    Hello, there

    She played the violin.
    She played violin.

    Is there any difference between these sentences?

    Re: the+musical instruments

    They usually mean the same.

    'She played (the) violin in the school orchestra.'

    Unless you are referring to a particular instrument:

    'She played the violin which Elgar had once owned.'
