Viola Rental

The violin and viola are easy to mistake because their sizes aren’t very different, and the pitches they each create also sound very similar. The two are also played in nearly identical ways. In truth, the viola is only a fifth below the violin in pitch range, allowing it to have a considerably richer sound, perfect for playing harmonies.
