I live in Tumacacori, AZ in a very rural area, no violin teachers around! I would have to drive an hour just to find one and that is not an option for me! I am 22 years old and a full time volunteer in a religious eco-community. I am hoping to have a chance to win the $99 dollar violin. ūüôā¬†

 

Any suggestions on good websites , besides yours!, where I may find free online videos? Thanks for the wonderful website!

Gods blessings,

SanSkritA

Youtube has some pretty nice tutorials, but the nice thing about here is that fiddlerman is super awesome and will answer your questions directly. He also has skype lessons, so if distance is a problem for you, that might be a good solution.

Welcome SanSkritA,

Great to hear that you are psyched to learn. As Oliver said, there is plenty available out there. If you have any special requests, let me know.

I just started playing and can't find a teacher anywhere around where i live. I just bought a violin, it's actually the same violin that you showed in you're video. Except mines mahogany and it was $89 because it only came with one bow. It would be cool to have more than one fiddle though so i hope i win the violin.

I've been playing the violin for 3 months now and I'm hoping to get that black violin. ūüôā ¬†$99 is already a big amount in the Philippines that is why I got one for like 3,600 pesos and its like 50-70 dollars I guess. I love it because it's my first violin but I am unsatisfied of the sound quality ūüôĀ I hope you get a good teacher because for me I'm so unlucky I got a crappy teacher who gets in and out of the room during classes :/

Can I assume that all I have to do to see the drawing is to sign into the forum as usual at 1 pm ?     No other bells, whistles, plug-ins, etc. ?

No Oliver,

For everyone, all details are on THIS link. Please help me spread the word.

Be sure to be on Fiddlerman TV tomorrow at 1PM Eastern time. Hopefully Fiddlerman TV will spread to more events later. This will be my first attempt.

Sadly I am traveling this weekend and won't be able to make the live show. It would be really cool to have them periodically though! If you use vokel, you can also field live text and video questions.

hi i liked your facebook hopeing to win the raffle, i currently have had a rough couple weeks...wrecked my car, have zero money or coverage to fix it , and well for some reason it came across to me that i need something to loose myself in, a better hobby, something that can calm me yet challenge me, i have a acoustic guitar but it didnt really do it for me ,played for a little then it was more of an on and off hobby . There is just something about the violin that thrills me , gives me chills and goose bumps when i hear it, it sends me somewhere else emotionally , im not sure if me going on ,on about this will make my chances greater to win this i just thought you should know :p thankyouSmile

I'll pick several people 1 - 5 in case I can't reach the winner or the person doesn't want the violin anymore, but I'll do everything that I can to get a hold of the winner.

@ Lilthius - I love your description of what the sound of a violin does for you and if writing a post describing why you deserve to win was the task to win, it would probably have be yoursSmile
Welcome to the forum, good luck, and thanks for the post. Look forward to following your progress in any case.

I agree, I plan on making regular shows. Good way to encourage each other, talk about the violin, play and learn. Would also love to give online master classes. Anyone interested in participating in the first one?

I would totally do a Master Class, but I am decidedly not a violin master. A Pokemon master perhaps.
