I think upgrading to a better violin is a personal decision- if you have the real desire to play and can’t afford an expensive violin you can work till you get the sound you want- I learned that from my first violin teacher who was a very elderly lady. She told me about her first violin- her family couldn’t afford one and somehow she got an old beat up violin- she said she wanted to learn so badly- some strings were missing and she taught herself to compensate – she took lessons and said her teacher was appalled at the condition of the violin- well when she played for him he was amazed- so it is possible to play on cheap ones
