my daughter have been taking Violin for 2 years now and I am thinking about to get a violin for her instead of rent from the instructor ($30 per month). I looked at Amazon and found many violin cheaper between $59 to $189. that was in my budget. any suggestion? have you every purchase one? some brand is Suzuki (which costs.. $370).. my daughter just changed her size from 1/8 to 1/4. i think this size she may use about 2 years or 3 years.. .before move up to the bigger size.. please advice.
