Violin

The four-stringed violin is a stringed instrument that is played with a bow. The standard tuning for the strings is G, D, A, and E. It is held between the chin and the left collar bone, close to the shoulder. It lacks frets and other fingerboard marks, unlike a guitar. The smallest and highest pitched string instrument frequently employed in western music is the violin. Learn this incredible instrument by enrolling in our music class.
