Advice from Our School Musicians
We are very proud of our violin players and know that their experiences will help others to persist and get the most out of their rewarding musical journey...
Which instrument do you play and when did you start?
I play the violin and started in Year Three.
What do you like about playing an instrument? Why did you choose the guitar?
I chose the violin because most people who play the violin make beautiful music. I love the sound the violin makes; it makes me feel peaceful and calm. So far, I enjoy playing on two strings the most.
