When it comes to rosin for you instrument, one size does not fit all! Rosin for stringed instruments come is a variety of different formulas to suit different instruments, playing styles, and the climate in which you live.

Violin and viola players gravitate toward a rosin that is harder, while cellists generally select a medium rosin. Bass players go for the stickiest rosins because they provide extra adhesion and grip on the thick strings.

Rosin producers have many "secret" formulas for making their unique products - some even contain particles of precious metals such as gold. If you're sensitive to rosin dust, there are hypoallergenic rosins that you can purchase.

The cello is a member of the violin family and resembles the violin and viola, but is much larger and has thicker strings. The cello has been in existence for more than 450 years. Many consider the cello to be the closest sounding instrument to the human voice. Many famous composers, including Bach, Beethoven, and Hayden, composed music for the cello, from solo pieces to complete orchestral arrangements.

Today, the cello is used in many different musical genres from folk and bluegrass to rock and jazz. Some of the world's most famous cellists include Pablo Casals, Jacqueline du Pre, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Yo-Yo Ma.

If you've finally decided that the time is right for you or your child to take up the violin, you're going to need an instrument. At JSI, we believe that renting an instrument is your best option if you're a beginning student.

Purchasing a quality made violin is a major investment so you want to make sure that you have sufficient experience and are ready to make a commitment to continue with your instruction. It takes time to develop your "musical ear" which helps you distinguish the qualities of one instrument from another.

The modern violin is a descendant of the family of instruments known as "Viol" and included the rebec and lira da braccio as well as other medieval instruments. Andrea Amati and the Amati Family of Cremona are most often credited with the designers of the four-stringed instrument in the 1600's. Cremona became the home to some of the most famous violin makers in the world -- Amati, Guarneri, and Stradivari.

The violin underwent several changes over the next few centuries including the addition of a chin rest and the development of the modern bow. In today's music scene electric violins are becoming more and more popular and are making an appearance in a wide variety of musical genres.
