Found 14th Jan 2016
Allieri VL144/ VL134/ VL112/ VL114

I have been looking for a beginners violin for my 6 year old daughter. If she was to borrow the schools violin and if any misfortune were to fall on the violin, I would have to pay £120 for replacement. So found that Dawsons have a sale on their violins and many other instruments and equipments.
The violin was originally £55 and now down to £25.
Dawsons Is a good music shop and has excellent customer service.
They honor their warranty.

Violin spec:
comes with a beautiful spruce top, maple back and maple sides to promote the Violins naturally produced frequencies. The body also has inlaid purfling for a stunning classical look. This is all finished in a sprayed varnish. The neck is maple and there is a metal tailpiece with integral adjusters – features that are seen on more expensive Violins.
The Allieri violin combines beautiful tone, excellent craftsmanship and reliability with incredible value for money. Also included with the violin is a quality bow and case so that you're able to begin playing straight away and have a safe place to store it when you're not.

irrelevant- may i ask where did you find a violin teacher for your daughter?
They teach violin at school for the children that want to join.
What size is suitable for a 6 year old?
I got a 1/2 violin. for an average 6-9 year old. But if your 6 year old looks bigger than that then go for 3/4.
check this link for some clarification.
What Size Violin?
Is this really worth learning on. We have been recommended a stentor II?

Stentor Student II Is a very good violin. Its not what I can afford at the moment....
Because its the beginning stage and my daughter is young, I dont know if she will stick to it.
If she does then I will have to look to give her an xmas gift.

That is the classic for beginners, proven quality over many years. I have no idea if this Allieri is up to the job. Learning any instrument is a huge investment of time and money. I would you for the best you can afford even at this early stage, rather than try to save a few quid.

My arms are so long I was told to get a double bass
Took a punt on this, thanks. Just need a flute and i've pretty much got a full orchestra. If only I had time to learn to play them all...
You should check local provision. My local council will rent an instrument to you (most types) for £10 a term, and they are decent instruments.

1/4 size. My 9 year old has just moved to a 1/2 this week
Get a second hand Stentor from ebay or elsewhere it ll be miles better !!!
Thanks OP. Worth a punt at this price.
I want to get one for myself (I'm 24 years old) and want to learn to play. Will this be a suitable product and size for me?
Interesting comments, my daughter is playing the violin. We rent a Stentor for £33 a year at the moment. The cost also covers insurance for damage etc.

It looks like to buy one it would cost £125 but then it wouldn't be insured.
yeah stuff the schools violin buy this your own at a great beginners price, heat.
Stentor is a great beginner to intermediate violin. I purchased one for my daughter years ago and the instructor was so impressed with the quality that he then purchased a few himself for pupils to use. Be careful of buying too cheap as it will not help you learn on a item that is constantly out of tune.

It's crazy how back when I was in school the lessons and the violin were supplied totally free. I told my teacher I wanted to quit because I was being bullied on the bus home by kids from another school when carrying it, and they gave me a second violin so I could have one at home and one in school.

But downfall of our society ranting aside, hot deal. Seriously at this price every single guy should buy one just as a prop so they look musical.
If I bought one, my Mrs would be sick of hearing me butcher The Godfather theme within the first day.

I wouldn't recommend it. I'm a school violin teacher with over 20 years experience, there is a very good reason the schools invest in the Stentor instruments rather than buying these dreadful violin shaped objects! Don't waste your money on this. This article may help - violinist.com/blo…87/
No word of a lie, my violin teacher at primary school told me to give up I was that bad! Scarred for life lol

Who was your teacher J.K. Simmons?
A friends son was learning to play years ago. It was painful visiting when he was practicing. He ended up a part of an orchestra playing for the wives of EU leaders visiting when we had the presidency!
Cold. it's not a Stradivarius.
just kidding, have some heat.
bought for£40 few weeks back.. very good deal
Just got mine out of the box. Comes in a pretty good case, just seems to be some canvas material with polystyrene padding on the inside but it'll hold up to a few bumps. The whole top of the case zips as well so you could probably fit some music or a small book in there. You get the case, violin, a bow, rosin and some straps so you can carry the case on your back. Unfortunately I snapped a string as I was learning that you have to push the pegs in as you turn them to tune it but I did manage to tune it using PitchLab Lite. Can't really comment on how well it holds its tune as i can't be sure i'm applying correct pressure on the pegs, but i did manage to get a reasonably pleasant sound out of the remaining strings after applying rosin to the bow. But all in all i'd say it's a lot of instrument for the money, definitely not a toy and at this price easily worth a try if you or your child aren't sure if you're going to enjoy it enough to really splash out on one.

Now, to pick up some new strings. And a mute. And a fret guide. And a book...

Got mine a few minutes ago. As you said above, its a lot of instrument for the money. I ordered extra rosin as i didnt know rosin came free with it. I cant play so I dont know how it sounds or if it keeps hold of its tune...School music teacher said to get the following book: Violin Star 1, Student's Book, with CD by Edward Huws Jones 9781860968990.
