Benefits of Leaning the Violin for Children (and everyone else)
Learning how to play violin will enhance the co-ordination skills of your child.
Co-ordination between the left and right hands are required to play the violin successfully. The left hand learns how to finger the strings while at the same time the right hand will learn how to bow the strings the correct way to produce the right sounding tone and pitch.
The development of this skill will greatly add to the child’s left brain, right brain functioning.
