So, you decided to learn how to play the violin. The first step would be finding a violin teacher in your area and buying an instrument. Besides a deep desire to discover the wonderful world of violin music, this is all you need for beginning violin lessons. Most adult players need a 4/4 size – also known as a full size violin. Petite adult players with small hands and arms find it hard to handle a 4/4 violin, and they will choose a 7/8 size violin. This violin is slightly smaller than the full size violin, and petite musicians find it more comfortable to handle. If you are in search of a beginner’s violin for a child who is interested in learning how to play the violin, you have to pick a size that will accommodate the child’s size. Violins come in several sizes – 1/32, 1/16, 1/10, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 – and they are specifically adapted for the ergonomic variations that are required for the players in each age group.

That is quite a large result set and all you need is one instrument. No wonder adult beginners and parents of younger violin beginners alike get so frustrated when they have to decide on which violin to buy. Usually, the teachers will step in and help the students and the parents make a selection.
