You can learn how to play the violin fast!

The Learn Violin Fast method books will teach you how.

So, you want to learn how to play the violin? Awesome! But you’ve heard that it’s really hard and takes years of practice just to be able to produce a beautiful sound? That’s not so awesome. Well, the good news is that it’s simply not true. If your goal is to become a virtuoso (achieve a very high level of technical mastery), yes, it will take 10,000 hours of dedicated practice, with the help of a great instructor. But, learning how to play the violin, making beautiful sounds, and most importantly enjoying the process, can be done quickly. You’ll need a decent violin with a good set-up, the Learn Violin Fast method books, and most importantly a positive attitude and a good work ethic. A little practice with lots of frequency will go a long way. How do I know that my method works? I have helped hundreds if not thousands of students, who love playing the violin, enjoy the process of learning new music, and have fun playing by themselves, in small chamber groups, or larger ensembles such as youth and community orchestras.

For the process to make sense, it needs to follow a certain progression. First you must learn some musical concepts and the mechanics of the violin to know how it all works. If this crucial step is skipped, when you move on to more complicated techniques such as shifting and playing with flats and sharps, you’ll simply be overwhelmed, get frustrated, and possibly quit. I’ve seen it time and again, trust me. This knowledge phase is one of the most important pillars of learning how to play the violin well and quickly.

All three Learn Violin Fast books contain numerous explanations, with “this is important” highlights, visual diagrams, and quizzes to test your newly learned knowledge. Pictures of particular steps and techniques visually illustrate how to perform all of the tasks. By understanding how and why to do something, your body, hands, and fingers will more easily be able to execute strange and new motions. In short, here is what you will learn in each of the three books.

  • Book 1 - Basics. You will learn how music and the violin works; how to play simple songs; learn and understand music notation.

  • Book 2 - Right hand. The primary focus of this volume is on how to use the bow to produce beautiful sound, how to manipulate sound to create meaning, as well as how to play with a low second finger.

  • Book 3 - Left hand. You will learn all the left finger placements, shifting, vibrato, chords and more.

Are you ready to learn one of the most popular and beautiful instruments in the world? Then follow me on this journey to learn violin fast!

If you’re someone who writes songs, takes music theory classes, or composes music, you need a music staff notebook for writing down your ideas, sketches, or lessons. However all music writing manuscript notebooks are really hard to use, with no place to write down text or explanations of what you’re writing or learning. Furthermore, once you fill your notebook with musical ideas, sketches and lessons, how are you going to find that particular idea in the future?!

As a musician and a music teacher, I wanted to create a better book for myself and for my students by offering following benefits:

The Creative Music Sketchbook:

  • Has a fill-in-the-blank Table of Contents! Yes, you can write down your project’s name that corresponds to that particular page at the beginning of the book. You no longer have to flip through the entire book to find what you’re looking for. You are creating your own book, with its own unique table of contents.

  • The Staff is perfectly spaced, giving you plenty of room to write down your ideas, but not so small that it’s difficult to use.

  • Each page provides space to write down comments or text ideas, or drawing for your musical sketches

  • Every third page, there is a lined page for longer comments, or notes on whatever came before.

  • There are three sections. The short form musical ideas section is perfect for melodies, ideas, chord progressions and lessons. The long from music ideas section is great for longer musical sketches, or larger ensemble writing such as piano, string quartet, or SATB writing. The third section is 12 full pages of music staves per page, for those longer ideas or larger ensemble writing.

About Sergei

Violinist Sergei Panov wishes to instill a love for music, self-expression, and self-realization in his students. Teaching orchestra in a direct, simple, and goal-oriented way is his mission in life. At the age of 12, after growing up in St. Petersburg, Russia, he emigrated with his family to the United States and settled in New Jersey. With a mother who teaches piano, and a father who builds musical instruments, Sergei naturally gravitated toward music and education. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance at Temple University under the late Helen Kwalwasser’s guidance and served as the concertmaster of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra under the late Joseph Primavera. During his university studies, Sergei realized his true passion was in music education and he has presented on this topic at the New Jersey Music Educators Association Conferences and Rowan University. He serves as the manager of the Central Jersey Region Orchestra and has led the New Jersey All-State Violin Sectionals. As orchestra teacher at John Marshall Elementary School in Edison, he now relishes cultivating a love of music with younger generations.
