Although it is believed that the Italian luthier Andrea Amati created the modern violin family around the year 1555, bowed stringed instruments were invented long before this date. For this reason, it can be helpful to think of the violin as an instrument that has evolved over time, rather than as a perfected product that was instantaneously invented.
While there are records of stringed instruments existing in Europe in the Middle Ages, it is thought that the first bowed, stringed instruments may have originated in Central Asia with instruments such as the morin khuur from Mongolia. These Central Asian instruments then travelled via trade routes to other parts of the world. Once instrument craftsmen in Europe became aware of these instruments and how they were made, they then created their own take on them, using traditional European crafting techniques.
Many different kinds of stringed, bowed instruments evolved in the 16th century in Europe, which has caused some contention about certain aspects of the violin family's history. It is thought that perhaps Andrea Amati did not create the first modern violin, and that it was instead created in Brescia earlier in the 16th century. One thing we can be certain about however is that there were a wide variety of different stringed instruments around in the 16th century that the modern violin and its family eventually evolved from - including the lira da braccio, a bowed stringed instrument much like the violin that was popular in the Renaissance period. The oldest surviving violin is named Charles IX, which was made by Andrea Amati in 1564, which in some respects supports the theory that Amati did indeed create the first standard modern violins, or at least provides physical evidence to justify this claim.
The violin became a popular instrument in Europe with both low class and high class instrumentalists due to its small size, versatility, and its sweet, melodic tone. The violin family eventually became more popular than its close rivals the viol family because the violin instruments had an increased sound projection that was better suited to larger concert venues.
During the late 18th and early 19th Century, the violin underwent some significant technical changes. The fingerboard of the violin was made longer, and it was also set at more of an angle to support the tension of the strings being increased. The increased tension of the strings, coupled with the change in the fingerboard, resulted in the violin having an increased range and sound projection. Older violins were adapted to these new specifications by luthiers (sometimes using techniques that significantly impaired the original instrument), and newly made violins were crafted using this new style. It is unknown exactly when and by whom these changes were initially made.
As the popularity of the violin grew, more violins were produced and the violin was adopted into many different styles of music. Violin players developed new playing techniques to complement new genres, and the violin was sometimes modified slightly to fit the needs of the new genre. The violin became a key instrument used to play traditional songs in Celtic, Irish, gypsy, and Hungarian music, and was later used to play country/western, bluegrass, blues and jazz as these genres emerged over time
The Violin Today
The violin is now one of the most popular instruments in the world. Old violins tend to be sought after over mass produced factory violins by intermediate and advanced players because of their superior craftsmanship, resonance, and because the tone and timbre of the violin is thought to mature over the lifetime of the instrument. The most famous violin maker is the 'Golden Age' luthier Antonio Stradivari, whose violins now sell for millions of dollars.
Violins that are made today can produce sound electronically by using amplifiers and microphones, eliminating the need for a sound box. Fully electric sound produced by violins can be distorted through amplifier settings to create different tonal qualities altogether - further diversifying the capabilities of the instrument.
The violin has ultimately evolved to be a very versatile instrument, and a violinist now has numerous career options and genres to explore. While violins may be famed for their classical origins, there are many amazing blues, Celtic, country, bluegrass and popular violin players flourishing in these different musical environments- which is one of the many reasons why the violin is such an exciting instrument to learn!

Let’s take a look at nine tips for improving your violin playing.
1. Do You Have the Right Tools?
Having the right equipment from the start makes the process easier and more enjoyable.
Every violinist needs:
Some adults that are small and shorter than average, might do better playing a ⅞ size violin, instead of a full 4/4 size. Or, a student that is in the 5th grade might still play a ¼ size violin, instead of a ¾, because of their size.
The type of bow you play with makes a big difference as well. Let’s say that you have advanced enough to learn spiccato bowing.
Fiberglass bows (common for beginning students) are not very good for spiccato and other advanced bowing techniques, so you’d want to purchase a good wooden bow as you progress in your playing.
Metronomes do not typically come with a violin purchase. Thankfully, modern technology has made it possible to download a metronome app on your phone and you can just set your phone on your music stand, and even use ear buds while you practice.
2. Get a Teacher
If you don’t already have a violin teacher, find one now! A good teacher will be your best friend on your violin journey.
By the time a violinist starts teaching, they have already invested years of study, hard practicing, and performance time into their own studies, and have a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to teach you everything you need to know.
If you’re having a hard time finding a teacher, try the Orchestra programs at your local schools to see if they can recommend anyone.
Or get in touch with your local or regional symphony and see if they have a list of available teachers from the orchestra.
