Most VIOLIN students should order a 3/4 size violin unless your child is very small, then a 1/2 size will do.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY AN INSTRUMENT ONLINE WITHOUT CHECKING WITH ME FIRST! Poor quality instruments = a bad experience. Also, the above companies are local & offer insurance, maintenance & repairs.
Clarinets & Alto Saxes need a box of clarinet or sax reeds, size 11/2 or 2.
All BAND instruments also need the method book, "TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE", BOOK 1 for their specific instrument. VIOLINS will need to buy "ALL FOR STRINGS", Book 1 for VIOLIN.
PLEASE EMAIL ME ANY TIME WITH QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS! I CAN BE REACHED AT: firstname.lastname@example.org
