A Teacher’s Advice
I encourage beginning students to start playing on a high-quality violin that allows them to sound their best from the very start. Kennedy Violins instruments are excellent. They look good—I like their natural oil finish. Thick lacquer finishes, or painted on colors dampen the sound of an instrument. The violins are already set up well so they're easy to play, and they have the best sound I’ve ever heard from a starter instrument. I highly recommend Kennedy Violins instruments as I do to all my students!
