The violin is a wooden string instrument. The violin typically has four strings tuned in perfect fifths, and is most commonly played by drawing a bow across its strings, though it can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers.
Violin lessons are great as they are an instrument that can be used in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition and in many varieties of folk music.
They are also frequently used in genres of folk including country music and bluegrass music and in jazz. Electric violins are used in some forms of rock music; further, the violin has come to be played in many non-Western music cultures, including Indian music and Iranian music.
The instrument came to prominencxe in the 16th-century in Italy. Violinists and collectors particularly prize the instruments made by the Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati families. The voice of a violin depends on its shape, the wood it is made from, the graduation (the thickness profile) of both the top and back, and the varnish that coats its outside surface.
