How To Get Started As a Beginner Violinist

Learning the violin for the first time can be very confusing if you don't know where to begin!

We know this, because over the past 10 years or so, ViolinSchool has helped literally thousands of people to begin playing for the very first time. So we're very familiar with the most common questions you'll have when starting to play.

How do you find the right violin? Do you need to read music? What's the quickest way of learning to play your favourite tune?

We thought it was about time to pull together everything we know about helping Beginner violinists to get started for the first time, so we're pleased to introduce:
