Hey there, and welcome to KidStrings Box!
I’m Jen Wiggin, and I’m a proud mother of two teens and a sweet rescue dog. I teach orchestra students in grades 3 to 12, and also have my own violin and viola private studio here in Atlanta, Georgia.
From experience teaching each day for the past several years, I know firsthand how overwhelming it can feel to learn any musical instrument, much less one like the violin. There are so many tiny but important details involved in just holding the instrument correctly. Often students give up too quickly, before it gets really fun!
I also know that it can be difficult for parents to find the best ways to support their child in learning a string instrument, especially when many never played an instrument themselves. Short of the local violin shop or classroom teacher, there aren’t many reliable online resources for kids.
And that’s why we created KidStrings Box.
You can rest assured that all the items in our boxes were personally tested and approved by experienced string teachers, and each item is carefully curated to meet the highest standards in quality. We stay updated on all the new innovations in string pedagogy, and are constantly searching out new suppliers of products and accessories to bring the learning to life. And we personally arrange each and every piece of music and technique exercises to match each instrument’s specific challenges.
So whether your student is studying privately, or in school, or on their own, it’s our mission to be THE trusted monthly resource for skill- and age-appropriate string music, exercises, accessories and just plain fun stuff that kids totally dig! And along the way, they’ll discover treasured music old and new, learn the fascinating history and facts behind it, read about real-life string players, and get helpful tips and tricks to improve.
Our boxes are perfect for gifting or monthly subscriptions, and we guarantee they will be hours of fun. All delivered right to your door.
Please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns. We’d love to hear from you.

"The KidStrings Box was great! I thought there were lots of fun and useful things in there. I really enjoyed it and I think it's really helpful for learning more about the violin and learning to play better!"
Charlotte, violin student
"I loved it! My favorite part was the lessons. I did not have a least favorite part. The lessons were not too hard to follow, but they were not very easy either."

Elizabeth, cello teacher
"I loved the different levels of music. It is perfect sightreading for my student who has been playing for four years. I also love that you have techique exercises, the variety was AWESOME, and I was so excited to see the rhythm and bowing and extension practice.
Kristen, violin parent
"I just wanted to reach out to you to thank you for once again, putting together such a wonderful box of string-themed goodies. It's so great to see my son learning about a different composer each month and really diving into the history and music of that composer..."
