Sound Blogging


The main difference with Svend’s Violin and the beginning of Svencino is innovation. There is so much still to be discovered and improved on within the world of violin and music. For sure, there are many things that are mostly cast in ‘stone’ in terms of the form and design of the violin but there are just as many things that have ample space for improvement.

Identifying the things that can be changed and setting out to improve on them is exactly what Svencino is all about in the quest to making music more accessible and easier to engage in for all who find solus and joy in and with it.

The things that we have already worked on to explore sound and music making cover a range of different areas.

Svencino String Instrument Range

The Svencino Range of String Instruments was brought to life after almost a decade of being inundated in Cheap Chinese that is NOT conducive for playing and learning to play the violin. These instruments have been part of our training work and growing in popularity with a handful of really pleasing wins with up and coming violinists playing on them.

Training & Violin Explained Workshops

Since our first initiating training startup with the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra Company in April 2007 (starting with Svend's Violin) Svencino has tirelessly worked with a handful of different Music Outreach Programs, Private Schools and private individuals to grow the number of able people in South Africa who are able to work on String Instruments without damaging them or making it hard for people to learn and play on.
