As you start violin lessons, there are a couple different options you can choose as a way to obtain an instrument. Some students can choose to buy, which would be most useful for advanced, adult players, but most beginning students will choose to rent. Renting can be done on a monthly basis and will provide you will everything you need for your lessons, as far as the instrument is concerned. It is best for children to rent, as they will need to start with a smaller instrument, and work up in size as they grow.
