Fid­dle facts

Play­ing the vi­o­lin burns ap­prox­i­mately 170 calo­ries per hour. For­get about your work­out and start prac­tic­ing harder! Vi­o­lins are typ­i­cally com­prised of spruce or maple wood. Typ­i­cally, stu­dents will start learn­ing vi­o­lin at a young age with a 1/32 or 1/16 size vi­o­lin.
