Finally, money is not wasted anymore to learn straight bowing. String teachers can now concentrate on other aspects of teaching string instruments! What a relief!

The Horace Bow Guide helps students to get used to a straight bowing while practicing the violin, small viola (up to 14") or cello at home, when the teacher or mother are not looking.

The right arm gets gently used to the right movement, and then the Horace Bow Guide can be passed on to someone else. 

The Horace bow guide will do the training by gently 'insisting' in straight bowing. The bow guide is made of clear plastic for the top part and soft silicone for the bottom part to prevent any scratches to the instrument.

Because the plastic guide is wider than wire, the bow tip is not in danger to be caught under any wire when doing an up-bow.

Price:
Apparently, the value of the human body is about 70 Cents in materials. Likewise, the material for the bow guide is modest. The expensive part is creating the molds for the plastic and silicone parts, packaging, shipment to the US, import taxes, distribution (shipping again) and time.
