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.

Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

I think it's wonderful you've decided to start learning to play the violin -

especially during covid craziness. 

Have you checked out all of the great Fiddlerman help/tutorials for beginners? 

Wonderful members here - will help answer

any questions you have and maybe direct you to more information. 

You have started on an exciting adventure!

@tempogenix -

About your chin rest... you might want to check out the Fiddlershop - they recently came out with a new one! 

They have quite a few different shapes and heights, also for different positioning on your violin. 

You can always give them a call & discuss it.
