MyRDV - Bridge The Gap

“The true mission of the violin is to imitate the accents of the human voice, a noble mission that has earned for the violin the glory of being called the king of instruments”

~ Charles-Auguste de Beriot

“You don’t have to be a professional to play music. Close your eyes, take a deep breath.. And let it out. Let the violin dance, the guitar fascinate, the flute sing, the piano composes. Just. Let. It. Go.”

~ TheBakaViolinist

“Music is what feelings sound like.”

~ Author Unknown

“Of course the most difficult thing on the violin is always intonation. The second one is rhythm. If you play in tune, in time with a good sound that’s already high level. Those three are the main things.”

~ Ruggiero Ricci

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”

~ Victor Hugo
