Recommendations for great teachers for online violin lessons?

Edited: November 9, 2020, 6:01 AM · Hello everyone!

I am a complete beginner and my country is currently in quarantine so I cannot get any lessons.Does anyone have any recommendations on teachers or website for high quality face to face violin lessons?

Do you have a violin already (and is it reasonably in tune?) In any case, feel free to send me an email through my website (www.scottslapin.com, it's at the bottom of the page) and we can talk further!

I would like to recommend Julia Termeer. She's my teacher and the source of motivation for a few years now :)

She teaches through "Julia's Violin Academy" and YouTube channel. Private one-on-one lessons are also available.

You can find more information here:

and right now there is an online violin camp:

I hope this info will help you :)

His being able to walk around me to see what I was doing and being able to manipulate my bow arm or left hand were both really helpful to me in the first couple of months. Now that my technique is in better shape, Skype lessons have not been too frustrating for my teacher, but he occasionally mentions that he wishes he could observe in person. As an absolute beginner, you may develop habits that will benefit from in-person correction down the road.
