Learn To Play The Violin

If you're looking to learn how to play the violin then researching the online approach should be one that you take serious time over.

There are a lot of incredible benefits to this option. Just a few would be.....

  • Price - incredibly low
  • Opportunity - learn from a world renowoned master
  • Variation - videos, books, jam tracks and 24 hour support

However I feel that the most important part of your journey if you want to learn how to play the violin has got to be, as always. You're practice routine!

If you don't practice you will not progress, even if you are learning from Paganini himself. But, develop a strong work ethic and your progress should remain consistant and rapid.

  • Aim to practice on a daily basis.
  • Little and often is always better than rare, marathon runs!
  • Set immovable times that are allocated to practice.
  • Divide your practice time up into sections like: warm up, scales, pieces, exercises and finish with improvisation for example. This helps you keep focused and interested.
  • Set some goals. This could be to learn music x by date x.

Many people find learning an instrumnt to often be a lonely task. So as you learn to play the violin perhaps get together with other violinists or musicians to play, talk, swap techniques and music. Interaction with other players can help you progress very well.

To some people who are just beginning this can seem like a very intimidating idea. However I have always found musicians to be very patient and they love helping out the 'newbie'. I think this is because all players were beginners once and they know exactly how it feels.

If you're not ready for that step just yet, then again this is where the online approach is great.

The program Violin Master Pro allows you to play along with what are called 'Jam Tracks'. They are musical pieces that play through your computer and allow you to play or jam along in the privacy of your own home. Problem solved.

If you are serious and want to learn to play the violin, develop a good practice routine and take a look at the online option.
