Have you wanted to learn to play the violin or viola? If you have, here is a snippet from a post about how to correctly hold and play these beautiful instruments:
"Have you ever noticed how many string players tend to carry themselves with a curvature of the spine and sloping shoulders and back, even when not playing the instrument? Its amazing how we can develop physical habits unconsciously. The thing is, you’d never see a dancer develop a slumping posture over time. Sure its in their skill sets to develop a super fit body but its also part of their skill sets to learn how to use the body optimally. When you think about it, why shouldn’t such considerations as optimal body movement be part of a string players skill sets?"

Why is it important to practice? Here's a comparison of practice versus non-practice:
|Student 1: Practices 20 minutes a night, 5 nights a week||Student 2: Practices between 3 and 4 minutes a night or even not at all|
|Student 1: In one week of practice, that equates to 100 minutes of practice||Student 2: In one week of practice, that equates to between 15 and 20 minutes of practice.|
|Student 1: In one month of practice, that equates out to 400 minutes of practice||Student 2: In one week of practice, that equates out to between 60 and 80 minutes of practice|
|Which student would be a better player? Would know more? Expect to be successful in music?|
