It's important that you have access to a violin to practise on between violin lessons. We would recommend doing some research and asking your violin teacher in your violin lessons for advice. Buying a violin is very personal, and you need to find one with a sound that you love, but it's also worth considering it as an investment. You can also ask for advice from music shops or dealers, but it's important to remember that they aren't always impartial - they make a profit if they can convince you to buy their products, and there's no guarantee of quality or condition! It can also be helpful to get advice from a luthier who makes and repairs violins - they tend to be very knowledgeable about different makes of violin, what they're worth at certain ages etc. Unlike the market of many instruments, second hand violins can actually be much more expensive and can be better quality. However, don't get caught up in the age of an instrument if you don't know anything about the make or the quality - an old violin isn't necessarily a good violin. Most importantly, when you learn to play the violin, it should be an enjoyable experience. Choosing the right instrument, both for your violin lessons and for practice at home is an important decision not to be rushed or taken lightly!
Here are some shops to look at:
The violin comes in full size, 7/8, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, and 1/16 sizes. The smaller sizes (3/4 and below) are generally only used for children in violin lessons, and rarely produce the same quality of tone as a bigger violin. 7/8 and full size are both mainly used by adults and children 12 and up who are learning to play the violin, depending on their size. Most adult players choose to play full size violins but some feel more comfortable with a 7/8 size violin. The body length (without neck) of an ordinary violin is about 35 cm. A 3/4 violin is about 33 cm and a 1/2 violin is about 30 cm. Be careful as sizes vary between manufacturers. Size is all about what's comfortable for the player, so find one that works for you. For parents, it's worth considering how much money you spend on a smaller violin for your child - bear in mind that they will grow and you'll likely have to buy a bigger size at some point! Your violin teacher will help recommend a size in your violin lessons.
Aside from a violin and bow, you will need:
Playing music with other people is a great way to socialise, and there's something magical about being a vital part in a big collective sound. Beginners might think you have to be an expert before you can start to play in an ensemble, but this is not the case! Playing with other people from the earliest stages of your practice is a fantastic way to improve your skills when you learn to play the violin.
Here's a list of amateur orchestras that you could join:
