Hi. My daughter (she just turned 5 a couple of days ago) started playing the violin about 10 months ago. We are currently renting her violin (1/8). We are ok renting her violin but I am thinking if I get her a better violin (i.e. better sounding) she could be encouraged playing and practicing more (assuming better violin equates to more beautiful sound).
She is into Suzuki book 1 (still learning Song of the Wind). But she gets frustrated easily when her bow touches D string when she's not supposed to. I am not sure if that's because she's still developing her bow control or her violin is too small or whatever reason I can think of. She gets frustrated and I get frustrated because I don't know how to help her (I don't play the violin but I am learning so I can help her)
Anyways, I would like to ask your opinion if I should buy her a decent violin or should I wait until she gets bigger because she's going to outgrow her violin anyways. Thanks for your feedback
