I agree with Kay Chang about muscialmarie1’s violin…it couldn’t hurt to take it to a luthier to have it checked. It’s good to get a professional opinion. (One of my kids had a violin teacher years ago who found an old violin at a yard sale that he picked up for about $100 that turned out to be worth thousands….always wishing for those kind of finds!) If the luthier says the violin will never be what she’s looking for it would be a good indication that trying out some others might be the next step. I’m curious about the music store she works at renting thru an online site – is that typical? My music store has rentals right there…I haven’t heard of that sort of set up.
