Last year, I ditched my shoulder rest and now I can't turn the pages fast enough. My first thought was, hire a full time page turner. Nah, I don't make enough money for that. When using a shoulder rest, you just use your left hand to turn the pages. Now that I am playing restless, if I take my left hand off the instrument, it will fall to the ground. I can't turn with my right hand because it is busy holding the bow. So, how does one go about turning the page quickly when playing without a rest?
