Finding An Instrument:
Finding the right instrument for you or your child is important for your success in lessons. I highly recommend you DO NOT buy an instrument on Ebay or Amazon, no matter how cheap or good a deal it may seem. These instruments are generally not good quality and will slow progress in lessons considerably. You may rent or purchase a quality instrument online from Shar Music Rentals (Missouri), Southwest Strings, or Johnson Music. I would not recommend purchasing an instrument unless you are looking for a 4/4 violin or 16.5 inch viola (i.e. an instrument you will be using long term).
If your child needs to be sized for an instrument or you would like to buy or rent in person, consider the following locations:
Top Notch Violins
Bearden Violin Shop
