Learning any instrument is about learning a new language, and a new way of thinking, and the violin is no exception. When your child learns the violin, they’ll develop so many essential life skills, it’s as mind-boggling as string theory. They’ll have to learn to read notation to be sure, as well as the tenets of music theory and history, but they’ll pick up so much more. They’ll develop an ear for music, the ability to hear it anywhere and everywhere; in the park, at school, in the home. When that ear has been developed, they’ll want to create music that reflects the beauty of the world, and they’ll have the ability to, because they’ll learn every technique needed to create exceptional pieces.
