Instrument sizing

To ensure your child is playing the right sized instrument, I would first recommending discussing with your teacher, as some have preferences regarding what size to start with. However if this is not possible, you can use the sizing guide below by using a fabric tape measure:

Violin: Neck to wrist length

1/16: 33.5 cm or less, 13 ¼ inches
1/10: 36 cm, 14 ¼ inches
1/8: 38.5 cm, 15 ¼ inches
1/4: 44 cm,17 ¼ inches
1/2: 48.5 cm,19 inches
3/4: 52 cm, 20 ½ inches
4/4: 54 cm, 21 ¼ inches
