Benefits of Learning the Violin/Cello

The violin, viola, and cello all originate in Italy and were first built in the early 16th century. For hundreds of years, these instruments have been learned and enjoyed all around the world.

Outside of the primary benefit of learning a beautiful-sounding instrument, there are many secondary benefits. These include improved memory and attention span, better overall mental function and health, sensory development, improved social skills, a sense of belonging, and an emotional outlet.

Playing one of these instruments also comes with physical benefits, such as stronger upper body strength, improve motor skills, and better posture.
