You can never underestimate an impression great music makes in the child's mind

The children need to rent their own instruments and need to be correctly sized through  a string instrument rental shop such as Austin's violin shop (located in Sugar Grove),  just mention  "Kaneland Youth Orchestra" when renting to receive a special bonus.  Please check out their website for more info. 



The violin is also known as the fiddle. It has the highest pitched sound of the string instrument family.
