Having taught for nearly two decades and played for almost three decades, I like to think I’ve been through a lot of different courses and methods on the violin. Here at Musilesson, we have created and compiled the best parts of many methods in order to help you learn to play the violin as quickly and easily as possible.
Logical progression is our goal, so we have put together a step-by-step path to growth for prospective students. Therefore, I invite you to start from the beginning and work your way through each step so you gain all the knowledge you need to keep moving forward. Even if you’re already learning violin, feel free to check out each section in order to make sure you haven’t missed anything in your development.
Before we get started on the physics of how to play the violin, I want to get you off to the best possible start. We’ve put together a section aimed specifically at giving you the nuts and bolts, and thought processes you need to hit the ground running. This section will really help you get the most out of this course so check it out.
I’ll stop here and let you start learning in a fun, methodical way!
