For My Fans: Beginner Violin Tutorial #1
Tour Dates, Tickets and VIP Upgrades!
Hey everyone! This video is dedicated to my fans who have written to me saying that they would like to start playing the violin but can not afford a teacher and don’t know where to even start. I was blessed enough to have been able to afford private lessons for a number of years, so I would like to pass on some of that blessing and offer my help to those of you who do not have the opportunity to take private lessons 🙂 So here is my little tutorial video to try and give you guys a starting point! This video is for COMPLETE beginners, so if you already have begun playing, you probably won’t find this useful. In this video I talk about choosing a violin/bow/case, accessories you will need, book series, and some of my own experiences. Please know that this is coming from my experience and opinions and is in no way the final authority on how to approach starting out. In fact, here’s a great web site to give you guys a place to search the forums for answers to questions that I don’t answer in this video:
The web site that I talk about for buying a violin/supplies is:
As I said, this is just a suggestion since I have ordered from them in the past and have had a good experience, but be sure to do your own research before you shell out any of your hard earned money! 🙂
Well I hope you find this at least somewhat helpful! It’s really hard to be concise on this subject because there really is a lot to talk about, but I tried to stay as on task as possible. I apologize if it’s hard to follow. Anyhow, there will be more tutorials to come where I will demonstrate proper posture, bow hold, violin hold, specific techniques, etc for those of you who have written to me about those more specific things.
Please leave additional questions in the comments section for this video instead of sending me a personal message, thanks!
Have a great week everyone, thanks for watching, God Bless! ^_^
