fantastic hearing from all of you and I especially appreciated the conversations about the pros and cons of this particular bow hold product. Everyone who entered got a little musical gift from me in their email inbox - a sample of my new collection, a rousing fiddle tune arranged for 3 violins and a coupon to the store.
Your excited entries got my mind thinking about hosting more contests and I would love to hear from you about what you want to see offered in the future. Please let me know in the comments below. I can not make any promises but I will do my best to continue this fun tradition that Music for Young Violinists has started.
Here is a short video of me choosing the winner. I have seen other websites do raffles with computer programs but I thought pulling a name out of a bowl would be so much more fun. Happy music making and bye for now, Heather
You are so cute (beautiful, actually)!!! I love your old fashioned way of selecting a winner! Fun!!!! I'd love to see a give-a-way for a product that teacher's can use to help students with left hand/wrist position. I'm sure there are things out there that I (or the masses) don't know about! Not only would I love feedback on this topic but a giveaway would be great!!! Thanks for everything Heather!!!

Hello Allison, Thank you so much for sharing the idea and I can not make any promises but do know of a product that can assist with this. There is the Wrist Rascal: http://www.wristrascal.com/

Thanks for the reply Heather! I looked up the "Wrist Rascal" and that looks like it may be very helpful. I'll have to give it a try with my students! I've seen another teacher who used a miniature tennis ball but the problem with that is that the students get so focused on not letting the ball drop that they can't focus on anything else. LOL! Thanks again! :)

Very interesting to use a tennis ball. I can see the shortfall of this with the obvious need to "hold" it in place and activating muscles when the goal is to learn how to release muscles. Thanks! H
