I'm not criticizing the girl at all. She impressed me so much that I called my whole family over to watch her. I'm just sensitive to proper violin sizes for children. With kids it's better to err on the small side with violins. I'm getting a 1/2 size for my 8 yr old daughter to replace the 1/8th size she has now. Unfortunately fractional violins sound awful and have no projection, which may explain why she seems to be playing a full size.
Fact is, I am amused how other players might view a scene. I am not classically (or otherwise ) trained so my perspective is always a little odd.
Just had my 11 yr. old Grand Daughter starting a school program and there was a lot of 3/4,7/8 debate going on. 7/8 won. (but it did look a bit large in her videos. Pop said she has grown 3" in the last year and is not stopping) ; ) (all she really cares about is the fit of her new clothes from Justice !)
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
