Before choosing a violin or viola for your child or grandchild, you will need to know what size they need.
I have violins for children four years old to teen, so you will need to know what size to buy.
The measuring is not by a child’s height, but by arm length. See the video below on where to measure.
If your child’s measurement falls in between two lengths, opt for the smaller one. It’s easier to play a slightly smaller violin than trying to reach further on a bigger one.
The 4/4 full size violins are for teens and adults. The electric and acoustic electric violins are 4/4 full size.
