Parla Inglese?

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing a school orchestra, after months of rehearsals, perform in a concert to parents, friends, family and teachers. Even for adults starting the violin for the first time, positive comments regarding a performance can be life-changing. Applause is addictive! But, we all must start somewhere. Where the violin is concerned, you do not want to be paying an extortionate amount of money in the outset. Stradivarius can wait! What you need is a good sounding, well-built and reliable Violin. Hopefully the interest will continue, and an instrument upgrade will be just around the corner (from Normans obviously!) violin
