Did you know that Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven all played the viola? It is a special stringed instrument that sits comfortably between the violin and cello and produces beautiful sounds. As the middle voice in a string section, the viola is similar to the alto voice in a choir. In fact, the viola uses its very own clef, called the alto clef.
