  • Age Doesn't Matter When Learning An Instrument

    Adria Viola Teacher (West Central London) Picture I believe that every child in the world should learn how to play a musical instrument in schools, because it is as important as maths or biology. But our society excludes that fact from our thoughts saying, “just gaining a little knowledge of music is enough”. As a consequence, all those kids...

It is slightly larger, sounds slightly lower, and some complain that it is more difficult to play than the Violin, but for the most part, it is played in an identical way. The viola is truly the unsung hero of the string family. Its...
