Kevin – Shoulder rests are not necessary to play, but they do offer a good amount of comfort and stability for players who are getting used to proper positioning and technique. You may notice some players, such as Itzak Perlman, do not use a shoulder rest. This is simply his preference, as you will also find other incredible players, such as Hilary Hahn, who swear by the Kun classic shoulder rest.
