Orchestra Instrument Rentals

String instruments come in many different sizes, so it is very important to bring the student along when renting an instrument so they can be sized to make sure they have an instrument that fits them properly.

Violin Rentals

The violin is the highest pitched instrument in the orchestra.  It has four string and is played by moving a bow back and forth across the strings.  Rosin is applied to the bow to create friction with the strings causing them to resonate.  Violins come in many different sizes.  The proper size is determined by the arm length of the student.
