Aaron and Orchestra

Aaron brings home some info on Orchestra for next year. He tells me first hand that he doesn't want to do Orchestra at school but just wants to use the violin at home because he can't get out of it until the 6th grade if he doesn't want to do it anymore.

Hmmm. So do we buy/rent him a violin and hope he is a willing participant during the entire 5th grade and hope that this isn't a recipe for disaster?

I'm nervous because of his Autism and his frustration level learning a new thing like that.

He has a choice between: Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass. He chose Violin, I haven't heard his 2nd choice yet.

He isn't interested in sports at all, he is active in Cub Scouts but after next February he will be moving into Boy Scouts. He is a very quick learner on most things as well.

Any advice?
