Go Ahead, Fiddle Around
The violin has been deemed the “most human of instruments” because of its ability to mimic the human voice with extreme accuracy. This is one reason that it is also the most popular of the classical stringed instruments.

Why take lessons?
When you first start learning how to play an instrument, holding a note for a couple of beats or hitting a high pitch feels like an amazing achievement. As you practice and become a more experienced musician, making music enjoyable, not only to your ear but to others’ as well, is a very rewarding experience. Taking music lessons from an experienced instructor who knows how to assess individual skill levels and tailor your lessons to your particular ambitions will help you meet your goals much faster.
Here are some other ways you can benefit from learning an instrument:
- Studies show that learning an instrument increases self-confidence, memory, and has proven to relieve stress.
- Music lessons have been found to improve how the brain processes the spoken word. This finding could lead to improving the reading ability of children who have dyslexia and other reading problems.
- A study by E. Glenn Schellenberg at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, as published in a 2004 issue of Psychological Science, found an increase in the IQs of six-year olds who were given weekly piano and voice lessons.
- Studies have shown that students who play instruments are often better in math and achieve higher grades in school than students who don’t. Source: Friedman, B.
