Okay, so here is a big question. What each student should carry in their violin case? Remember, good student should always be prepared and carry all the violin essentials. Here is my take on what to keep in your violin case.
1. Shoulder rest
3. Extra set of strings
4. Cleaning cloth
5. Peg compound
6. Metronome/tuner. Most of the electronic metronomes have a built in tuner.
7. Pencils with erasers
8. Mute and practice mute
9. Dampit (use only during winter months)
If you can, you should also carry an extra bow, and don’t forget to pack all your music!
