It was pretty good
These lessons had a lot of extra information that I didn’t really want to hear but other than that it was pretty good.
Just what I needed
Finally learned how to hold my bow! No matter where I looked I couldn’t find anyone that holds the bow the way he explains it. I somehow also learned how to use my shoulder rest. Exactly what I wanted. I felt myself improve instantly, and I remember the techniques every time I practice.
I loved it! I feel like I got a great start to learning violin. Great step by step instructions. I really like the left hand finger shots. More of those would be even better!
