Hi, I'm looking for lesson book recommendations for people picking up violin as a second (or third) instrument meaning something that focuses on the violin specifically and less on things like general music theory as I've had plenty of that in high school and college. My situation is that I've been a concert and jazz trombonist for many years and also play guitar and piano, but I've never touched a violin. So is there anything you guys or girls can think of that would suit my needs? Thanks for your suggestions
Hello, dear violinists! I would like to share my experience with you. One day I accidentally stumbled on very interesting musician's website. The author is Alexander Shonert. There, in section "Learn to play the violin", I've found out, that he has developed a technique, called "The Shonert Technique". Usually musicians follow some musical schools and copy their techniques. But Alexander developed his own method based on the traditional violin school. The specification of this method is learning how to fill and manage your body, especially how to manage your mind. I was also interested by the fact, that lessons can take place not only personally, but also on the Internet, in Skype. I've decided to try and signed up for a lesson. The result was simply amazing! After just couple of lessons my level went up very much! And most importantly, I really enjoyed the lesson process. In general, I recommend! Try it! http://shonertacademy.com/violin-lessons-in-person-and-online/
