Instruments

The Suzuki method encourages beginning an instrument at an early age. Since many children start at age 3 or 4, it is developmentally appropriate to begin on a “box violin” rather than one made out of wood. These can be easily made at home or bought for about $10. After a few months of learning preparatory skills, it is incredibly exciting to measure and take home the real violin!

Instrument rental or purchase is the responsibility of the parent.  Please do not order or buy one until your child has been measured!  Incorrect sizing can cause problems. There are many inexpensive violins and violas available, however, the majority of these are poorly constructed and should not be considered suitable.

I recommend renting the smallest sizes from local shops such as Lisle Violins since it is easy to switch sizes or repair. Buying a violin is recommended soon after because investing in an instrument allows your family to trade it in for better and better quality.
