I am a violinist of over a year and have finally started playing concerts with the church band. Since I started I have dreamed of some day becoming a well known violinist and now of even becoming a classical composer. I started playing the violin with a cheap violin ($100) and immediately liked it. After 10 months my teacher said I was his hardest working and most talented student and that I was progressing very fast. With those words in mind my parents and I started searching for a better violin. after about a month we found a violin worth trying. We brought it home. I tried it for a week. It needed new strings and a lot of love but it sounded beautiful. When the week was up we purchased it, case, and 1 bow for $600. I have used it ever since. Now that I am playing concerts I need a good pick up. I have been told that LR Brags are really good but I would like to know what you all think. PLEASE REPLY.
I have been playing violin for over a year now and in the beginning I didn't want anything to do with classical music. Now a year and after thinking about college I have decided I would like to learn it. the problem is I don't know where to start. I realy like my teacher and don't want a knew one. So I want to know if I can learn it my self. And if so how. I would also like to know if learning it now would help me get in a college orchestra.
I recently bought a stainer violin. I would like to if this $6oo.oo violin will last through college and if so will it be a good orchestra violin.
I'm a beginner violinist and study western fiddle tunes.
I would like to know the best way to start classical music without changing teachers. please respond
