About This Class
In this class, I will take you through the simple basic steps of how to start playing the violin.
I started learning to play the violin 3 years ago at the age of 27. I didn't know how to read sheet music or play any other musical instruments, and given that most violinists start playing very young I felt doubtful whether I was going to get the hang of it all.
Rather than giving up, I adopted the mindset that it might take me longer to learn now than it would have maybe 20 years ago, but it wont be impossible. 3 years into it and I have already cleared my Grade 3 exam and starting to prepare for my Grade 5 exam.
Violin can seem daunting, but if you get the basics right and spend time getting comfortable with your instrument it can bring tremendous joy.
In this class I will walk you through the following basic steps
- Introduction to the instrument
- Getting started
- Holding the violin and the bow
- How to read sheet music
- Finger Placement
- A Major scale
- Play a small song in A Major
