Once past the doubts about which instrument to choose, let’s give some tips for buying a violin for children to those parents whose child has opted for this instrument.

VIOLIN SIZE

The first aspect that we must take into account is the size of the violin, as there are quite a few. In order to know what size we need, the first thing we have to take into account is the opinion of your teacher. Thanks to their instrumental experience and knowledge of our child’s level, their recommendations will be invaluable.

With that in mind, it’s time to give it a try. The child, when picking up the instrument, must cover the head of the violin completely. If it doesn’t, you need a smaller violin. If, on the other hand, the bending angle of the arm is too large, a larger violin is needed.

Among the tips for buying a violin, it is important to indicate that the child’s arm should form an angle of 90 degrees or more. The more angle, the greater the feeling of weight to the interpretation. The good position of the hands and body is essential for the student to advance faster, so do not rush the durability of the violin.

If your child already has another violin, have him/her take it with him/her when you go to buy another one. Comparing it to another instrument will make it easier to judge what you hear. If there is the possibility of someone else playing, you can take the opportunity to listen to the violin from a distance.

VIOLIN ACCESSORIES

The violin without its accessories is nothing. Even if you choose an economic “starter” violin, it is very important that it has a quality tailpiece and pegs, essential to guarantee a correct and stable tuning.

If the one we have purchased does not bring quality accessories, a good option is to change them for others that are, which is an important improvement for the violin without the expense being high.

Another accessory to take into account is the bridge, as it facilitates the execution of exercises and pieces, as long as it has a suitable thickness, curvature and height.

 

VIOLIN SETTINGS

Usually violins are not adjusted. Here again, the teacher is of special importance, who can help the student according to his or her preferences.

A poorly adjusted violin can be a stumbling block for the student. The curvature and height of the strings must be correct for the normal development of the study of the violin. To ensure a good result and avoid frustration, these violin adjustments should be done by professionals.
