I'm new here and new to the violin. I purchased a used student violin, tuned it, and started playing March 1st.
I gave a go at learning from YouTube and ViolinLab. I also picked up a couple of books: Essential Elements for Strings and Suzuki 1. I've decided I need to find myself a local instructor here in Columbus, Ohio. A little pedagogy and some personalized instructions just might go a long way, eh? That and a chin rest that fits!
I think I have Twinkle Twinkle down. Ode to Joy is coming along, and I'm learning The Force Theme and Reel Saint-Antoine for the fun of it. My dream is to someday play Caprice 24.
