    Hey everyone! Sorry for all the issues this past week. We have identified the problems and have fixed everything. To make the site run fast and efficient, we have decided to move all community features to a new Violin Tutor Pro Fanpage on Facebook. Also we have updated our Violin Tutor Pro homepage to have updates of what is going on, including a new blog article, new lessons and more. Let me know if you guys have any questions!

    Meh! I am just entering this comment so that I can enter the contest. I’m just being brutally honest!

    I hope you get it fixed soon! It’s definitely disappointing when groups rely on Facebook, especially when many people don’t have or use it anymore.

    So if I don’t have a Facebook page (and don’t want one) I’m out on the social forum that you used to have???

    Yeah. It’s sort of the same thing with the Google + livestreams. Unfortunately Google + is very clunky and I’ve never been able to get it working well, and that leaves me unable to participate in the livestreams. I’ve suggested alternatives, but this is probably easiest for him, and all!

    True, I have been reading & replying to posts to get contest entries. I am glad I started, as I am interacting now with other members, and becoming a member of this community.

    I miss seeing what everyone is enjoying in their violin life, it helped to motivate me and I liked the interaction between members.

    So is this forum going to be discontinued ?

    I know you must have thought it through with the members and the violin tutor pro team. But I just wanted to think through one concern here. This forum and discussion being hosted on the violintutorpro website has its own advantage. First of all, it is increasing the SEO value of the website. Then through google search about the most commonly discussed violin questions the new violin enthusiasts will be landing on the website through the forum topics only. And as the number of discussion keep increasing in the website it will give a authoritative value to the website in the field of violin tutorial websites. But on contrary, hosting it on facebook groups, does not make it appear on the search results.

    I know you must have decided because one of the pros of facebook group is the ease of accessibility and notification system inbuilt in the feed facebook but I just wanted to share my concerns since I love how the website has taken off over the last year. This feels so amazing to be a part of it. I have seen the website grow from the very initial days and feel it as my own.

    Thank you

    Yes, I agree with some of the others. I very much like the forums. I have facebook, but not a huge fan of it. It seems like some of the discussions on the forums are more productive with actual content. I think most people just post random things and overload the page with pictures on facebook, which don’t get me wrong has it’s place. You still want to have fun. I’m sure it’s all being done in the best interest of the site and fans. I’m sure trying to manage all these different pages can be a lot of work so I get it.

    I’m sure that watching this website grow has been amazing. I would’ve liked to have been a part of it sooner! That being said, I know that this site and its operations has a long way to go before it becomes the big, amazing community that it’s meant to be.
    Your contests are what drew me to your website, and seeing what you’re trying to do has kept me here! I’m sure you guys will figure something out to redesign things in a way that it’s best for both the community, and in a way that the website itself can handle it.
    Shoot, you’re known for your contests, you could even hold a website redesign contest! That’d be a fantastic way to at least gain new ideas, and at most, find someone to help you out with areas that might not be your forte.

    I’m not sorry for the music pun.
