Classical music wouldn’t be what it is without string instruments. The haunting, beautiful sounds they make resonate like voices singing.
Those strings for which these instruments are named, produce the sound by transmitting vibrations into the wooden body, which sings and vibrates along with the air inside its body.
“Music goes beyond words in its power to express human emotion. It is both the form and the content of human experience, being both exquisitely precise and richly ambiguous. For children, it constitutes the ultimate education and preparation for life.”
String instrument are created with a combination of materials, craftsmanship, varnish, aging, and a little luck. Musicians of string instruments take great care of them, and you often find them dusted with chalky powder from the bows and patches of rosin.
