Orchestre à l’Ecole
In 2017, in agreement with the national Direction of the orchestra at the Ecole, we asked Madame Véronique Ast-Ferrand, professor of Cello at the Laval CRD and responsible for the OAE at the École Charles Perrault to test it for two months.

Circumstances:
– Children begin learning Cello in the second semester of third grade after participating in a “discovery course” of the 4 string instruments during the first semester. 
They have a small 1 ⁄ 2 hour per week of group lessons at 4.
– Then, in the fourth/fifth grade, they receive a 3 ⁄ 4-hour (partial) Cello course at 7 (grades 4-5 and CM2). They also have a 3 ⁄ 4 hour orchestral tutti (fourth and fifth graded) per week. The Celizy ® pedagogical Solution was tested on grades 3-4/CM2 for 3 sessions in June 2017. »
Findings:
– The Celizy ® Solution is very easy to use, it clips and takes off in 2-3 seconds. However, if you want to leave it in place, no problem for storing the bow in the cover because it is sufficiently fine.
– It is very light. Children are not at all embarrassed by overweight on the bow.
– Students are helped and guided by the Celizy ® Solution to hold their bow: they know better where to place each finger without asking questions, and even those who misbehaved their bow without wanting to make the effort of a better outfit, were interested To the proper holding of the bow.
– The thumb can not slide under the wand which avoids too much tightening and which mainly allows to have a wrist well high and worn. The sound is thus more resonant, less forced.
– The small finger finds its place well and the grid helps to feel the contact of the pulp.

Conclusion:
I was seduced by the Celizy pedagogical Solution.
The Celizy ® Solution was appreciated by all the students who tried it
– She instantly improved their bow outfit
-it helps to facilitate the work of the teacher in collective
In addition, I tested it on an ad hoc basis with my “traditional” students at the Laval CRD and I also found it very effective in correcting defects of outfit with a use of only a few minutes during the course. 
It remains to see the longer-term effects, and about beginners. That’s why I’m going to continue using it.
