  1. Thank You Sir Todd, for this site.
    I am an aspiring violinist and your site thus far has help me learn some basic songs quite quickly, also I am a quick study when it com3 to hands on learning. But that aside, I have had one violin teacher to teach me the basics and then became busy.. However, I did keep up with my basics and was able to dive into your tutorials because of that and the fact that I am good with numbers and I have played guitar by method of tabs before. I really enjoy learning this way and recommend you and this site to all beginners like me. And too, I practice 30 minutes 5o an hour a day and am picking up and practicing two songs a week… Well right now one song a week but going to two a week and on Friday’s going to practice both. Would you recommend this avenue so I don’t become stagnant and keep enjoying the learning process? Again I thank you for creating such a wonderful aide to violinist of all calipers. Sincerely -Chris-

  2. Chris, that sound like a pretty good system. Its good to have lots of new music to learn so you don’t get bored. Make sure you are paying attention to your technique. If you currently don’t have a private teacher, there is a risk that some bad habits will creep into your playing. A good way to avoid this is to video yourself playing and look for anything odd looking.

        1. Things like not bowing straight, bending the left wrist, tension in the shoulders, collapsing the pinky and thumb on the right hand, or anything like that. You can see them clearly if you know what to look for.
