monkee Adkins: Hey I've been studying the violin for years and I've loved classical music and strings for as long as I can remember. I play many instruments but never the violin until today! My wife bought me an Oldenburg 4/4 for xmas and I just NOW OPENED IT! I'm so excited to embark on my journey to become a violinist. Your videos are helping me in every way possible. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and skill
Sherylin Matthew: Once again I just wanted to say thanks for the videos you make and the effort you put in to making these for us :) Sadly some seek to undermine your efforts with attacks against your fan club.
Keep up the good work. Know that it is appreciated :)
the Doctor: it changes because over time the Wood becomes more supple and it allows for the instrument to resonate better
Kenneth Nielsen: Very good, covering all the main points. Appreciate your help with this. I also would recommend that cheap violins may have pegs that stick or cannot be tuned easily... to take them out and scrub the contact surface with regular blackboard chalk... this will make them turn and adjust properly and hold tune also.
Matthew Walz: I'm in 7th grade and trying to learn violin,can you name some beginner level songs?
Jenna McGee: my violin was $44 that includes the violin, bow, case and rosin
Trinitro phenylnitramine: Before learning the violin, I played the guitar and the strings and the type of wood and craftsmanship are the main things that affect the sound quality. Is it the same for violin?
Trinitro phenylnitramine: The violin I just bought has a very scratchy A string. Thought it was the way I used the bow at first but the other strings were quite good, so it must be the string. I will buy a new set of strings and see if it helps.
Gorby459: Thank you,
Gorby459: Hi I recently bought a second hand Stentor violin for my son and being a Mandola player I know very little about violins. I did however notice when I brought the violin home the G string was a light gauge similar to the E string. Is this normal?
Lou M LL: I am 57, am I too old to learn?
Jacqueline Jordan: OMG I will admit an upgrade on strings make such a difference! I bought a Mendini MV300 . Not bad for a beginner violin however I just put on a set of Dominant strings and it sounds so much better. I do have one question, at what point does one start to upgrade. I personally wouldnt upgrade because I am very new at playing but I know that someday I will want to upgrade.
Evon Ison: Aim a 7 grade vilonist
ローラン生徒エル: I cant find the anser enywere, about how tight the violin strings should be. Do they have to be a bit loose, so they come down or bouns? Or should they be very tight so they cant go way down?
crystal kirlia: I'm a grade 5 violinist in high school and my friend asked me to teach her. I agreed. I need tips for teaching her. she never played before so I'm painting on a blank canvas. tips pls!
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
