Rent vs Own

Many shops are charging $30 to $40 per month to rent a student violin. That means that for a few months worth of rent, you can buy your child his or her own violin. The Cervini HV150 outfit pictured to the right which includes the case and bow, can be purchased new for $149.95. Many of the cheap instruments which you can buy online are not set up and nowhere near well adjusted, making them extremely difficult to play. Don't handicap your child's progress with a badly setup instrument. My violins are always completely shop adjusted and ready to play.

Trade-ins welcome

Have an old violin stashed in your closet or attic? Maybe it is in less than optimal condition, but that's okay, bring it with you and I can give you a trade in allowance for it.
