Several years ago, an orchestra teacher at the school my husband also taught at, mentioned a computer program that you could play an instrument to and it would grade you. I can't remember the name of the program, but thinking about it just made me wonder about the possibilities of learning with today's technology. If you consider the XBox Kinect and its ability to recognize a player's movements to interact with a game... what if a program was developed for teaching violin? Something that could recognize your posture, the position of the bow, and listening to your intonation and give you feedback based on all of those things... wouldn't that be amazing?

@AndieKae 

That would be very very cool.

About 15 years ago.. I bought a keyboard...and a midi cable and piano software.  I would do the lesson on the piano and afterward I would get a "grade" I would play over and over until I got the song right and then the "crowd would go wild" ... 🙂  there would be applause feedback. 🙂  

It was a cool program..both hands had to have timing correct... I made the mistake of loaning the program to someone and I never got it back... LOL.. my piano glory ended.. 

YAHOO...12 years later....... in walks a Violin... oh yea!!!!

That's so sad about your keyboard! But yes! Something like that would be so fun with the violin. Though, of course it still wouldn't compare to the support and encouragement we get here, or the help of an actual teacher, but still a fun aid for practicing.
