Well after being very overwhelmed with suggestions and then speaking with the local music store I chose a more affordable option for right now. It was
less than $100 bucks and it's not that bad. I took it to the music store today and had them check it out. He said for a beginner it's perfect.
I put the strings on and tuned it myself last night. If it wasn't for YouTube I would have been lost! So not like setting up my clarinet. I even found
a tuner app until I get an actual tuner but so far the app works great. I also found a YouTube channel that I really like and the guy has a website
and offers lessons. For $79 a year I get all access to his site and lessons plus one lesson a month via Skype video! It is pretty much what I was
looking for. The local place I found online no longer has violin lessons because they have no teacher now for the violin.
Here is the site. I used his vids last night to set my instrument up.
I'm pretty excited and I named my violin Elizabeth. I name all my instruments and cars lol. It's some weird habit you could say.
As for my dog, Rosco, well he is not fond of the violin either! He growls at the clarinet and did the same to the violin. Oh well can't have everyone
in the house enjoy it. Lol maybe in time?
Here is what I got.
Thanks to those who gave suggestions in my other thread. ThinkingCap I have some of the ones you suggested saved in my Amazon wish list. I figured if
it didn't work out I'd rather be out $75 than $300, plus convincing my husband to let me buy one was easier at this price lol. I also wouldn't mind a
used one that just needs some tlc. The clarinet I played all through school wasn't one of the best brands but I played it well and I was still first
chair. I had a professional Buffet but my teacher was really weird about me using it. He literally drooled over that thing. Lol
My son likes it too lol he carried it off this morning and was asking for more in sign. I taught him some basic sign so when he wants something now he
does the sign for more lol. So I think he likes it!
