Excuse me asking, but I never did know. What is the difference between a viola and a violin? In the picture in our music classroom, they look identical.

Two instruments> Awesome! I only play the one, flute. Ha, my brother tried playing it and couldn't make a sound. So what if I couldn't use the guitar either? *grumbles*

I've played the violin for eleven years, and I just started playing the mandolin this summer. Go strings!

My cousin plays three instruments and she's awesome at all of them. She plays piano and bagpipes (they actually sound great if they're played by a professional) but I can't remember what the third one was. It was a really uncommon and weird sounding one.
In addition to playing several instruments expertly, she does tennis, pro horse jumping and racing as well as helping out on her family's farm. Heck, a wish I could do all the things she does.

I play a few instruments, but my favourite's the cello. I'm kind of a music nerd though... my user name's just a chord progression.

The viola's lower than the violin, basically. Like the violin's highest string is an E, and the second highest is an A. The viola's highest string is an A an octave below the violin's.

Good luck! I know how bad examines can be, and I especially know how bad piano exams can be.

i play the violin and flute. moreso the violin, since i've been playing it for longer, but i haven't practiced or made any real progress on either of them for a while.

i'd love to play the piano, though. i think I'll just sit in on my brother's lessons, when he starts again--if he starts again--and learn it from there.

AHHHHHH. I'm so happy for you! I always got the worst nerves before so when it's over I do some serious celebrating (and you're sure to pass. I messed up 2 of my pieces so horribly you wouldn't believe in my grade 4, and still managed to pass)

I got the results for my exam today. I'm so happy, I got an A!!! My brother got A+ though, that put a slight damper on my celebrations.

Was that for your music exam? We have different grades here: Pass is if you get 100 points, Merit is if you get 120 (Maybe 130) and Distinction is if you get over 140 (or 130). Any lower you fail.

Oh, we just have the basics. A+, A, B+, B and so on. I think my cousin did the point thing for his piano theory, though.

Well that sucks. Why didn't they get someone who could teach violin?
