Ok, so here's the situation... I am totally blind and a violin beginner. I do not have the finances to have private lessons. I cannot read sheetmusic for obvious reasons. I also was never taught braille music. This leaves me learning things by ear. Does anybody know of any places for this type of material??? I know Bill Brown has some stuff, but it's only an intro. I will start with this for now. However, I have no idea where to go afterward for more classical instructions.
Z I would like to find audio versions of Suzuki books, because I keep hearing that they have good musical pieces to learn and start with…
Is this helpful? :-) https://www.violinist.com/blog/laurie/20145/15813/
Thank you both. :) I am going to take a look at the youtube videos right now. :)
The Suzuki violin music is available in itunes. Also the studies by Wohlfhart. I think that in your case you need to focus in soloistic music, that is more easily distinguisable by ear. So after the fourth or fifth book of suzuki, I would jump to Barbara Barber's Solos for Young Violinists. Those are also available in itunes, and there is a lot to chew in them.
Smart idea, Carlos. Irish fiddlers play almost entirely by ear. Maybe find some of those to hang out with. :-)
