affordable music learning

GDF is here to support teachers and parents whose children would love to learn music and play a violin, viola of cello – affordably.


Introducing GDF’s first two affordable model ranges that are perfect for schools – the Stratifie veneered laminated and the classic school solid tonewood Etudiant.

And all instruments are supplied ready to play!

Learning to play a musical instrument is a gift for life for a child – and it also helps youngsters to improve their social, listening and learning skills. Indeed, a recent report stated that creative subjects are “demonstrably more effective than drilling Sats papers.”

“Music and math are highly intertwined. By understanding beat, rhythm, and scales, children are learning how to divide, create fractions, and recognize patterns. It seems that music wires a child’s brain to help him better understand other areas of math.”

Lynn Kleiner, founder of Music Rhapsody.

With this in mind, GDF have introduced the brand new Teacher’s and parent’s opportunities programme which will offer high quality ranges of affordable violins, cellos and violas to groups and individuals with young people wishing to enjoy the benefits that musical tuition can bring.

The Opportunities Programme

GDF’s Opportunities Programme makes available a complete selection of carefully sourced and highly playable affordable instruments and accessories, starting at just £69.00 for an OFT violin package, consisting of the instrument, very good bow, a case and rosin.

Essential accessories enhances the learning process for young students and include:-

  • Shoulder rests in plastic (FOM & VLM ‘Flex’) and wood
  • Electronic string tuners
  • Upgraded strings
  • Ingenious compact non-slip Tri-Pad design cello spike holders
  • Bow upgrades include carefully selected top Brazilwood and carbon fibre choices for all three instruments.

It’s a lovely thought that music lessons can put a child on the path to a career with a world famous orchestra – or at the very least establish an interest that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

But the advantages of music lessons can actually be far more immediate than that – in a variety of totally unexpected ways.
