Where to purchase or hire an instrument


This is often the hardest part in starting out with an new instrument. I have given some options below to hopefully help make it easier.

Hire a Violin


If you are not wanting to purchase an instrument first up, then you can choose to hire a violin. This gives both you (and your child) the opportunity to try before you buy. I have some great contacts in Brisbane who are willing to ship a violin that's sized correctly for you (or your child). The violin comes with a full new set of strings, bow, case and rosin, all in great condition. If this sounds like the option for you see poster below. Shipping costs can be organised at a great rate too.
