    Do you have a teacher that you physically go to lessons or do you use the online teachers or both?? I had a teacher for about a year until he passed away and he got me well started but now because of my remote location I have been using online teaching in the form of YouTube and Tutorials etc. How about you???

    I’m using books and watch videos. I’m sure I would do better with a real teacher though

    I have a teacher in person. I think on line is great when you don’t have another choice. But with a good teacher, always better in person.

    I have a personal teacher-I don’t think I could learn well online but find online tutorials helpful

    I have a private real life teacher that I see weekly and I also watch a lot of teaching on UTube and am all signed up for the Learning Program.

    I have a teacher in person but am also signed up here on Violin Tutor pro. I think it is a good combination but I have not told my real life teacher that I am “cheating” on him, ha ha. You get an awful lot for your money on violin tutor pro. For the cost of like half of a lesson you have a whole month of access here.

    I hope to get a teacher in person eventually, but I think I need to practice what I already know to do first in order to make the best use of their time and skills. The videos and discussion on this site are very helpful in refreshing my memory. The music theory I’ve learned by studying piano has helped, too.

    I have an in-person teacher, but I also signed up for Michael’s lessons. My teacher knows I watch a lot of folks playing on YouTube, but not about Michael. Also, I told him I had joined the Adult Violin learning group on Facebook for encouragement. He likes that. I think it’s important not to just have you and your teacher be the only ones involved in your learning that actually know anything about violin. That is why I am excited about the group classes. It takes a community to raise a violinist.

    I have a private teacher- personally I think you can learn better with a teacher there to show you your mistakes and to show you the techniques- In enjoy the online tutorials helpful as an addition to my lessons or as a reference to go to

    I have a private teacher for piano but played violin for 8 years in the 1960s and just recently restarted, so have a lot of work to refresh my memory and intonation work. The online videos have been very helpful with this and with filling in gaps in my understanding of reasons for some things, as has my piano study. The online group classes are a great option until I can handle new challenges and am ready to progress beyond what I already know but need to practice more.
