Lessons for beginners we start with learning how to take care of the violin, how to tune it, and what all the parts are called. Then we go over how to hold it, proper posture (which is very important), left hand position and bow hand position. We talk about bowing and go over some basic rhythms to practice on different strings, and then start using fingers on the fingerboard to learn basic scales and simple songs. We also talk about practice and the absolute necessity of regular practice to advance with this instrument, and also how to practice most effectively. Lessons are catered to the individual needs and interests of the students, but a solid Classical foundation is a requirement. If the student already has experience playing, we focus on improving and advancing on those existing skills. I
