Catonsville Violin Studio Beginning Violin Material List
Violin & bow that have been sized - I recommend renting from Gailes Violin Shop in College Park, Perrin & Associates in Baltimore, or Potter’s in Bethesda. Please do not purchase a violin on Amazon. This comes with a case and rosin.
Cleaning cloth for violin
Shoulder Rest - purchase a sponge first and get a supply of rubberbands
Pinkie nest: Order a fish pinkie nest from Amazon (hand support part not necessary) or a "Pinky Hold" from Shar Music.
Tuning app that gives *only* the pitches A, D, G and E for violin
Suzuki Violin Book 1 & Book 1 CD
A notebook for parent note-taking
For students 11 and under the practice parent needs to be the parent present at every lesson
…And enthusiasm and willingness to practice and learn!
Materials to gradually add
A note-reading book which I will specify
A scale book which I will specify.
A collection of violin/classical music!
