  1. This is great! I used to play music and I learned 9 instruments as a teen.
    Now I have some time off and I decided to learn a bit of violin. Your
    lessons are great! So clear and I can really see how its coming together
    already. Thank you!

  2. I am a trained Indian Classical Violinist… Learnt it for 22 years…
    However, I always tried to play western music, thinking how difficult could
    it be, now that I know to play Violin… Well, obviously, I was wrong and
    failed because of some basic differences between style of playing the
    Indian Classical and Western Violin …. Now I have started learning
    through your Videos…. Thanks a lot… YOU ARE A WONDERFUL TEACHER…

  3. I don’t know if I tuned it wrong, but my e string sounds really loud and
    high pitched when I play it. Am I bowing wrong (I think it kinda sounds
    scratchy but I’m not sure)? Or is it something else?

  4. Hello dear Alison, I have started watching and following your videos. they
    look very practical, it is my dream to learn playing violin but i am just
    about to learn it from scratch. do you think if following your lessons
    online would be enough in that way if I practice them hard? and do you have
    any advice for getting the proper type of violin for a beginner like me?
    thank you so much,

  5. thank you for these wonderful lessons. They are the first of all the things
    i have reviewed on You Tube to help me really get it. I can now do the
    scales and have a good idea how to handle the bow. Altho I am taking a
    beginner violin class none of these basics were covered adequately. This
    way I can learn at my own pace. A Godsend! Blessings and Aloha from Hawaii!

  6. Thank you very much!! So basically my arm can’t move back anymore, and if
    it doesn’t really fit or if it’s weird I just move the violin out a bit
    more, right? I just still don’t really get where exactly to put the violin

  7. What do I do if my highest note string sounds screechy? Am I doing
    something wrong? Or is there something wrong with the string? Please
    respond!!

  8. I dont see what im doing wrong. When i try to use my bow to play, it just
    sounds like im rubbing my finger against the string. How do I make it lound
    like a violin should sound

  9. guitar strings… EADGBE cool.. been doin for years…
    bass strings… EADG hummm… thats ok… kinda old stuff
    violin strings… GDAE are u nuts???!!!! why d heck is tht
    downwards😂😂😂😂😂

  10. One thing I’m not sure of that you seem to not mention is bow tension. Is
    there an ‘optimal’ range for how much tension to put on the bow strings?

  11. Thanks for these. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly 20 years and I’m just
    picking up the violin and these really help me get started. Cheers!

  12. Hi I just got my Violin a Mendini I’m just a beginner and want to learn the
    violin please help me get started Thank You..!

  13. Question are you supposed to use the entire width of the bow or is it at an
    angle so that only a fraction of the hairs are on the strings? Thank you in
    advance :)

  14. Thanks for the help, I just started learning the violin. It is quite easy
    because I have played the saxophone so I know a decent amount already.

  15. your way of showing all about violin is too good to be true 🙂
    You are the most beautiful and skillful violin teacher i ever met and learn
    very quick and easy with your help
    Thank you very much
