As a musician, our instrument is the device to express and bring to life our feelings and emotions. Most of the times, the cost of a top quality instrument can’t be supported by the musician. Luckily, foundations such as Stichting Eigen MuziekInstrument generously help musicians in pursuing their dreams. In my case, I was given the opportunity to purchase a beautiful double bass german bow. The acquisition of this bow had a big impact in my development as a double player and musician. Thank you SEM, to make this possible.
