Instrument Rental

For your violin classes and lessons you will need a suitable instrument that stays in tune, has all four strings, is the correct size and set up so it is playable for the student. Mountain School of Strings has violins to rent for $50 per semester. If we don’t have an instrument for your student, we recommend renting from J. R. Judd Violins.
