Here's a list of our violin recommendations but first here's some information that will help you navigate the right choice.
AGE OR SIZE OF STUDENT MATTERS
The size of the violin and the size of your child matters when you are choosing a violin.
For instance, if you have a 7-year-old that is big for their age then you may want to consider a size that is more appropriated for a 10-year-old than for a 7-year-old.
If your 10-year-old is a small 10-year-old than you want to look at a size that is more appropriate.
Typically, 10-12 year olds and above play full size adult instruments.
CHOOSE THE STARTER KIT
It is much to purchase the bow, tuner and extras all at once then to piece your violin purchases separately.

This is a great starter kit for young children 4-5 years old. Cost for this 1/8 Violin Starter Kit is $67.95 and moves up to $69.99 for full size for ages 10+. It is very low priced. The back, front and sides are made from composite wood while the fittings are made from durable plastic.
