"Hello Tim,
I bought two violins in November - one for my daughter's Christmas present and one for myself.  I just wanted to let you know how delighted we both are.  Alice is playing beautifully and the difference in the sound she is making is amazing.  My own playing has also really improved and I've had the confidence to volunteer to play in my school's production of West Side Story. I'm so enjoying it!
Thanks again for these beautiful violins,"
Lesley
VIOLIN RENTAL
We are very happy to rent violins. The minimum rental period is 3 months or the end of the first term of tuition, whichever is later, and the cost is £30.00 including VAT.
On the day that you rent your violin, we charge £25 in advance for 3 months, and we also ask you to fill in a standing order to start in 3 months time. We do not process this for for 6 weeks.There is no charge for changing a rental violin for a bigger one as your child grows. It is best to bring your child in to be fitted for the correct size violin.
