I've been playing the violin for a couple years now, but I see that I still have a LONG way to go. :)  250 is a LOT of lessons...I don't know where to start.  Is there any recommended order or some sort of lesson schedule?  Thanks again Beth for this WONDERFULL program...
P.S. You sound SO beautiful on the violin :-)

Hi Joanna,

Welcome, Joanna!  Since you're not a beginner it doesn't make sense to start with the beginning sequence.  However, even if it's a review for you, I recommend watching the following videos in the numbered sequence: #25, #29, #33, #59-61. Then take a look at the following groups of videos on "Maintaining a Straight Bow", "Finger Motion", "Left Hand Squeezing", "String Crossings", "Elements of Tone Production", and the "Scale Studies".  You can easily find these videos by searching the tag words column on the Library page.

The videos I've listed seem to pertain universally to the concerns of all learning violinists. For now, I would advise you to concentrate on form and technique for a few weeks. Giving those things a little attention will help your playing immensely! Also, I think after you've watched these videos, and have assessed your own playing, you'll have a better idea of where to go next. Keep us updated.