Decide what you need to specifically work on, so you’ll know what kind of a teacher you need. For example, if you’re preparing for a college audition, you don’t want to get at teacher that works with only beginners.
3. Establish a Daily Practice Routine
You know the saying: “If you don’t use it, you lose it!” This is so true with violin as well. I think that this is one of the hardest aspects for most students of violin to grasp and incorporate into their playing.
It’s not nearly as beneficial to practice for a couple of times a week for long periods of time, than it is to practice smaller amounts of time, each day.
The best thing you can do is make time in your schedule to play at least 5 days each week. You don’t have to practice for hours!
Start with a reasonable amount of time, say 15 minutes. Stick with that for a month, and see how much your playing improves.
As you become more comfortable with a daily routine, you can schedule in longer practice sessions, or more frequent ones, as you need to.
4. Listen First
One of the best ways you can learn a new piece or even an etude is by listening to it first. Ask your private teacher to play what you are learning for you, and you can even make a recording of it on your phone or computer.
Also, try looking the piece up on YouTube, and see if you can find a video of someone playing it. There will probably be a variety of videos that you can watch with different pieces and different artists playing them.
6. Play for Others
OK, now that you’ve listened to other people play your piece, and you’ve recorded yourself playing it so you could listen; now it’s time to recruit others to listen to you!
You’ll be playing your piece for your teacher, but take that a step further, and ask your family members and friends to sit down and let you play for them. You could also offer to play for your church, or for a nonprofit event, just to get your name out there.
7. Mix It Up
Don’t spend all of your practice time on just one piece, or one etude. Divide up your time so that you can cover at least 2 different projects in one practice session.
Not only does this work better for your concentration but it will also help your playing on your other repertoire as you work on similar technical skills in a variety of literature.
It’s always best to warm up with a scale or two, so your fingers can wake up a bit. Then move on to a small section of an etude that you’re working on.
Small sections are better because you can focus in on the sections that you need to work on the most, instead of trying to play the whole etude at one time.
Create one small goal each day to accomplish in your etudes. After this, you can work on sections of the piece you’re learning.
8. Reach Out
Find other violinists! We’re everywhere!
Look in your local churches, orchestras, schools, community bands, jazz groups, street festivals, and maybe even your next door neighbor.
One of the greatest joys for most musicians is making music with others. There is a lot of music written for 2, 3 and even 4 violinists to play together.
Start a small chamber group where several of you meet each month and play music together. You never know; you might just end up playing some gigs together, like a wedding or a party, and be able to earn some money while having a lot of fun.
It’s so important to just…rest. Once you’ve gotten a good routine going with your practicing, make sure you take at least one day off a week, to rest your muscles, your brain, and let things just settle in a bit.
It’s amazing, but your subconscious keeps processing all the work you’ve put in that week, even if you’re not playing. You can walk away for a day or two, come back, and are able to play the very things that you so frustratingly could not, the week before.
10. Brownie Strat, Eric Clapton, $450,000
It’s the “Layla” guitar. This ’56 Strat was with Clapton during Cream and Derek & the Dominoes and now resides at Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project in Seattle, WA.
9. Gold Leaf Strat, Eric Clapton, $455,000
Another Clapton guitar on the list (it won’t be the last, or even second to last!) – this gold leaf Strat was built for Clapton by Fender master builder Mark Kendrick, purportedly because Clapton wanted a guitar he could “hang in a museum.” EC used it on the Legends tour in ’97 and again in 2001 on the One More Car, One More rider tour, after which it was sold to Christie’s Auction House.
8. Gibson SG, George Harrison and John Lennon, $570,000
This guitar was used by both Beatles between 1966 and 1969, making appearances on Revolver and the White album.
7. Fender Strat, Stevie Ray Vaughan $623,500
SRV’s Strat “Lenny” was named after his wife, who bought him this circa ’65 composite Strat for his birthday in 1980. After SRV died tragically in a helicopter crash in 1990, Vaughan’s brother Jimmy donated the guitar, which was auctioned off and sold to Guitar Center.
6. 1939 CF Martin, Eric Clapton, $791,500

5. 1964 Gibson ES-335, Eric Clapton $847,500

4. Blackie Strat, Eric Clapton, $959,000
Blackie is probably Clapton’s most iconic guitar. As the story goes, Clapton bought six Strats in a guitar shop in Texas. He gave three away (to Harrison, Townshend, and Winwood) and parted the other three out to build Blackie, a guitar he used faithfully for 15 years. Like many of his iconic guitars, Clapton auctioned this instrument off to raise money for the Crossroads Rehab Center.
