I'm on Day 7 learning the violin, and I've been studying exclusively with Fiddlerman's material. "Lightly Row" and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" were my first songs, and I am now practicing to ensure that I've memorized and refined "Amazing Grace" and "Scarborough Fair". I'm also working on my first scales and trying to improve my bow control.

 

What were the first songs you learned on the violin? What were you playing by the end of your first month?

My 1st piece i've learned was Clint Masell - Requiem for a dream. birthday_balloonI played it at night in a silent place behind a graveyard, along with my friend's cell phone =) It was in 2008 (Ah, beautiful times amuse). Then, when i really started to learn violin with my teacher, at the end of my first month i played a song from Russian cartoon, that is not much more difficult than "Twinkle, Twinkle" LOL!  rofl But that was much more productive =) roflol

The first songs I learned were Twinle Twinle Little Star, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Lightly Row and the Can Can. Those were pretty much the songs I played for the first month of lessons. xD

The very first song I learned was Edelweiss followed by the Tennessee Waltz.  I found waltzes and airs relatively easy to play and the tunes kept my interest up.

"Twinkle, Twinkle" was first for me, as well. I've been playing with "All Creatures of Our God and King," once I stumbled across it while monkeying around one night. I''ve scratched my way through all the Christmas music that FM has made available over at Violaman.com (or the Dark Side, as we like to call it), and most of them are actually recognizable. Not good, mind you, but recognizable – like a toddler's drawing of a horse in the wrong color.

I started off with the Suzuki method and played almost every song in there in order. So I started off with various variations of twinkle twinkle and by the end of the month was probably playing "Go tell aunt rhody"

Twinkle Twinkle, Mary Had a Little Lamb, and The Sound of Music.  I think there were other songs in between but I don't remember them anymore.
