Did You Know...About Violins
*~ If you are worried that violin practice takes up so much of your time that you are too busy to exercise, don’t worry! Recent studies have shown that playing a violin burns approximately 175 calories an hour. That is around 2/3 of a Snickers bar!

*~ The most expensive violin in the world was made by Giuseppe Guarneri in 1741. This extravagant violin was appraised with a value of $18 million.

*~ Violin bows typically contain 150 to 200 hairs. Violin strings were first made of sheep gut. Other materials violin strings have been made out of include:  nylon, horse hair, solid steel, stranded steel, or various synthetic materials, wound with various metals, and sometimes plated with silver.

*~ Over 70 different pieces of wood are put together to form the modern violin.

*~ The modern violin, believed to derive from the Medieval Latin word vitula, which means ‘stringed instrument’, was created in the 1500s by Andrea Amati in Cremona, Italy. Andrea was an Italian luthier and was asked to build the violin as a lighter alternative to the lyre.

*~ Violin’s are known to come in a variety of different sizes to suit every player’s height and size. Did you know that the smallest size violin available is 1/64! This is perfect for children aged 2-3, therefore, they can start learning the violin around the same time as they learn to talk.

*~ The world’s largest playable violin was constructed by 15 dedicated violin makers from Germany. It is 4.27 meters tall and 5.22 meters wide and sounds 3 times lower than a conventional violin.

*~ The world record as the fastest violinist is still held by Ben Lee. Ben record "Flight of the Bumblebee" in an amazing 58.515 seconds an average of 15 notes per second.

*~ The Italians call the Violin a “kit”. There is no reason for this – just a fact.
