I learned as a child without ever using any tapes or markers on the finger board. To me they would interfere with learning to listen for the correct pitch and make the tiny adjustments at the fingertip in order to be in tune. Also, might cause visual dependence on them rather than developing the muscle memory needed if used for too long. The first time I saw the tapes on finger boards was when I was in orchestra with beginners who had not had lessons and were using school instruments.
