A video demonstration on how to change a string on a violin;

First off you’ll need to make sure that you are replacing with a string of the correct thickness, modern day string sets are labeled so you shouldn’t have a problem at all. Place the end of the string with the metallic circle into the tailpiece. Align the string to the notch in the bridge and the notch at the top of the fingerboard. Thread the other end of the string through the hole in the tuning peg then turn anti-clockwise to add tension and tune the violin string.
