Violin Size Guide

The ideal size violin for a child is that which allows a 90° angle at the elbow when holding the violin in a playing position. We recommend using a flexible tape measure to measure the distance between the base of the neck and the left wrist. The hand should be extended and the arm held out perpendicular to the body with the shoulder relaxed. Take this measurement and use the table below to determine the correct instrument size. We strongly discourage playing on instruments with ‘growing room’ as this can have a detrimental effect on technique, form and posture.

The following table provides a guide to selecting a suitable instrument size. Other factors may be taken into account, including teaching method, and teacher and player preference. Instrument sizes may vary within their defined fractional size; this guide applies to Stringers’ range of instruments, and is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, but not definitive. 

Age Distance 'A' Violin Size
4 Less than 15" 1/32
4-5 15"-15 3/4" 1/16
5-6 15 3/4"-16 1/2" 1/10
5-7 16 1/2"-18" 1/8
6-8 18"-20" 1/4
8-10 20"-21 1/2" 1/2
10-12 21 1/2"-23" 3/4
