I’ve just started playing the fiddle and now my 7 year old son has taken to a liking.

Can someone tell me what size fiddle/violin he should start with? I started looking and see all types of sizes. Any help sure would be appreciated!

Thank you

You can find charts online showing arm length and different fractional violin sizes. (I tried copying a link into this message but didn't do something right.) Just do a search for something like "What size violin do I need?"

Place the violin under his chin, stretch his arm out, and it's a good size if he can place the scroll in his palm.

Hope he enjoys learning with you, and you enjoy learning with him. Sounds like extra fun.

He is excited and so motivated as a 7 year old. I’ll post a video a few months from now to show his progress.
