Meet Pepper! This little budget violin is perfect for a young musician, whom you are for whatever reason afraid of it getting dropped. It works well enough to get through the basic levels of bow holding, violin posture, A major scale and arpeggio and Twinkle, but is not to be seen as a long term instrument. Good news is, if you drop this one and it's totalled, I won't really care. That said, it is important to stress the importance of proper care and handling of the instrument to any beginner., especially to one who is lacking in coordination, self control, etc.
To purchase or rent, you must be a current student of Hallie's Studio. Simply ask via email!
"Pepper" 1/4 size No Name Violin
Instruments loaned from Hallie’s Studio will be chargeable at a rate of $10/month for each instrument on loan to my students.
Rental can begin and end at any time.
Easy repairs such as string changes, bow replacement, or bridge work, or in the case of flutes; head cork and key adjustment will be done in lesson time with no extra cost.
More major repairs will need to be taken to an instrument repair specialist, and if the repair is due to damage, will need to be covered by the student’s family. If the cost of repairs due to damage is more than the instrument is deemed worth by me, then only the amount of the instrument will be due. If the repairs is not due to damage, then no payment is required for repairs, and we will discuss options.
The following are care procedures for a violin:
- Make sure the bow is always loosened when stored.
- Make sure to wipe off any excess rosin from the strings and violin when storing.

- Avoid bumps, drops, and banging the violin inside or outside the case.
- Never set a violin down on top of the bridge.
- Never touch the bow hair.
- Never lean on the bow.
- Never touch the violin or bow with wet hands or hair.
