These are the materials all beginners in the Eastchester Orchestra Program will need in September.

violin and bow

You can rent an instrument and obtain these materials at the store that I recommended in your sign up papers.

Buying the damage/loss insurance is a good idea. Also, I do not recommend enrolling in a "Rent-To-Own" program. The final cost is never clearly specified, and neither is the quality of the instrument you will own. I recommend a regular 1 year rental every time. Do not purchase instruments for 3rd graders. You nave no recourse if it breaks or just plain doesn't work. If you are being talked into buying as a beginner, please read my famous "How To Buy A Violin" letter.
