I highly encourage that children new to violin playing begin by renting their instrument. It allows children to progress through the instrument sizes without repeatedly large costs to the parent/s, and as all the instruments I rent out are properly set up with good quality strings your child will enjoy playing far more than if you were to repeatedly buy cheaper instruments from the internet.
I have a variety of student level instruments available to rent for between £15–30 per month. More information coming soon, but please do get in touch if you are interested as I am able to send images of current stock. Delivery of instruments also available by arrangement.
