The violin is the most perfect instrument for all thinkable music styles, apart from classical music it has claimed it's place in jazz, pop, rock, country, world music...
Until now there has been no violin method that went beyond classical music.
Creative Violin brings this to a change.
Apart from classical music the student will taste many different styles of music and even learn to improvise, right from the start.
I see that this works very well, even the youngest beginners (6 years old!) learn how to close the book and start playing intuitive, along with the provided studio recorded accompaniments, right from the first lessons.
Creative Violin is a new method which even includes improvisation training right from the start.
What can you expect in this first course?
This course is the follow up on lessons 1 and 2 (basics)
Here we will learn combining quarter notes with eighth notes, ties (playing 2 or more notes on the same bow direction),
3rd finger, improvisation...
Included music in the full course are classical pieces (Bach, Mozart, Dvorak, Bartok...) as well as the jazz/swing (lesson 8), musical, and world music from countries like Ireland and Romania...
All lessons and exercises are accompanied with studio recorded backing tracks, so you'll never have to play alone.
- Anyone who wants to learn to play the violin by a new method, even learning how to improvise.
- Classical students and those who want to be able to play styles like jazz, country and folk too.
- Students that have completed "Creative Violin, The New Violin Method 1: Basics, Lesson 1-2"
Lessons 3, 4 and 5 are the follow up on the basics lessons and lessons 1 and 2, also available here on Udemy.
Here you will start with combining quarter and eighth notes, forming the first rhythmic patterns on the violin.
After that you will learn the ties, playing 2 (or more) notes on one bow direction.
Lesson 4 will be about string changes, this will make it possible to play a wider range.
Also you will discover a new time signature: the 3/4 and play "Amazing Grace".
In lesson 5 we will add the 3rd finger, where we will practice the reading too.
To add the most fun, at the end of all lessons you will improvise with the skills you have accomplished so far.
Play along with me or download the Backing Track (Play-along) to go for it yourself.
All songs and exercises in the course are downloadable, have their own video to study along with, and an accompaniment for you to play with the band, piano, or even orchestra.
Learn combining quarter and eighth notes and start with your first rhythmic patterns.

Yay!! Congrats, this is your first actual song: "Mary Had A Little Lamb"
Let's play it!
We are ready for a nice song, making use of the exercises we did so far.
This is in a different time signature, 3/4.
This means: the quarter note is the "count" and there are 3 of them in a measure.
You will notice that the first measure has only one note, we call that an upbeat. (In the precount it will be on the 3rd).
This is usually "compensated" by taking one count out of the last measure, you can see it contains a half rest, (2 beats).
You could say that the third beat has moved to the beginning of the song, the upbeat.
