Indispensable guide 27 April 2008
By G. Morris - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am attempting to self-teach myself violin. (I am not entirely a newbie -- I play piano and guitar.) This book and a mirror are indispensable for setup (holding the violin, posture, holding the bow, bowing mechanics, etc). Be aware however, that that's what it is. It is not a method book.
