For the New Year I would like to start learning the Violin, but I am not sure where to start.
I live in NY, and I work 5 days a week, with Saturday and Sunday off.
I have been looking for weekend classes only to start learning the Violin, but it seems too rare.
I did come across the Manhattan School of Music that has Sunday classes using Google, but it keeps taking me to a form to fill out for 2014-2015 session...so I am not sure if Sunday classes is a thing anymore at the school, I will research later.
Throughout this year, I can attend Saturday and/or Sunday classes for Violin if I can find a good one to attend somewhere in NY. My Saturdays will be occupied with other Community College classes Saturday morning from February to May, and most of Saturday from September to December...so I will still have some portion of my Saturdays open for Violin classes, and still have my Sundays open for Sunday classes.
Is it really this rare to find weekend classes to learn Violin or any instrument? I would figure there is somebody out there taking advantage of teaching weekend classes.
My other question is, how useful is attending a 30-60 minute once a week Violin class? Is it adequate enough? Or is learning Violin something where I should be attending a class every day of the week? I know there is also practice at home, but I do not want to develop bad habits by being forced to learn by myself at home instead of learning from a professional.
I am really eager to start learning, but I just need guidance or tips on how to find a good continuous way of learning that doesn't involve only self-learning...in NY...lol...
