How to size for a string Instrument
The first thing that most students will need to do when when renting is to find out what size instrument they will need. It is very important to obtain the correct size instrument as many beginners struggle with posture and playing difficulties on instruments that are not the correct size. Since the size of an instrument is not dependent on age or height, the best way to size your child is to bring them to our shop and one of our staff of fitting specialist can properly measure, fit, and advise you on the proper sized instrument. Another way to make sure your student is properly fit is have your teacher or orchestra director size them with the appropriate instrument. When these options are not possible, we have created general sizing charts with techniques to measure your student and the corresponding sized instrument.
