How to Find Free Online Violin Lessons

If you are one of the many people searching for free online violin lessons, then it should not take you long to find teachers offering many great lessons on the Internet. There are some great teachers available whether they are well known for not and they are based all around the world.

Some people spend a lot of time hunting for the perfect teacher, one who suits their personality and one that can fulfil both the technical and musical demands they require.

A quick alternative to this is to look for a recommendation from another musician. It may be a good idea to browse some blogs, websites or forums that target music and in particular violin lessons. Sometimes it is very easy to see a highly popular teacher mentioned on many different platforms. It is a safe bet that the teacher with the recommendations is of a good quality.

Personally I recommend looking for a well-known or famous teacher. They often have incredibly professional websites with downloadable resources, books, PDF's, videos and backing tracks for you to jam along with.

Let's face it, they have a reputation to uphold and they will not be giving poor quality violin lessons whilst there name and reputation is at stake.

With any of the internets free online violin lessons it is a good idea to look for some type of continuing education choice. So if you enjoy the lessons then there is the option to continue learning and playing for as long as you wish.

Beginner Violin Books

Many people often ask me if they will need beginner violin books. I guess people want to know if that's the best method of learning or maybe they think that online courses are not substantial enough.

It was about time we learned the truth on this matter.

There are many, many excellent violin tutor books available in music stores around the world. Most of them are written by incredibly accomplished violinists and they offer a wealth of information for you to visit as regularly as you like.

They will never become redundant and people will always write and publish these great pieces.
However I must say that courses like the one we recommend include far more content than what a book does. There is literally months and months worth of content online, not to mention hours and hours of outstanding video material.

You simply can't put all of this in a book, if you did it would be too heavy to pick up! LOL! What the online courses offer is far more than just the beginner book. They offer you the whole course that will allow you to master this instrument.

Beginner violin books are fantastic but for the same price would you rather have a complete online teacher, method and resource?
