I am 13 years old and a self-taught player for 6 months now. In the beginning I was watching the 1-30 violin course of The Online Piano and Violin Tutor (I watched episodes 20-30 as a reference guide and searched for resources on the Internet related to the topic in the episodes, such as scales and daily routines, this due to the fact that episodes 20-30 needs books that need to be bought). I know have learned several pieces from Suzuki 2 & 3 and will be moving on to some pieces in Suzuki 4, and am doing the 60 Wohlfahrt Etudes. I know the basic bowing techniques and some other ones, such as
spiccato, double stops, and chords. I know have a daily routine, such as bowing exercises that also serve as warm-ups, scales (normal scales and chromatic scales), and arpeggios. I also have good grip on music theory, about the violin and violin playing, and the things that I need to learn next.
To successfully achieve what I need to learn next, what are some good violin books or violin schools of learning do I need to develop/achieve certain aspects of playing, such as better bowing, tone, and intonation as a self-taught player that can be done without a teacher?
