As for the hard part – it’s getting used to your instrument and the body of the violin. There are some good tips and tricks to getting familiar with your instrument at first while still feeling its weight.
Your first lesson can be as easy as sitting beside your violin. That’s it – learn the right ways, and do it while getting your head and back straight and strong.
The second part is learning the specific movements required to play the violin at speed, so learning it with a teacher helps get you good at it even more quickly.
My main technique is that each time I play the strings, the whole fingerboard of the violin is touching the neck.
I think you get used to it quickly and I can’t even see the difference in how I sound with my playing.
How long does this take to learn?
It’s about 20 minutes, tops. Some people are impatient and only get one lesson, others just get four, but that’s fine by me. I always finish my lesson right before I leave the shop, and I know my technique better than any guitar player who thinks I still need to learn to play guitar, so why should I have to learn to play violin?
It’s one of the most fun parts of my job. As you might have guessed by now I love learning new things, not just from books and teachers, but also by doing it with my friends.
But to be completely honest, it’s hard to stay organized, so I guess I will have to stop doing that! 😉
Why should you work with me?
I am the guy who will give you great tips and tricks to improve your skills as a violinist when you hire me, but I get paid much more than some of my guitar students and guitar teachers. At this level, you’ll get paid the very highest!
I guarantee that your violin experience will grow at a faster rate than with any other violin teacher. You’ll love learning from someone who is on the verge of perfection, and will be more enthusiastic about improving your skill level, too.
Also, I am one of only three guitar instructors in the whole world to teach beginner violin at a professional level, so if you’re interested in learning, or just want to learn more about what professional violinists do on a daily basis, you should really get in touch with me.
