I was just wondering why we need to warm musical instruments before playing them? Is there something to do with the air molecules inside? Vibration? Physics?
Any ideas would be great! Thanks!
I remember for the violin that you had to keep it in a warm place so the strings don't go out of tune and it keeps them well maintained, or something like that.
It's basically like foreplay before sex.
If you let them go cold, they go really flat.
I don't 'warm' my viola?
I do try and keep it at a regular temperature however (don't put it near a heater), so it doesn't get crazily out of tune.