3. Washburn, Bob Marley, valued at 1.2 million
Somewhat infamously, Bob Marley didn’t own very many guitars. Though an exact number is not officially known, this Washburn became a somewhat infamous instrument. Supposedly one of the first electric Washburn guitars ever made, Marley rarely played this Washburn and gave it to his guitar tech, Gary Carlsen. The guitar has been classified by the Jamaican government as a national treasure.
2. 1968 Fender Strat, Jimi Hendrix $2,000,000
Hopefully no explanation is needed when we say that this guitar was one that Hendrix played at Woodstock (um, for example, on the “Star Spangled Banner”) and Paul Allen paid $2m for it to be housed at Experience Music Project in Seattle, Hendrix’s hometown.
1. Reach Out to Asia Strat. $2,700,000
In 2004, tragedy struck in the form of a fiercely destructive tsunami, affecting several nations in the Indian Ocean.

The guitar raised ALMOST $3m for Reach Out to Asia, a charity formed to help victims of the tsunami.
The Violin is one of the most popular instruments in the String family. There are more violinists used in symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras and other ensembles than any other stringed instrument.
Violins are the smallest in the string family and because of this are the instrument most frequently chosen by children than any other stringed instrument.
There are numerous benefits to playing the violin that enhance our well-being that involves more than just learning a new skill.
1. Physical Benefits: muscles, posture, coordination
Musicians are athletes of the small muscles. This means that every time you play the violin, you are actually working out much like someone would at the gym or on a playing field.
All of the muscles in the neck, arms, shoulder back, and even core area are used when playing the violin.
If one’s position is correct while playing and they remained relaxed, over time these muscles will strengthen just as if you were to do sit ups each day for a month. The upper arm areas especially are worked when playing for long periods of time.
Another direct benefit from correct posture during violin playing is better posture. Coordination and fine motor skills are improved as well when we play the violin. Violinists are multi-multi-taskers.
ou will be amazed at how much organized your multi-tasking can become after playing the violin for a little bit.
2.Mental Benefits: concentration, memory, discipline
Memory skills improve in violin players without us really even knowing it.
Our brains and even our subconscious minds are learning the notes to a piece while we are physically learning it.
What ends up happening is that one day we can all of a sudden play some of the piece without looking at the music. As our playing improves and we play more and more pieces, we end up memorizing more because our brains are getting accustomed to working that way.
You will even find that you’ll be able to remember other details in life better, such as phone numbers, names of strangers, or certain dates as a result.
Again, our bodies do what our brains tell them to. If our brains aren’t engaged with our physical movements, it will take a lot longer to learn skills and pieces, and the risk of losing interest can set in.
It’s always best to work for smaller amounts of time that are used with both your physical and mental resources, than longer periods of just rote playing and letting your mind wander to other places.
3. Emotional Benefits: self-confidence, connection, joy
One of the most visibly emotional benefits that come from playing is the increase in our own self-confidence and respect. Learning the violin is hard work! It takes an incredible amount of endurance and a “keep at it” attitude to learn everything needed to play well at any level.
That feeling…is indescribable really, and ends with a “Yes I Can” every time, and the more this happens, the “No I can’t’s” are said much less.
“Joy comes in the morning”, or in this case, with each note.
Violinists who keep their craft alive, are actively playing with others in a band, a chamber or symphony orchestra or even just a few friends, have a greater sense of joy in their lives, as opposed to those who don’t.
4.Social benefits: new friendships, cultural enrichment, & community engagement
There’s no doubt that playing with other violinists and string players enhances one’s social life.
Rehearsals offer not only time to practice, but also time to meet and connect with people outside of our normal circles.
Finding a good and trustworthy teacher who serves as a steady and supportive mentor is one of the greatest experiences that any violinist can have.
A relationship like this goes beyond just learning how to play the violin many times, and plays a vital role that provides a confidant and emotional support system for students.
Most symphony orchestras have players from all over the world playing in them. Many good violin jobs are found in countries outside of the USA and often, pay better.
Violinists all over the world, offer their playing in different segments of their community, whether it is their local schools, or service club meetings, or playing for funerals or even for the sick and those in hospice.
It doesn’t take hours of practice each day to play successfully. All it takes is some dedication, patience, and willingness to be open to new experiences and people.
Although different from going to the gym a few times each week, it’s much the same in that the more you do it, the more you reap the benefits.
Music without Violin is just a fairy without her enchanted wand. The world of music gets its genuine sense and achievements from that of the rhythms and the beautiful documentations.
