I have chosen my 'Best for Beginners' products to help you make a difficult decision easier. Purchasing for a beginner can be harder than you would imagine. You may not want to make a huge investment for your beginning student because this is a time for them to determine if this instrument is right for them, or if music is even something that they will remain interested in. Considering cost, you still want to get a good enough quality instrument that it will not frustrate the student with poor playability or intonation. My 'Best for Beginners' products are guaranteed to be perfect for beginners: they won't break the bank, and will provide a high level of material and craftsmanship so your beginner is constantly encouraged, and not discouraged, by their instrument.
