    Hezelcarl….
    I was in the same boat once upon a time. My first violin was a $50 eBay unit. I used for just over a year to learn the basics. A few months ago, I finally upgraded to a Viviano Vitale through Michael Sanchez and Superior Violins. They offer a Try Before You Buy program and a payment plan. If playing violin is your passion, then try a violin from Superior Violins. You deserve it! I know I’m happy I did. I love to practice now and my skills show it.

    I have a lot of time to practise.. But my “A string” keeps coming off 🙁
    But I’m buying new strings for the first time, so this shall be interesting. Might look for a video of yours to teach me how. 🙂

    My current challenge is that we have someone staying with us who works the overnight shift. I should probably get his schedule, in order to avoid waking him up, but I don’t like practicing when others are in the house at all- makes me feel like I have to “perform.”

    Fast learner learns faster not because they are brighter but because they practice more.

    Hi, my name is Michele. I am using “I Can Read Music, a note reading book for violin students. I need an instructor to use it, so I have been a bit frustrated. I’m putting it away and going to just practice. It’s helped me learn the sting positions, but not the timing. I love my new Damiano violin as much as my 35 Roth.

    This is a great article—five-year-old Anna is fantastic!—, and is helpful in alleviating some of my concerns about practice time. I wonder, though, if being in professional school at the same time as learning violin for the first time will make a difference for the worse. It seems to me that starting out, my big concerns would be physical form and scales, both of which could easily fill the low-time-allotment end of the prescription suggested by Michael (60 min/wk). At any rate, great suggestions in this article. Thanks!

    When it comes to rosining the bow, do I only need to scratch the surface of the rosin the first time using it and then after that just simply rub the rosin cake over the strings?

    I play along with youtube videos for practice, concentrating on smoothness and clarity of notes.

    I don’t even have a violin but all throughout the day, I think back to the direction I’ve learned in the videos, hoping to give myself a better lift off if I do find myself with a violin in my hands.

    I usually have my violin sitting out and practice for about 10 minutes many times throughout the day. I am a college student, so I spend a great deal of time in my apartment doing homework. The practice time gives me a chance to take a break from the reading and writing.
