We know how rewarding and exciting it can be to learn how to play an instrument; that is I am committed to starting you or your  child off right and giving you a positive rental experience.

Violin Rental fee

$40 for the first 3 month and $20 per month after this period ends

What do I get for $20?
These brand-name instruments are in "like-new" condition. They have been or not previously rented and typically have been returned within a year.
  • Premier playing condition
  • Serviced to ensure the tuning pegs function properly
  • Any cracks have been professionally repaired

The violin is a stringed instrument played with a bow. It is far and away the most common stringed instrument for students, and is pitched higher than a cello.


How do I choose the right size for my child?

Like any instrument, the violin must be the right size for the student if the best results are to be achieved. There are guidelines for choosing a violin based on a child's age. I strongly recommend that you consult with us for a size recommendation before purchasing an instrument. It is highly recommended to rent for the first three months to ensure that you or your child will continue with music study.
