What is sound and How is sound produced?

Sound is a physical entity, unlike noise which is the perception of sound. Sound is an high pressure wave front through a medium (such as air, or a liquid such as water, or a solid), wherein the wave front is followed by a reciprocal pressure differential behind it. Sound is produced when something disturbs the medium and sets in motion the molecules in the medium. Frequently, (no pun intended) the wave front/reciprocal entity occurs as an oscillating wave, wherein there are a series of wave fronts (peaks in pressure), followed by wave valleys (lower pressure). The relative height of the peak translates to how much energy is in the wave (how great is the pressure), and the closeness of peak to peak (spatially and temporally) indicates the pitch. Noise, is not a physical entity, but is the mental perception of the physiological response to sound. A wave front is converted from mechanical energy in our ear into an electrical impulse in the brain that analyzes the wave information. The interpretation of the wave front is subjective and the brain may interpret the wave signature as speech, music, clapping, gunshot, hum, etc.

Is a viola high or low pitched?

The viola is an alto instrument, and is the second highest in the traditional string family (violin, viola, cello, double bass). Its range is from C3 (an octave below middle C) and has a very expansive upper range extending around 4 octaves higher. So the general answer to the question is that the viola is high pitched, but its lower register is often one of its signature characteristics.

Where can you find plants for viola da gamba?

This question makes no sense. The Gamba is a baroque stringed instrument, not something that grows in a garden. If you mean plant as in being manufactured, their not, as it is an instrument that has limited apeal. You have to find a lighter that makes them from scratch.

How do you play a viola?

Basically, the viola is played like a violin. Hold the instrument up with your jawbone, via a chin rest and shoulder rest, and finger with your left hand. Bow with the right hand. Music is writen in alto clef--a different clef from all other instruments. Generally, slightly more pressure is needed for bowing and fingering than for violin due to the thicker strings and slower response. Also there is a bigger reach in the left hand because the string length is longer. For best results, I would strongly suggest getting a private instructor. Oh--and practice, practice, practice! and you have to like what you are doing or else it's gonna be really hard. If you are interested in learning the viola, it'll be easy.

It is true, playing the viola requires practice and an instructor to teach appropriate technique. Without an instructor it is all too easy to develop bad habits that can cause bad sound or even physical injury like carpel tunnel! There is a lot more that goes into actually playing a viola than can be told on an answer here. It has to be experienced physically.
