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.

Evergreen Workshop has a number of quality first-time violin, viola, cello and bass string instruments on premises for rent. We will also find the right size instrument for you while you are learning… and growing.

For younger students, we recommend renting your instrument until you reach full size before purchasing. Sizing the instrument to your frame is vital to learning and enjoyment.

First lesson Recommendations

Renting or purchasing the right size instrument is the most important consideration you can make.

Most violin teachers generally agree that you should have a tuner, shoulder rest, bow rosin and notebook when you start your lessons.

You will be provided with a list of required items for your class based on the type of instrument and your skill level. We encourage you to be as prepared as you can be to get the most from your class. Practicing what is taught at each lesson needs to become a strong habit.
