Almost Useless
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The only thing a beginner can learn from this VCD is how to hold a violin since a video is better than a book. This VCD doesn't teach how to hold bow. This VCD talks about how to choose a case, history of violin, how to care the violin, etc. One can learn much more from a book than from this VCD. Given its content, it's worth..."
Is there something better?

"I'm just taking up the violin after playing clarinet for 8 years. I have a book and got this DVD so I could SEE how to do things. My violin sounds nothing like Dana Freeman's (person on the DVD). I still am having a lot of trouble bowing because you can't see how she holds the bow. She only tells you the high points, when I put my fingers on the strings, nothing came out. She also did "finger-wiggling" techniques that she didn't even explain. I was more confused and frustrated after watching this DVD. If you've already got it, watch it over and over and over until it's as clear as glass. Otherwise, save your money and get a beginning level method book."
