Care of Your Viola

          Hold the instrument by the neck

          Wipe the rosin dust and perspiration from the instrument with a soft cloth after each use.

          Loosen the now about five turns to relieve tension when not in use. DO NOT TOUCH THE                   BOW HAIR

          Apply rosin to hair with long, slow strokes. Keep your instrument and bow in the case when               not in use.

          Do not put anything else in the case, like your shoulder pad, shoulder rest, music, pencils,                   etc.

          Check the bridge to see if it is upright or tilted slightly towards the tailpieces.

          Do not tighten the fine tuners all the way down. The arm under the tail piece will scratch the             instrument.

          Inspect your instrument and case every day. If you have any questions or problems, ask your             teacher or bring your instrument to a Summerhays Music technician.
