The violin has a long history. Although the exact year the instrument was created is not known, the design of the modern violin goes back over 500 years. Its popularity in the 1500s and 1600s led to the rise of the famous schools of violin-making in Cremona. You might have heard of famous makers such as Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati, among others.
The violin is a versatile instrument, able to create various sounds and timbres. Not only is it used extensively in Western classical music, it is a fundamental instrument in cultures around the world, used widely in Moroccan, Indian, Mexican and African music.
Benefits of learning the violin
While learning a musical instrument will indeed enable you to become a great musician, that’s not the only benefit – in fact, learning music improves MANY other aspects of your life!
Learning violin has its own benefits such as memory improvement and physical health benefits, for example, better muscle coordination and posture. Playing an instrument requires the mastery of certain physical movements, correct posture, and a high-level of hand-eye coordination. Playing the violin also helps one improve their mental health such as being emotionally connected, encourages discipline and concentration.
Taking up violin lessons could not only provide a sense of achievement, but boosts confidence. At some point in your music lessons, you will have to perform for someone – it may be your teacher, it may be your parents, or it may be at recitals in front of your family, friends, and strangers! While it may seem daunting at first, any seasoned musician will tell you that performing often gets rid of the stage fright and nerves!
Moreover, the more you master your instrument, the more you’d want to share your talents with others! Let’s be honest – wouldn’t you feel more CONFIDENT having lots of people admiring your skills on the violin?
