  • November 27, 2008 how I felt about this DVD

    Once you know how to read violin music this DVD is good. I like the songs in the book. I managed to play some of the songs. i was trying to copy Craig's style of playing. What we need to remember is that the tones are electronically enhanced we...

    may not get the same quality / briliance on our violin. This is one of the differance you will experience, when you learn from a human teacher compairing to a DVD. You will always try to keep-up with quality of tones. With the human teacher, the tones can be boaring.
