The BowStopper Device is a great tool for helping young string players in managing their bowing. I recommend the BowStopper over tape or hair barrettes because it places emphasis on learning by feeling rather than sight thus allowing the player to focus all attention on the music. − Regina Carter, Jazz Violinist

Wow! The BowStopper Device is a terrific device. It automatically gets the student out of the habit of only using one part of the bow. A benefit for students of all levels. − Ed Fleischman
Public School String Teacher, New Jersey
