It took me about 2 months to learn to tune the violin on my own and I would insist on the teacher letting me tune my own violin in lessons but allowed him to help me (I was 10 and a pretty do it yourself kind of kid). To tune the violin and bow at the same time, it took a bit longer. I don’t remember exactly how long but I could do it by the end of the year. I couldn’t tune it with the pegs in this way until I got a new violin because it was a terrible violin. I actually hurt my wrist once trying to get one of the pegs to turn.
Usually when you see people tuning with the pegs, they are fitted properly to the violin.
