Fine Viola

what is easiest to play out of the string family?

i really would like to play a string instrument, and i want to know what would be easiest for a beginner. {even though i know all three are very difficult...}
{viola,cello, and violin}

well...yes all 3 are very difficult. all 3 make wonderful sounds once you learn to play correctly. but it actually depends on what you want to learn, which instrument's sound you like the best. all 3 require different techniques to play well. on a violin, you probably won't have to worry too much about producing a full sound as the instrument itself is bright-sounding to start with. as long as you learn to make a nice sound on it, you should be fine. viola needs extra weight in the bow (the 'stick' you use to play it with) to ensure a good, warm tone. cello needs even more depth and weight in the bow than viola because it's big and has much thicker strings. you may find cello easier if you're not very small-sized and you've got strong arms (+ fingers...you need that strength to press the strings firmly).

so i don't really think there's an 'easiest' for beginners. you learn different sets of skills. a violinist usually takes up viola to improve his/her sound quality and technique. perhaps the hardest one is viola? because the viola is actually too small in size in terms of the ratio to its string lengths. to make it in proportion (if you take the ratio of size to string lengths of the violin as reference) would require a 20-inch long viola, but your standard viola is only 16-inches. this results in added difficulty in obtaining a good sound out of it. plus it reads in alto clef most of the time. so unless you're somewhat proficient in reading the clef, it might be better to start with violin or cello (violin uses treble clef and cello bass clef). but then again, if you simply love the warm, velvety sound of a viola, by all means go for it. it's never too difficult to learn something :) .
