Violin Lesson and Type of Violin to Buy?

Postby XiaOYinG » Sun Apr 19, 2009 4:44 pm

Hi, I would like to know if anyone can share where can I buy a violin for my 5 years old son at the minimum budget. Cuz I heard that buying a expensive violin for children is not recommended as they will change the violin every 6mths as they are still growing up. Besides, what type of lesson should i choose? Individual or class? Any recommended school around Jurong Area?

Thanks.. =) :D

Try synwin. They have a good range. We just purchase a new violin for our gal 2 months ago as she outgrew her first violin after 1 year.

Thank you all. It is more difficult to decide on a full size violin than a smaller ones. Still searching ...

You might like to try Gramercy Music http://www.gramercy.com.sg/. They seem to have quite a wide range to choose from...

We bought a full size from Gramercy recently. It is from Italy maker Paolo Vettori. There are others makers from France, Czech, Japan etc.
The price of the violin determines the sound of the violin. You have to set your budget first.

There are other shops in Singapore : Synwin, Amber Craft etc.
