Dreaming to play the violin like professional classical violinists Hilary Hahn, Ray Chen or electric violinist Vanessa-Mae? Enjoying magnificent tunes by Mendelssohn, Bach, Vivaldi or Mozart?
There are many reasons to buy an acoustic or electric violin. If your child wants to learn how to play the violin, the learning curve is steep and this instrument takes a lot of time and practice to master. This cannot be done unless the student invests a lot of his or her personal time working on the violin at home.
Orchestras always need a high number of violinists because they are the highest string instrument and excellent for playing the melody, and they are not extremely loud. Usually, they carry the main melody. If you are a music student who eventually wants to be part of an orchestra, it would be a wise choice to start early.
Other people want to buy Stradivarius violins because they are rare and will likely appreciate in value, so this is a good investment. Getting a good acoustic or electric violin can also help to value-add your performances and gigs.
Loan Street Singapore understands there are various reasons why people need to purchase a violin. We also understand that buying a violin in Singapore can be well above your budget because violins can cost anywhere between $200 and $10,000. Most violinists in Singapore own a violin that is worth at least $1,600 by the time they reach ABRSM Grade 8.
However, it is wiser to get a cheaper, second-hand violin if you are unsure whether you will continue playing it. Children and beginner violins cost less, but if you are a professional in search of a good mode, you need to invest more money. Just a single violin lesson for 60-minutes can cost $100.
We recently helped Ms Joanna and Mr Alex Ng buy a violin for their four-year-old daughter Emma. Emma has discovered her passion for the violin ever since finding her old grandfather’s violin. After taking a few music lessons, her teacher has expressed that Emma’s very talented and has high potential in becoming a good violinist.
With her talent, Emma’s parents want to nurture her passion because it will help with both her brain development and possibly her future career. The parents signed her up for more music lessons and she also joined a Kids Philharmonic Orchestra in Singapore. Unfortunately, Joanna and Alex didn’t have money saved for Emma’s violin or for her lessons.
