Why learn the violin in Singapore?

Scientists say that playing an instrument in children between the ages of six and eight years affects the development of motor skills, which is beneficial for long-term changes in the brain. Learning to play an instrument requires good coordination between hands and audio and visual stimuli. The earlier they start to play, the greater is their connection. Playing from the young age promotes healthy maturation of connection between motoric and sensory areas of the brain, creating a foundation on which they will build skills later. Playing develops not only cognitive skills, but also communication, enthusiasm, personal style, and many other things.
Violin dominates the world of classical music. During the 20th century, violin fits into other genres such as jazz and pop-rock and has been present in the traditional folk music. Wherever it occurs, violin occupies a prominent position. It sounds best in the role of a leading instrument that “carries” a melody or showing its virtuosity. Playing the violin requires an excellent hearing. Violinist himself determines pitch so that brings to developing of the inner ear, sense of intonation and melody. Also, it develops musicality and even a sense of aesthetics and improves the levels of concentration in children, which is a big problem today.

The best time to start playing the violin is between the sixth and ninth year. Exceptionally gifted children can begin a few years sooner at the Violin Academy of Singapore. The start of learning is a little more demanding than in other instruments as it requires mastering the holding of an instrument and keeping good coordination of both hands that simultaneously perform entirely different movements. Parental support is also very important because children expect quick results and find it difficult to accept that, after a month, they still can’t play the way they imagined.

The best and most persistent violinists might one day achieve a successful solo career. Good violinists often play orchestral music. Violinists are an important part of every symphony orchestra. One possibility is playing in smaller chamber ensembles such as a trio or string quartet. There are successful violinists in the world of modern music too, and various cultural-artistic societies can not be imagined without the soloist on violin.
