Violas

The viola is slightly larger than the violin and it can reach lower pitches than the violin as well. Violas are a great addition to any orchestra because of the range they can play in. Very versatile and functional, the viola is a great way to advance your skill set when it comes to string instruments. Although many people overlook this instrument when searching for their next challenge, the viola is a rich and powerful instrument that any orchestra or string outfit should have. 

The viola is the middle sound of the string family, as it sits comfortably in between the violin and the cello. With the addition of a viola to your musical group, you can achieve a more full-bodied sound and tone. Imagine the complex numbers you can play after outfitting your string orchestra with a viola.
