A few words about the best beginner violin, how to buy your first violin, beginning violin lessons, and learning how to play the violin
You have decided to learn how to play the violin and need a beginner's violin. This will be your very first violin and you realize the choice you make will have a great impact on your attitude towards playing and on your overall performance. No matter your motivation for beginning violin lessons, making the right decision when choosing a violin for beginner is probably the most important thing you need to consider.
Of course, you are familiar with the violin's sound and shape; you already know who your teacher is going to be; how many hours a day you are going to practice, and what kind of songs you want to play. However, when it comes to buying a violin you realize that purchasing a violin is not quite as easy as it seemed at first. You go online, search for the words beginner violin or violin for beginner, and Google returns thousands of results in less than one second. That is quite a large result set and all you need is one instrument. The more research you do the more confused you become. You thought that all beginning violins were the same and from your research you have learned that, at least from an aesthetic point of view, you are not far from the truth. All violins look the same. More than that, they are all made of the same species of wood: resonance spruce and flamed maple. Also, almost all sellers claim that the violins they sell are made in complete agreement with the MENC specifications, which logically ensures that, from a construction point of view, all violins are the same. Let's recap: same species of wood, same technological process, same design, but a completely different end product each time. How is this possible and what exactly makes the difference between all these violins? Why is buying a violin so difficult?
A violin is a very sophisticated entity, born as a result of a very laborious process. Violin making is both art and science. To what degree is it science and where does the art begin? Not at all easy to answer! We dedicated this page to beginning violins and violins for beginners, but the following facts describe all violins, regardless their quality level. There are over 200 stages that a simple piece of wood has to go through in order to become a violin. The violin is the newborn of a family of trees, having the violin maker with his touch and spirit as its godfather. Like trees and like people, each violin is unique. Science will explain the uniqueness of each violin very easily: wood is an anisotropic material, which means that it does not have the same properties in all directions. Also, the wood has unique and independent mechanical properties in the direction of the 3 perpendicular axes, longitudinal, radial, and tangential, which makes each centimeter of wood from the same trunk different than the next one, in all three directions. The sound produced by a piece of wood is affected by its dimensions, density, humidity content and mechanical properties. As a result, each piece of wood has its own unique acoustical properties, which will make each violin a unique entity.
Of course, the wood used at the construction of a violin for beginner differs from the wood used at the construction of a professional level instrument, because the two categories of players have a different sound performance perception, understanding, and need. It is a wise allocation of resources from both a practical and a financial perspective, because the quality of the wood dictates its cost, which will directly influence the price of the finished product. The best beginner violin will reflect a balance between quality and price without making any compromises. The Transylvanian forests of the Romanian Carpathian Mountains are one of the greatest sources of resonance spruce and maple in Europe and we have direct and easy access to this wood. This allows us to avoid any concession between price and quality, and to focus on the artistic side of violin making. But science does not end after selecting the wood that will deliver the best beginner violin. The artist will make use of science in building and finishing the violin with his artistic talent accompanying him along during the entire process. The degree to which the small details reach perfection is what makes the difference between two makers and in the end between two instruments.
