Age to Begin Lessons
(Ages twelve and up):
While viola students can start quite young typically students start with the violin first. After they have grown into a full size violin they then move to the viola, typically, this is around 12-13 years old.
Those students looking to upgrade to a high quality stringed instrument should be sure to test out several different types. Older instruments are a good investment, though more expensive than modern models. We will happily give you tips to help you find the right model.
The most affordable entry into stringed instruments is through renting, though the quality is usually lower. Still, this is a great option for beginning students, if they progress well and continue playing as they get older, it makes sense to purchase a new instrument at that time.
The Hidden Advantages of Learning the Viola
While Viola is not the most popular stringed instrument it has many advantages for learning it. More than just a beautiful instrument it gives its players great opportunities for playing and advancement in local and school orchestras. Typically, there are more violinists fighting for position, the Violist’s tend to be few and therefore have more opportunities.
