Even after the first lesson, I felt like I really knew something. "The American Fiddle Method" from Mel Bay steps you through a helpful introduction to the instrument, right and wrong ways to hold your hands, and more. You'll be playing music to the applause of your pets, parents, children, spouse, and anyone else in your living room in no time. Assuming your pets can applaud, that is.
Go ahead. Buy it. You spent all that money on a violin. Learn how to play it!
The DVD included is excellent for teaching adults, particularly. My adult son
will certainly benefit from the instruction within.
