So your student has decided to join the school orchestra and wants to play the violin! We here at Bronstein Music can help!
A very important part in starting to play the violin is getting the correct size for your student. Sizing is not based on what grade or age your student is, but several individual factors such as arm length and height of the student. If the violinist has never played before, it is very important that they accompany you for the rental so that we may get you the correct size. This helps with the comfort of playing the instrument and prevent potential injury, which makes a much more enjoyable experience for your student.
For most younger students, they will be starting on an instrument that is less than
full size. We highly recommend renting small violins rather than purchasing one.
