Hey, Julianne here.
If you are looking for violin lessons for beginners, then it probably means you’re in the same position I was when I started to learn violin: in love with violin, but intimidated by it… I’m glad you’ve found this website and I strongly suggest you keep reading…
Because this is my whole learning story. The ups, the downs, what things didn’t work and finally one online course that did help me achieve my goal. And the course only cost me $30, can you believe it?(Violin Master Pro, click here to visit their website) Who said it’s impossible to learn on your own?
Ever remember the first time you got excited listening to the wonderful violin melody? I was 8 years old, and would love to be a violinist then. But truth be told, I quit after only two lessons, because I couldn’t stand my mean teacher, she laughed at me and shattered my dream. I didn’t touch my violin since then. I didn’t even want to listen to any violin stuff anymore.
But I guess I’m still in love with violin. It was on the way back home from a concert last April, I thought I should definitely learn to play the wonderful instrument. This time I would never quit, no matter whatever other people say. So I went to a first tutor who turned out to refuse to teach people who are starting the violin over the age of 13, which means I didn’t have a chance. Then a couple more turned me down. Finally I did find one, but since he only cares about the money, what he did was just showing of. It didn’t help me at all, and I threw away 200 bucks.
I was about to quit(again) but suddenly a thought came into my mind: find some online courses to teach myself? I don’t know why I’d never thought of it, but it’s a good idea! I turned to google and found a lot of useful tips and articles out there, and also youtube videos helped me a lot!
Then the problem is, I guess if I really want to make some progress, I might need a whole package of courses including step-by-step tutorials so it won’t be hard to follow. I turned to Google to see what was available and I have to say there are SO MANY CHOICES out there, some hugely expensive some worryingly cheap, so I checked out a load of review sites and a couple of violin forums to see which one is the best, and I found a winner finally: Violin Master Pro(click here to check their website). I was pretty happy with it as I got what I want: it showed me exactly what I should be learning and in the right order too. Considering how hard it is to find a good tutor without even mentioning the cost of each lesson($40-$50 each), they were unbelievable! I put all my hard work into it and now I can play songs that I want (not complex classical pieces!), and that’s good enough to make me happy, since I don’t intend to be a concert violinist or anything like that.
I enjoy each time when I play the most wonderful instrument in front of my family and friends. I love it!
Hope you enjoy learning violin!
