Playing the viola is a workout for the eyes and the mind, but mostly the arms.
“Can we not just have a *little* bit of the tune?” you cry to your conductor, among a sea of accidentals. No, you may not.
Yes, it's the bane of your life. Yes, you have to learn a whole new clef to play your instrument. But other musicians will secretly find this impressive and intriguing.
No one ever told you about the constant mockery.
Forget sports: all you need is a string instrument and some pacy fingering to get those appendages in shape.
Once you get used to being locked in 'viola neck' all rehearsal, you'll be a virtuoso before you know it.
Unlike the fifty violinists battling for the orchestra leader spot, if you want that front desk space, IT'S YOURS.
Violists: you're essential. Never forget that.
As a viola player I can affirm all the above! I would add one, though, that’s even worse: your instrument has no standard size so you have to literally try on every single instrument before you buy one. At least it’s truly yours by the end of all that :)
