I have chosen to research the history and making of the violin, the main sub questions are:
  1. What was the first Violin ever made? How was it made? When was it made?
  2. Why do the old Violins sound much better than the modern day Violins?
  3. Who created the Violin?
  4. The most famous Violin maker?
These sub questions will ensure I cover all the historical information about how and who and when the violin was created.
I will use resources such as books from different library’s, YouTube for interviews, Google for researching main points and ideas, my violin teacher who will give me some background history from her point of view and experience as she has played since a very young age to an extremely high level.

I will use my knowledge about violins especially what I have learnt since I started playing the violin 7 years ago.

What was the first Violin ever made? How was it made? When was it made?

There is no official ingredient used to create the varnish which is visible on the top layer of the Violin as history says that the particular ingredients are highly likely no longer available....
