I've been currently playing the violin for about 2 whole months. In this time, I have fluently progressed through Suzuki Violin Method Book 1 on my own, without a primary teacher. I mainly watch online lesson videos and get a little help from my friend (played 6+ years) every other week. So I'm almost done with Book 1 and I skimmed through Book 2 and it looks intimidating. Any thoughts or suggestions to help me bridge my transition from these two books?
The first Suzuki book 1 is pretty easy. The second one doesn't seem that bad to me either, just not something that can hold my attention. I think it's because they're geared to people who are also learning how to read music for the first time. I've been using the exercises to perfect technique and posture, then playing other pieces that I like when they get too boring. While I can play through the music, mastering things like stretching my 4th finger, bow management, different bowing styles, and hitting all of the bell notes on each piece makes it a lot more interesting.
