AMS Music Centre is pleased to provide expert tuition on the viola.

The viola is a bowed and plucked string instrument. The viola is similar in material and construction to the violin. It is slightly larger than a violin and has a lower and deeper sound than a violin. The viola often plays the “inner voices” in string quartets and symphonic writing, and it is more likely than the first violin to play accompaniment parts. The viola occasionally has a major, soloistic role in orchestral music.

The technique required for playing a viola has certain differences compared with that of a violin, partly because of its larger size: the notes are spread out farther along the fingerboard and often require different fingerings. The viola’s less responsive strings and the heavier bow warrant a somewhat different bowing technique, and a violist has to lean more intensely on the strings.
