Welcome to our Viola Online Advisor. |
This guide aims to help complete beginners and existing viola students (and their parents) gain a clearer idea of what playing the instrument is about, and to assist in choosing and caring for a new instrument. You may be wondering whether it is a good idea to take up the violin or the viola – while there is certainly a wider repertoire for the violin, the viola does have its own unique timbre, and also the advantage that being the less popular choice, it is usually considerably easier to find a place in your local orchestra!
Our Online Advisor extends to several pages – you can jump from section to section using the index below, or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
