    Where do I get an Instrument?

    Fifth grade students interested in Orchestra will have the opportunity to try out and be fitted for an instrument at an Instrument Fitting in March.  If you cannot attend a fitting but are still interested in orchestra, you may visit The Loft Violin Shop anytime and they can assist you in selecting the right size instrument and setting up a rental plan.  We highly recommend renting an instrument as you will need to change instrument sizes as you grow!
