If purchasing the instrument poses a financial challenge, renting is an alternative option.

Believe it or not, it is possible to self-teach the violin if you have access to the right resources.

Many new violin players are told to strictly follow the rules in order to succeed. While this is true to a certain extent, what if someone is deeply committed to becoming excellent but is constantly held back by a strict teacher? You are the one who can determine how quickly you want to learn, so teaching yourself gives you 100% control over your progress.

Saving Money

Let’s face it, violin lessons can be expensive! Not to mention the impact of the recession, where teachers may charge $50 or more per hour.
