In this course we will learn to play violin from the ground up. We cover everything from how to hold the violin and the bow, how to read music, and all the essential music theory material that you need to know; meanwhile we start working on beginner violin songs together, which include easy violin songs such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and we slowly tackle more complicated songs as we grow into playing the violin over the span of the course.
Our aim is to enable you to teach yourself violin and turn you from a novice into someone that can play a violin with ease, with the ability to read notes, perform a variety of specialized techniques on the violin, and play songs on the cusp of the intermediate level.
I’ve been teaching how to play a violin for beginners over the span of the past couple of years. As a matter of fact, the material covered in this course is what I teach my own students over their first year or two of private lessons with me; the same material that has helped them flourish in the subject and slowly but surely become a violin master. And of course, all of that material is here, available to you anytime, anywhere…
The question of how to learn violin by yourself has been circulating in online violin communities for years. Many enthusiasts have been looking for an affordable option that provides a comprehensive violin tutorial, specifically starting with violin songs for beginners. As a result, we made sure to create a course that takes the students by the hand and walks them step by step through the material, starting with easy songs to play on violin, then providing the best beginners violin training as far as techniques, theory, and training regiments covered, in order to propel the student into taking on tougher and tougher music for violin with relative ease. Excerpts such as easy violin sheet music have also been included in the course to provide the best possible learning experience for the student; as well as that, violin notes chart figures have also been used in order to provide clear communication in some of the instructional and tutorial videos.
One of the great benefits of the course is that unlike with private lessons, you have the freedom to learn at your own pace. This means that if you are someone who, for e x a mple, is looking to learn violin in 30 days, you have the option to do so by spending time on the material every day, as well as constant practice. On the other hand, if you are looking to play online violin in order to be able to learn at a slower pace than traditional training, perhaps due to circumstances such as having a limited amount of free time, then you have the option to do that as well.
Since we wanted to present a well rounded course and provide you the same experience as taking private lessons with a teacher, we also included various material regarding the day to day usage of the violin, such as how to best preserve the instrument in a violin case, how/where to buy a cheap violin, how to tune the strings on violin using the fine tuners and the pegs, and more.
In addition to having all of these resources available to you, this course also provides you the ability to directly ask me any questions you have about any of our online violin class or tutorials, or anything at all that you find to be either confusing or challenging. I always get back to every single question as soon as I possibly can, and I thoroughly enjoy having a one on one dialogue with you, in order to further assist you on your violin mastery journey, just as I would for my private students.
Who this course is for:
- Those who want to learn playing the Violin, starting either from scratch or with a tiny bit of experience
- Those who are willing to put in the work and practice! Might sound like a cliche, but practice truly does make perfect
- Those who are looking for a comprehensive course, that comes as close as possible to a private lesson experience
