Training in Violin during summer camp

Children who are interested in learning violin can find out a summer camp, where violin is listed as an activity. This will help the child to nurture his / her passion. When your child decides to attend a Summer Camp to learn violin, you probably would want to buy them a violin. So, first you have to select the right size which is required for your child. Below are some tips which you can consider while deciding to buy a violin for your child.

For choosing the right size of violin, you must measure from the middle of the left palm to the neck. Stretch out the left arm fully perpendicular to body and measure. If you are choosing a violin for a growing child, it is best to choose the bigger one to avoid upgrading in the immediate future. Please see the chart below for guidance.

 Arm Length  Approximate age  Violin size
14" - 15.4"   3 - 5 Years  1/16
 15.5" - 17"  3 - 5 Years  1/10
 17.1" - 17.5"  3 - 5 Years  1/8
17.6" - 20"   4 - 7 Years  1/4
20.1" - 22"   6 - 10 Years  1/2
22.1" - 23.5"   9 - 11 Years  3/4
