Rent a violin



The violin has a hollow wooden body. It is the smallest and thus highest-pitched instrument (soprano voice) in the orchestra. The violin has four strings tuned in perfect fifths with notes G3, D4, A4, E5, and is played by drawing a bow across its strings. The instrument is held with the left hand is secured between the chin and the shoulder to stabilize it. Your right hand holds the bow. You will need to rosin the hair on the bow for the bow to play properly. Refer to our violin page to determine the correct size violin for your student.

Most beginner string instrument students will start with a fractional sized instrument (as opposed to a full sized). It is common and expected that children outgrow beginner level (fractional sizes) string instruments. As your child outgrows a fractional sized instrument contact us to exchange it for the next size up. There is no charge for the exchange--simply continue with the same monthly lease payment. When your child is ready for a full sized string instrument, RMI credits 50% of your fractional sizes lease principal payments to our full sized rent to own instruments.

To determine the fractional size needed use a yardstick or tape measure and measure from the middle of the neck under the chin down the length of the fully extended left arm to the middle of the palm. If your child is an "in between" measurement it is best to go with the smaller size instrument.
