Importance & Relevance of our Violin Graded Exams
As our student’s Violin instrumental skills progress, growth in music theory and musicianship becomes more and more important. It is certainly important in helping him / her to perform with sensitivity, understanding and confidence. Lorraine Music Academy aims to give all our students a thorough understanding of the building blocks of music. This is done by firstly starting with the basics of rhythm and notes. Then next going on to cover harmony and counterpoint, composition, and a broad knowledge of western music. It includes composers and their works, structure, style and period. They are also trained to prepare for scales and arpeggios, sight-reading and aural tests.

It is necessary for a student to possess a VIOLIN of their own, in order to practice at home. Regular practice at home is important after each learning session at the Lorraine Music Academy Center. It is important because the student needs to get ready for the next learning session.

Violins are string instruments. They are usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifth. Violins are also known as fiddle. Indeed, they are the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments. They include the viola, the cello, and the double bass.
A violinist or a fiddler is a musician who plays the violin. The violinist always draws a bow across one or more strings which thus produces a sound. He also produces sound by plucking the strings with either hand, or by a range of other techniques. The fingers of the other hand stop the strings in order to produces a full range of pitches. Musicians in a wide variety of musical genres play violins. These genres include Baroque music, classical, jazz, folk music, rock and roll, soft rock, popular music.
In fact many non-Western music cultures all over the world, including in India, play the violin. Orchestral accompaniments and also South Indian classical music – Carnatic Music uses violins as solo instruments. Moreover, popular Indian film makers use violins broadly in film music scoring. Furthermore, ethnomusicologists have observed the widespread use of violins across Asia, Europe and the Americas. In many traditions of folk music, the tunes are not written but are memorized by successive generations of musicians. They are then passed on in the oral tradition.

Sizes of Violins
Children use smaller string instruments than adults. Indeed, violins are made in so-called fractional sizes for young students. Apart from full-size (4/4) violins, 7/8, 3/4, and 1/2 instruments are also available. Moreover, finely made fractional sized violins, mainly smaller than 1/2 size, are extremely rare. While related in some sense to the dimensions of the instruments, the fractional sizes are not to be literal descriptions of relative proportions.
A 3/4-sized instrument is certainly not three-quarters the length of the full size instrument. The body length (not including the neck) of full size, or 4/4 violins are 356 mm (about 14 inches). A 3/4 violin’s body length is 335 mm (about 13 inches). But a 1/2 size is 310 mm (about 12 inches). For the Viola, the violin’s closest family member, its specified body length size is in inches or centimetres rather than fractional sizes. Thus a full-size viola measures 16 inches (40 cms).
Well-known producers of violins include Yamaha, Stradivarius, Hofner, Stentor, Cecilio, Klaus Mueller, Karl Willhelm, Knilling, Amati, among many others.
