Hello! So I have a few questions about the viola...Is it advisable to pick up the viola without any musical background? Is the viola a worthwhile instrument? If one wants to pick up the viola, would it be more advisable to start with the violin first? Thanks!
some fundamentals in violin will be very helpful. But viola not quite the same as vioin. Even bowing technique between violin and viola is not the same. So for violin players to convert to viola, relearning new things is a must. Also its difficult to find a cheaper small size viola that sounds like a viola!
