My Violin Tutor Pro Series 1 DVD is the perfect set of lessons to teach you everything you need to know about playing violin at the beginner level. The DVD contains 10 of my in-depth lessons in a progressive format starting with the basics, and moving into more difficult concepts. These lessons are exactly what I would be teaching a pure beginner if they came to me for private lessons, or someone that is interested in a refresher course on how to play properly.

What is the quality of these lessons?
These lessons are very professional and are in full high definition. The content is interactive, easy to understand and contains many closeups that make learning easy.
How many songs will I learn?
Violin Tutor Pro Series 1 comes with a lesson book that is shipped to you with the DVD. It contains over 30 songs that are taught to you through the DVD lessons. You don't have to know how to read music through this series, as I also include notation of each note and rhythm through a music key. This key will include what finger to put down on the fingerboard, what string to play and how long to hold each note. I also teach you how to read music, so you can choose which method works best for you!Take a look at a downloadable version of the book that you can start working on before the DVD comes!
What will I accomplish?
The biggest problem I see with students that are interested in playing violin is the inaccuracy of the approach they take. This DVD series will take away any doubt about what you should be practicing, and move in a progressive format so you can learn at your own pace. Because of this organized approach, you'll accomplish a great tone on the violin much quicker than if you were just watching random videos. Many times, students don't even get to the point of creating a good sound because they learn so many bad habits that restrict them. This DVD will help you avoid all the mistakes, and take your playing to the next level.
