Want to try before you buy? We have many violins available for rent.
Because size of the instrument is so critical for violin, we offer violin rentals as your student learns and grows. As they grow bigger you can move up in size in violin. We know that investments in musical equipment can become very costly. Please contact us for an evaluation with one of our instructors and then we can determine your recommended size.
