Are you looking for a string instrument?  Feeling bewildered by the choices?

If your child has recently decided to play, or you are looking for a new size, you may be asking: 

  • What does our child need for her first or next violin?
  • How much will we have to spend?
  • What do we look for in an instrument?
  • Are there options for used and new?
  • Should I rent or buy?
