The violin is a unique instrument, producing a beautiful noise without hitting keys or strumming chords. Pulling the bow across the strings is satisfying on sonic and kinesthetic levels. The violin also trains your ear, allowing you to listen for pitch and tone with other instruments. It offers an extensive range of sound and style, contributing to all genres, from folk to rock. If you’re Owen Pallet, the violin replaces a whole band.
Yes and no. It really depends on who’s playing, who’s teaching you, and the cultural context. However, even professional violin players will refer to the instrument as a fiddle. There isn’t much difference in the two, though folk fiddlers may take some liberties with position, fittings, and bow movements. That said, there really is no separate “fiddle genre.”
Children should be at least 4 years old when they start to learn violin. Other than that, there is no upper limit. You can learn to play young, as a teen, in middle age, or in retirement. The sky’s the limit!

Our family could not be happier with Shayla — she is a wonderful piano teacher! My son is excited to play piano each week. I feel like we are giving him a gift that will last a lifetime. Thanks, California Music Studios!!!
