After watching Sarah Chang in concert , anyone would want to be her and take up violin lessons. So here I have my young daughter who wants to be the next violin player only to be told that most people end up playing the viola instead. Yes , there is a huge difference , and a viola player has a small part in a concert of a violin player , they are like filler players we were told by a friend who plays the violin professionally here.
But like any good parents , we went hunting for an instrument for the daughter at Guitar Center, electric viola and found quite a few to choose from. And one can buy a very expensive one or one that fits your budget. Love shopping online.
