As the perfect beginner violin, the Kennedy Pupil Violin Outfit includes everything you need to begin your musical journey. We understand that the quality of your first instrument greatly affects your initial playing and learning experience, especially for younger students. To help you or your child have the most positive and enjoyable experience, we ensure comfortable playability and precise string height for new players with expert setup by our professional luthier staff. As a result, we guarantee that the sound quality and ease of playing of the Kennedy Pupil Violin will be far superior to any other beginner violin at this incredible value.
At Kennedy Violins, we are adamant about providing EVERYONE, young and old, access and the opportunity to learn an instrument by making our violins not only beautifully constructed, easy to play, but affordable. There are many inexpensive instruments that are poorly made, and you get what you pay for: something hardly playable that merely looks like a violin. We offer the Kennedy Pupil Violin as a low-price alternative for customers who want to spend the least amount on the highest quality instrument available. We are confident that you will be satisfied with the attention to detail and durability of this violin, even at such an affordable low price.
This beginner violin offers a resonant and clear sound, enhanced by the rich, dark brown satin oil finish unlike the thick, plastic-like finishes on many beginner instruments. The Kennedy Pupil comes with 4 professional grade fine tuners for ease of tuning—a necessity for new players. In addition to a genuine Brazilwood bow with real horsehair and our Kennedy Violins Natural Rosin, the outfit comes complete with the sleek, Featherweight Shaped Case. The case features two interior accessory compartments, two adjustable straps, two bow holders, and an outer zippered music/accessory pocket.
For beginning students, we recommend the following beginning violin books from our sheet music collection to get started. The following method books teach introductory techniques, music theory, and how-to basics for learning to play the violin:
FREE setup by our expert staff of luthiers is included with your order. At Kennedy Violins, the luthier staff ensures that each violin is individually assembled, setup, tuned, and inspected to our highest standards. Your violin will be ready to play when you receive it—not sent to you unstrung or in pieces as sold by other online suppliers. Our setup includes:

The Kennedy Pupil Violin Outfit is absolutely perfect for beginners, and for the price of the whole thing (including a bow, violin, hard case, and rosin - though the bow is pre-rosined when you get it, so make sure you don't accidentally over-rosin the bow when you get it thinking that it needs it), you can't beat it. The violin produces sound that is beyond that of any violin of equal or lesser price that you can find off of amazon, I repeat, do NOT buy a violin from amazon - Kennedy Violins already has you covered with this set.
Some things that you should know about the whole thing:
- The violin is working fine, no problems at all with it for the past two weeks that I've had it.
- There was tuning involved when I first recieved it (to be expected) so make sure that you have somebody that can tune a violin, or that you've got a tuner at home/with your order of this set.
- The positioning of the bow holder clips inside of the case may be off slightly.
- Minor cosmetic things are nothing the get worried about. You really have to go looking to find them.
- IF you do have something fairly major wrong with the violin or bow (deep scratches, cracks, etc. on the violin, or an oddly-shaped/warped bow) let their live chat person or their email support know, they'll help you.
