Posted by Revelle Team on May 21, The violin is known for its rich, distinctive sound. Classical melodies, haunting sonatas, or toe-tapping, hand-clapping country and bluegrass music can all be produced on this versatile instrument. However, the violin is most closely associated with orchestras, and the symphonic—and very structured—music of the great composers. Therefore, many new students wonder what popular songs if any can be played on the violin. But, you can actually learn to play many of the most popular songs from a variety of decades and genres on the violin. In fact, the violin has been used in all types of music all around the world for centuries. Especially now, with all of the forms of crossover music, both the electric and acoustic violin are now being used by a number of big name bands and famous artists.
