Children can start playing string-quartet instruments, (violin, viola and cello) from the age of 3 or 4 years old.
Obviously, they cannot play on the same violin as an adult due to their size.
To cater for this, violins can be made in ¾, ½, ¼, 1/8 sizes etc...
On average a child will keep an instrument for only about 2 years before moving on to the next size.
To avoid buying a new instrument every 2 years, renting is the perfect solution.
As soon as the teacher finds it necessary, the child will change the size of the instrument, and when he or she arrives at “adult” size, the last 10 months rental will be free of charge if he or she buys an instrument from our workshop !
Rental instruments are of a high quality, and I assemble and check them personally.
The start of the learning process requires a great deal of concentration : it is important that the instrument works at its best, in order not to discourage the beginner !
