Welcome Violin Friends to All About Violin!



Here at All About Violin.com we try to explore music education, and the importance of music in the growing mind of a child. Music in general help develop the growing child's brain on both sides at once. For a child to learn how to play the violin takes a lot of committment from child, parent and teacher.

All About Violin is devoted to those that play the violin, those that love the violin and everything in between. Within this site you will find articles written by fellow violin players to help motivate, or solve problems. Feel free to add your own insight or experiences.

Coming soon, I will be adding a new service to this site. I have come to the conclusion that I must be very proficient coming up with good fingerings. I have had lots of professionals (my stand partners) tell me that my fingerings saved them in difficult passages. I have helped many of my students that would bring me pieces from orchestra class where they had been given a fingering that they couldn't play (from the professional coaches that come in the help out). But I would figure out a new fingering for them where they could play through the difficult spot. I have not figured out yet exactly how I offer this service but with all the feedback I get on how good my fingerings are I figured I should be able to help more than just the local people around me. I will keep all of you updated.
