This question is for the teachers out there. Given the staggering variety of shoulder rests, chinrests, etc., etc., etc. And given that I've sought advice from several reputable shops around Chicago and suburbs. Further given that I am still hugely uncomfortable with any shoulder rest I've tried with my chinrest (and receiving no suggestions to change that at all). I currently don't use a shoulder rest, and I'm not convinced its the best way to go. I've read the 4,287 threads on this subject already. My teacher seems fine either way, but each has its own issues. And I still can't figure it out myself.
So the question is, would it be odd to request a lesson actually at a violin shop to gain my teachers assistance in finally getting my setup comfortable and correct?
