Basic Technique


Before anyone decides to become involved in the violin, they should know the circumstances. Learning the violin is not easy—it is not easy as a beginner, and it is never easy to pick up new techniques as a talented player. New violinists spend time learning the basics of posture, finger positioning, and bow handling. To become an accomplished player, time needs to be given to practicing and taking lessons. Although it is nearly impossible to summarize the process of learning the violin, the violin structure and the basics of the violin are two concepts that can be learned relatively quickly.
