Question about Plumbing
The pipes in my house vibrate whenever we run the water, hot or cold
The problem is called water hammer it happens because water lines have become lose inside the walls. Generally because pipe straps have loosened or even broke, or not enough of them were used at time of installation letting pipes rattle against them selves or walls and so on.

The natural expansion and contraction of the pipes due to the hot and cold water is what makes the pipes sing. I'm not aware of a fix without repiping.

There is a loose washer in the faucet...this flaps as the water goes through it and makes the vibration...
You either need to replace the faucet or the cartridge (washer) in the faucet that valves the water...
This will stop that vibration and hammering sound
