I was just wondering how many people own several violins. I have a whopping two now! What about you?
I want one for my daughter when she is 2. They are playable and just adorable. They are for little kids to learn the violin on, fully functioning, just tiny. I want to get her the 1/16, but my husband thinks a 1/8 will last longer for her. I just want to use it to introduce her to music.Originally posted by Thomas@Jul 21 2004, 10:06 PM
U mean those display only type of minature models?
They aren't really playable right?
I'm actually going to get a cheap-o off of ebay... I thought these little ones looked quite nice, though Too much for what is essentially going to be a toy!Originally posted by Nox@Jul 22 2004, 12:38 PM
...do you need to worry too much about quality at this stage? She'll essentially be learning the open strings and first position...by the time she's done that she'll be ready for 1/2 size...and then I think quality becomes more important...
...and this is just from the little bit I've listened in on (from a safe distance...LOL...) while waiting for my lessons, or when I'm somewhere where lessons to little kids are being given...
I have ex. for kids with weak and strong hands and fun lessons for kids who dreaded any formal form of lessons... I'll post a few lesson plans here maybe. It's good reading for parents and teachers who are actively involved with children.They also come in 1/32 and 1/64, but usually kids with hands that small can't play at all.
I don't know why so many. She is just awesome, I guess. She has her own CD at Media Play called "Classical Jam." She did that when she was in middle school. She's "ex" now because she is going to Purchase and I'm at Canisius.Originally posted by Nox@Sep 6 2004, 07:07 PM
