Hello fellow fiddlers and violinists, my name is Tara and I'm from the Chicago area. I've on,y been playig. Violins seriously for a handful of weeks, but I look forward to learning more and more about this instrument here and as I go forwards with my self-teaching. My plan for the future is to practice and to go for a lesson every few months to check that I am not developing any bad habits as I go.

That's all I have for now, happy to be here!

Hello and welcome to the stringed insanity, you will find a lot of helpful people here.

And some great tutorials on playing violin. I too am a beginner and have found this site a great help.

Hope you enjoy the violin as much as we do.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

 Welcome to the forum.

I am so happy to meet you.   Good luck with the forum and all the videos.  A lesson to keep in check is AWESOME.

If  you have questions there are a lot on the fiddle chat to help you and here on the forum.

Feel safe to post  your early beginning videos.... I think those that post and stay connected do the very best.

Good luck.. happy Playing.

Toni from Cali. :)

Welcome from Alaska.

Welcome aboard Tara!  You'll find no end to the useful resources here.  Never hesitate to ask questions - even if they sound foolish to you ( I know my questions were like that - and often still are! )

Enjoy your journey with the violin !

Bill

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

The name, "Tara", caught my eye, it's my oldest granddaughter's name.

As other's have said this is a great place to learn and gain musical knowledge with all friendly folks here.

We're happy you are here, welcome.   violin_girl
