Learning online is very useful for violinists of all levels, for example when you:
* Are looking for instruction on a specific topic, tune or piece
* Are self learning, because you don’t have access to a local teacher
* Have a private teacher, but want a different view on a certain technique or piece
Sometimes when you see something explained by someone else in a slightly different manner, it can suddenly click.
When you go all ‘peeps have learned the violin for centuries without YouTube’…
Yup, that’s true, but in those days learning the violin was only available for the happy few. Why use your private teacher as your online source of information? I (as private violin teacher) love it when students spend the time and effort to find information outside the lesson. In half an hour or an hour a week you simply can’t cover everything.
In the old times students would refer to books, masterclasses and concerts. Now we have YouTube under our finger tips as an amazing extra resource.
