What size violin is right for me?


Child violin playerI often come across children that play on violins that are too big or too small for them. This is bad for their technique and ruins their playing experience. So what size is right? It is fortunately quite easy to determine with a single measurement. 

Ask the player to lift their left arm and hold it straight and horizontally to the side. Now measure from the base of the neck to the centre of the left hand. You can now read off the correct size from the table below.
