String instruments are the largest family of instruments in orchestras and come in different sizes and shapes. You have smaller string instruments such as the violin and viola and bigger instruments like the cello and double bass. Each string instrument is unique and provides beautiful sounds that can complement any musical project and orchestra.

The cello looks like an oversized violin with thicker strings. This instrument produces rich tones and is said to sound like the human voice the most. This expressive instrument has quite a following as it can carry the melody or bass. It’s an instrument you play either sitting or standing.
Slightly larger than the violin, the viola has a richer and warmer sound than the violin. It’s played the same way you play the violin but it has some of the rich presence the cello has. Learning the viola can be a fun experience with the right instructor.
The violin is super versatile and vibrant. The sound a violin makes is highly recognizable and sound great by themselves or within a group or ensemble. You can find the violin in a wide variety of music genres from classical to rock.
