Violin seems to be a difficult instrument. It is true that you need some time and effort to get a good smooth bowing and a beautiful sound but it is also important especially for beginners, to enjoy the interaction with the instrument and the music. It is important to enjoy the sound of the violin and exercise to be able to express your feelings in the music freely. When I went to study violin in Europe I also had to go through a phase in which I had to relearn about my technique, so I know very well about the difficulties when mastering the violin as an almost new instrument. I would like to use my experiences to help you find your way with your music and the instrument.
