Budding violinist

Postby GrownupMum » Sat Aug 12, 2023 12:15 pm

My 8 year-old granddaughter is keen to learn the violin and I wonder if anyone can recommend an inspirational teacher and suggest where I might source a secondhand child-size violin. Thank you!

Very strongly suggest you contact Wandsworth Music - they are an amazing organisation that cater for every ability, up to students winning scholarships to the London Music Academies.

Second that - great, inclusive organisation with ties to lots of local schools. And they offer instrument hire, which is worth considering before committing to purchasing one.

Hello there. I have three Stentor violins to sell, quarter size, full size and either half size or three quarter size. The smaller ones were very quickly outgrown and all in good condition with bows and cases etc. Can also throw in chin rest. If you are interested I can send more information, pictures etc. My girls had private lessons with Jilly

Hello,
Pls contact World Heart Beat on Kimber Rd - a hugely inspiring music academy with excellent teachers. There's a real family feel to the place, a real music community with all sorts of opportunities to learn from other musicians as well as performing in the community. Plus, they provide instruments on loan, free of charge.
