Thanks to a generous grant from MusiCounts and the kind support of Yamaha Canada Music and Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, Owen Sound, our students will soon be able to get started on learning how to play the violin. @MusiCounts @TDCanada @YamahaCanMusic @LongMcQuade

“Why the violin?” you ask.

The violin is one of the more expressive, moving, and enjoyable instruments to play, but that is only scratching the surface. Although one of the more challenging instruments to learn, the violin offers numerous other benefits.

Studies have discovered that learning the violin benefits:

  • mental function and health
  • attention span
  • social skills and a sense of belonging
  • communication skills
  • self-esteem
  • self-awareness
  • posture
  • upper body strength, and improved motor skills
