Choosing your First Instrument
When considering the rental or purchase of your first orchestral string instrument, quality is important. The market is flooded with very cheap and poorly made instruments that also equate to the quality of the sound experience of these “knock-off” instruments.
Evergreen Workshop has a number of quality first-time quality violin, viola, cello and bass string instruments on premises for rent. We also ensure fitting the right size instrument to your needs while you are learning… and growing.
If starting as a child, a good recommendation would be to rent your instrument until reaching full size before purchasing. Sizing the instrument to your frame is always important to consider with string instruments.
First lesson Recommendations
Renting or purchasing an instrument of the right size for you is among the very first and most important considerations you need to make. Instrument rosin is also among the first items you want to have for your first lesson.
Additionally, most violin teachers generally agree that a tuner, shoulder rest and notebook are nice to have with you at the start of your classes.
You will be provided with a list of required items for your class depending the type of instrument you are learning on and the level of skill you currently possess. We encourage you to be as prepared as you can be to get the most from our time. As with anything – practicing what is taught with each lesson needs to be a habit.
