PROTÉGÉ VIOLINS: $999-$1499 (YEARS 3 TO 5)
Starting at this level, students will find their teachers have more specific expectations for the bow as well as the instrument. These violins are generally sold a la carte and can be supplemented with bows and cases as preferred. The wood quality increases substantially with the Protégé level; in fact, many students will never need another violin unless they decide to become a professional musician. Beautiful tone and high quality strings round out these instruments and allow the student to explore advanced music and gain a competitive edge in auditions.
