Catherine is right, the difference isnt about bass and doesn’t require a different playing technique. It is a matter volume and projection.

I have to say, if you want to get the Athena or some other concert grand in a fewf years anyway you may as well get it now. If she can’t reach the low strings now it doesnt matter, she will grow into it.

But there is absolutely no benefit getting the Clio now once to switch to the Athena or other CG in a couple years. You will only end up spending more money in the long run with no practical benefit. She can just ignore the strings she can’t reach until she can.
