Renting a violin is a great way for a beginner to try playing the violin without incurring the cost of buying one.  Beginners young or old can simply rent a violin from for a few months, if they decide to take up playing this instrument they can simply extend the rental agreement or buy the violin outright.

Parents are often eager to buy a violin for a child who shows interest in the instrument.  The same parents are usually disappointed should the child decide not to continue learning to play it. A good way to give explore the initial interest of a child in learning to play the violin is to rent one in the early stages. have a range of violin sizes available for rental. We have quarter size violins for the smaller child, through to half size, three quarter sized and full sized. Once started with a quarter size, we provide an upgrade path through to full size with no additional charges for upgrading from one size to the next.

We source all of our violins carefully, selecting each for the quality of its sound as well as the quality of its artisanship.  A beginner is more likely to enjoy and be encouraged to take up playing the violin, and to practise regularly, if his or her violin produces quality sound.
