allie kiwi Children's violins - any suggestions? (8) RE: Tech: Children's violins - any suggestions? 27 Apr 04

He's actually very good on piano already - well, as far as his finger span will allow - and has been reading music for over a year (he's autistic, and music is his *thing*).

What sort of tone do the suzuki ones have? I saw a second hand skylark on sale today for $150 New Zealand, and wondered if that was a good buy or not. I know smaller violins have a bit of a tendency to screach - enhanced of course by their young players. But do some screach more than others?

Unfortunately I live rurally, and teachers are rather thin on the ground. But great idea - I'll look into that and see what they have to say (presuming I can find one - am teaching the piano myself)
