    Hi! I know that when it’s humid out (even if you never step foot outside) your violin can become very out of tune. Today, I took my violin out of the case and noticed some of the strings were very loose. Of course I had to tune it. At first, the pegs wouldn’t stay when I turned them. I pushed them in a tiny bit, which helped some. Finally, my violin was fully tuned and I watched one of your lesson videos. Not thirty minutes later (at the end of the video) my violin was already sounding out of tune! Being January, it’s rarely humid outside, but it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow and the moisture will have some effect on the sound of the violin. My question is, how do I keep my violin in tune when there is a lot of moisture in the air so that I do not have to re-tune it every thirty minutes?
