    Hello Everyone,
    Hope everyone is having a beautiful day and I was just wondering how does the violin affect your mood?

    I got into the violin when I heard Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling. I seen how she can move with the violin and I said one day I want to do this. After doing college work, I will listen to her play just to relax and smile. The violin soothes my mood and makes me feel like I had a great nights rest. How does the violin affect you and do you have any favorite violin artist?
    Thank you everyone for reading the post,

    Usually makes me happy, wether I play or listen. I used to watch The Little House on the Prairie, and was inspired to learn.

    I remember Little House on the Prairie, I use to watch that when I got out of school. It is neat to read about how certain things inspire others into wanting to do something. Learning to play instruments has always been important and even more so now with having an autistic son. My son loves to listen to instruments and with his eye sight being bad an instrument is something he can play and relate too. My son is currently learning to play guitar, but doesn’t soothe him like the sounds of the violin. So my kids also inspire me to try new things like instruments because they are learning right with me. I wanted to say thank you for reading the post and responding. I really enjoyed reading what you wrote and I remember the show now. Violins are just a peaceful and relaxing sound to hear.

    Hello Szilva,
    I have always found playing instruments relaxing, I have acoustic guitars and electric guitars that I love. I use to play the bass clarinet and want to get back into that as well. All three of my kids want to get into music, so I highly promote it. My oldest son is autistic and music just calms down, when he is upset play Mozart, Bach or Beethoven with math problems he relaxes. So music can do amazing things. Lindsey is what got me into wanting to play violin, I use to be a cheerleader a long time ago and would love to add dance with the playing of the violin. Lindsey is like my idol and would love to play like her one day with being unique. Thank you so much for reading the post and talking to me. I appreciate all of you and the help you all give.
    Thank you,

    Depends on the song, some are soothing, but others can also pump me up. I guess it may also be what I associate that song with, for example taylor davis’s version of the attack on titan theme gets me excited easily.

    Hello ConstanceS9,
    That is very true, I have heard violin songs where there is a lot screeching. It turned me away from violin and then I heard some real beautiful violins play and I was just taken away. If they are played correctly they are so beautiful and breathtaking. I will have to listen to that, I am always interested in learning about new artist who play violin. Thank you so much for responding and I wish you the best,

    Well it depends on what I am listening or playing that determines how I feel….I usually feel a new sense of freedom.

    It depends what piece it is… and even more so, what tuning it is in; I find the A=432 Hz very relaxing regardless of what is being played. One piece that always evokes profound and unexplainable feeling of “longing” is the Vocalise by Rachmaninoff.

    I love a lot of violin and fiddle music, but certain pieces that are not my taste that are in many curriculums or progressions trigger memories of trying to perfect playing music that I didn’t enjoy hearing. Also, many sad pieces I prefer to avoid playing or listening. I try to find alternate music that works on the same skills.

    Playing my violin reminds me of the gift it is for me to be able to play.
    No matter what kind of mood I am in when I begin, playing brings me to a “mood” that transcends the events or people that I encountered that day. My world becomes larger than my home or my job.
    I feel blessed.

    It usually, with the right song, just enhances and clarifies whatever I am feeling/experiencing at the moment. I’m a bit socially/emotionally different and music is the one of the only things that can get me to experience emotion consistently and the violin is my favorite instrument to listen to; probably because of the vibration/resonance it has. It’s powerful and nuanced and I usually love listening to it. I’m especially fond of music that is narrative like TSFH and Lindsy Stirling, as you mentioned. Some of her newer songs that she wrote herself are quite awesome.

    Hello Everyone,
    Music has always been there for me when I experienced many things and still continues to be there. I can be so stressed out and just hearing an instrument of any sorts would just relax me. Would help me sleep and even calm my kids. Now all my kids are into instruments and have one of their own. So a very amazing way to feel good again. I love reading what all of you write and sorry I haven’t responded back in a while, but all of you are amazing and keep playing music. I wish you all the very best in all you do.
    Thank you for reading the post and responding,

    I understand Hank Williams, Sr. was a very lonely man, and he shared his feelings through his music.

    I play in 432 Hz tuning and it always relaxes me and I feel very peaceful after I play for a while.

    Listening to violin can give me any mood there is….classical, which is what I listen to the most, has such an array of moods. If I want to really get amped up I will listen to Roman Kim (check him out on you tube). He is a very energetic, creative player and also creates visually interesting videos. Hungarian gypsy violin always makes me happy even if the mood is a sad one, as it tends to always bring you up at the end.
