Hi my name is Jaden, and I suppose you could call me a musical prodigy I excell in learning music way faster than the average person for some reason, and I believe it is one of the gifts god gave me. I currently am in my 6th day of learning the violin, and I already have all the first position notes down almost perfected, along with arm vibrato and a tad of finger vibrato. I practice about 1-3 hours a day depending on my schedule. I currently have a Cecilio cvn-Black named Eleanor as my starter violin. I was wondering what strings would be a good upgrade as well as a bow because the two that come with my cecilio aren't very good. thank you!
Most definitely! I plan on doing one either after a week of progress or month/etc so I can see how far I have come. I currently teach myself through a book but every other day I have a bunch of friends who live close who mentor me, being they have been playing for 4-8 years. I hope to have a video as soon i can!
Now that is awesome, I myself learn fast, but i will never call myself a prodigy , i learned all the fingerings the first day i got my violin, learned vibrato in my first week, and finished amazing grace on the same week.... on my second month, i learn some pieces like mostly from Paganini, but i did all of those fast because i had no patience ......and i mostly have nothing to do but practise.... Plus, most of all, the pieces i learned are literally pieces like fragments.....that's when a lot of members here encouraged me to take it all slow to learn a whole piece....so that's what I'm doing right now, I'm still practising something that is very hard, but i am now focused on that single piece, and do everything, no matter how long it will take, just to master it.
Now, for the strings, I would recommend "overture ultra"....they are great! I wouldn't say that they are cheap, but good strings are expensive, but i will say they are the "cheapest of the expensives"(oximoron ) , and for the bow, you can try a very flexible yet durable carbon fibre bow from the fiddlershop (www.fiddlershop.com)

TVE - Glad you stopped in. Hope your stay is long and enjoyable. In your rapid progression, don't forget to post what you are doing with vids and the likes. Perhaps you have stumbled on a method that might bestow brilliance in learning to us all.
BTW - I have been playing violin about 11 months. I can spell vibrato on my keyboard, I know the QWERTY keys on it to perfection, and I type nearly about 2 hours a day. When I text, i can fly through the keypad like its nobody's business. I guess I am a Prodigy typist.
Seriously, we look forward to see and hearing your rapid progression, and Welcome to our little community.

I'm sorry, but if you would have made this post from your phone, then I would have been impressed.
I can change a diaper and keep my two toddlers from fighting at the same time. I suppose I'm a dad prodigy?
