Facts About the Violin

The violin is one of the smallest stringed instruments. It’s made of wood, has 4 strings (metal or nylon wrapped in aluminium/silver), and is held on the left shoulder by the violinist’s chin.

Violins make up the largest section of an orchestra.

Their role is to play the melodies and some of the best solos. The violin is an agile and adaptable stringed instrument and that’s why it’s king of the orchestra.
