Take an in-depth look at: Introduction to String Instruments.

This course gives students a chance to explore the diverse world of string instruments. The lesson begins with a bit of string instrument history before delving into an easy to understand explanation of how a string instrument generates sound and the importance of a resonator. Students learn about how and when some of the most basic string instruments were first invented. Students are given basic definitions of the three basic groups or families of string instruments, covering ‘tapped or hit’, ‘plucked or strummed’ and ‘bowed’. Then, the course focuses on some of the cool stringed instruments from each of those three families.
