Young Writers in Action: Piano and violin

by Gabriel, 6, NSW

Violin - photo from pexels.comI am learning piano and violin. It is lots of fun. I will tell you what are the similarities and differences between the piano and violin.

Piano and violin are both made out of wood and strings, and it is hard to play them. Both need teachers to tell you how to play them.

A piano is a keyboard instrument, but a violin is a string instrument. A violin needs a bow but a piano does not need a bow. You will need to stand up when you play the violin. When you play the piano, you need to sit down.

I like playing the piano the most. The violin is hard to play, because I have to hold down the strings.  I want to keep learning the violin because I want to be a professional violinist.
