Shoulder rests add height to the violin, as well as prevents the instrument from slipping. This prevents tension in the neck. Shoulder rests also make techniques such as shifting and vibrato much easier.

To use the shoulder rest,  turn your instrument over so you can see the back. Be careful not to put any pressure on the bridge. Slide the rubber feet of the shoulder rest onto the violin very carefully. The dip in the shoulder rest, the shorter end, should be under the chin-rest. Adjust position as necessary for comfort. If the shoulder rest is falling off easily, you may need to adjust the feet to a smaller width. Likewise, if the shoulder rest feels too tight, you may need to adjust the feet to a larger width.
