I'm a bassoon player and composer who would appreciate advice on writing for strings. Please comment some general rules and techniques for string composition. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hey everyone! I am a 6th grade viola player and I wonder if its weird that I practice every day and still dislike classical music. Bach, Handel etc. were all great composers, there works are amazing, but I just don't like to play any classical music. Please give your thoughts on this issue. 
Hello there, I'm a thirteen year old violist who is currently in my school's symphonic and full orchestras. I've been told by some of my peers that "I put too much rosin on my bow and that doing so could make what I play sound muddy". I don't know if this is true or not but I usually put a lot of rosin on my bow and it ends up sounding just fine. another question I have is, how tight is a bow supposed to be before you play? I've been told by some that it's supposed to be super tight and some have told me that it should be super loose. I usually make it loose, cause then I'm able to play fortissimo without what's coming out of my instrument sound scratchy, while when I try to play loud when my bow is tight, it sounds squeaky and scratchy.
