All rental money paid for a smaller violin outfit will be applied to the purchase or rental of a larger size outfit. Violin rentals are $30/month with a minimum of 3 months rental. Exceptions are made if the student is less than five years old in which a minimum of one month rental is required. A security deposit (in-state check) is required for the remaining value of the violin outfit and cashed only if rental payments are late.
The proper violin size is important for a pleasurable playing experience and facilitates proper technique while avoiding unnecessary tension when playing the violin. Some adults may be more comfortable in a 3/4 or 7/8 as their final violin due to a smaller hand size and arm length. We have violins 1/16 through 4/4 size (full size).
Violin size and age charts are estimates so it is best to wait until the first lesson to determine the appropriate violin size. I can determine this at the student’s first lesson.
