Most people think that it has to be a string band instrument as it takes a lot of practice and practice is so much more complex, but there are a lot of great string instruments for beginners, I would really recommend a few of them as they are the easiest to learn once you have the basic skills and can play the basics. I would recommend the clarinet because a lot of students and beginner are intimidated by a lot of the new string instruments and also it is a bit more interesting to learn how it works. If you just want to learn one instrument, and if you have a basic knowledge of the string sound and how it creates the sound, it is not really that hard to learn, so I don’t go into any more detail when it comes to string instruments, but just think that it may help if you have a beginner instrument as there are much more options and you won’t have the same problems. If you can get a beginner viola or viola cello and a beginner viola and a beginner bass, and a beginner flute or flute and a beginner cello, that is great. I would say that the viola can be done in as little as 3 weeks and that is because people are still really intimidated by it, but then again you can do all that with just the viola and the cello and a viola and a cello too or if you have a very good teacher, a competent teacher who really knows what they are doing and how to use these instruments properly so they can learn them more efficiently.
Do you prefer studying violin over violin recital or recital over violin classes?
I really like violin for solo recitals and then if I have to get it in on a recital, well I guess you could say that I like it more than violin, but it depends on the teacher and the situation. I would say that if I have to do it every day, or at least every weekend, then I would say that I would be more into this option of recital and so at the same time like that I can learn it as quickly as possible, which is really important, otherwise you will have to take a full-time violin class or at the very least, if you want to learn a more advanced instrument, a solo, it’s a lot easier to get out your feet and start playing an instrument on your very first day.
How did you get started teaching violin?
I have been teaching a long time and I really liked playing
