How The Violin Can Be a Source of Inspiration in Your Life


The word violin is derived from Medieval Latin vitula meaning stringed instrument. The first violin was developed by 500 years ago Andrea Amati in the 1500's. Andrea was making a lighter version of the lyre when he came up with the violin. After the invention, he started the Cremonese School of Violin Making, and in the 1600s, Antonio Stradivari became a pupil. He was later to alter Amati's original design to come up with a more enhanced sound and extend the range of the instrument. Other than the history, here are interesting facts that you should know about the violin.
