All shops have reasonably priced rentals and upgrades. Playing on a quality instrument will help your student take their playing to the next level! Similar to getting an oil change for your car, your student will need a yearly instrument inspection. They'll also need new strings and a bow re-hair every school year. Your student should carry extra strings, rosin and a cloth in their instrument case. Don't forget to pickup a portable folding stand, clip on metronome and rosin!
