Instrument Sizing Guide

For Violinists and Violists: Have your student fully extend their left arm out to their side. Before measuring, have your student bring their left arm forward about twenty degrees or so. Place a ruler from the base of the neck out to the line where the hand and arm meet. Note this measurement. Use the chart below to find the closest size to the measurement you took. When in doubt, choose the smaller size.
