finding good student violins
August 15, 2012 10:57 AM Subscribe
My daughter has been taking violin lessons for about 5 years now. Her current violin was a beginner/student violin we bought from a music rental company in the northeast. Her instructor has recommended that we need to get a better violin for her, as she is progressing and is reaching the limits of this violin. Living in Maine, there aren't that many local outlets for reasonably priced/good quality student violins, so there are few options other than the internet. Please help me narrow down my choices.

she is not ready for a full size violin, so this would be a 3/4 sized violin. This is also one of the reasons we don't wish to spend a substantial amount on a new violin, as we will be doing this again soon.
