Violin

Creator: Anne Rice | 1999-09-07

The demonic ghost of a Russian aristocrat uses his magic violin to enchant the exquisite Triana and transport her to a terrifying realm where they join a battle of wills, in an evocative tale of seduction. Reprint.

    0 5/5 Suzanne Langlois "JOBeth" (Georgia) - See all my reviews, September 18, 2006

    Well thought out series.

    "For a real violin study, go with Suzuki." While that might work for a child that is ages 3-4 in a one-on-one or small group setting (which is what the Suzuki Method was intended for), it does not work well in large group learning situation for kids who are twice that age, beginning instruments in fourth and fifth grade. And to be honest, almost everything in the Suzuki method *IS* an arrangement of an original work (like the Bach Bouree from the cello suites set for violin), chosen because even in their simplified form they help teach the fundamental concepts.This is my third year using EE2000 in my school program. I usually have between 30-40 students at each grade level in the orchestra. The books and their accompanying CD/DVD work really well and are of the appropriate complexity for the students ages nine through eleven. As a private instructor myself, I recommend to all my students to seek outside instruction, but EE2000 provides a good balance of technical... 5/5 Gene Wie (Irvine, CA USA) - See all my reviews, September 27, 2007

This review is from: ADM® 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Violin with Starter Kits, Popular Colored Violin for Beginners, New Players and Students, Varnish Finish Colorful Violin-Black It looks beautiful and arrived with no scratches on it. However the sound post fell during shipping (It is a small wooden cylinder inside the chamber) and its kind of difficult to tune (may be because I am a beginner). I m still giving it 5 stars because of its quality and good violins don't have the sound post glued and it is expected to fall during shipping.Have fun learning. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 2, 2014

    0 5/5 Nick Razo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ADM® 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Violin with Starter Kits, Popular Colored Violin for Beginners, New Players and Students, Varnish Finish Colorful Violin-Black I've recently been wanting to learn how to play the violin but was overwhelmed by all the different brands and such. I chose this one because the reviews on it were very good and the price couldn't be beat. When I first opened it everything was nice and layed out. I would recommend buying new strings to replace the factory set just because factory strings tend to not be very good quality. After replacing the strings I started to tune it, which is when I did notice the pegs began to slip. I looked online for a solution and since I didn't have any peg compound, I took a bar of soap and rubbed a small layer of it on each peg. It also helps if you push the peg in while it's being tuned. If you can I would also recommend another rosin aswell because it will make a difference. The violin itself is beautiful and seems to be well crafted. I for one am very satisfied :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 20, 2015

    Incredibly thorough and helpful...

    0 5/5 forster - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Violin For Dummies, 2nd Edition (Kindle Edition) I bought this because my boyfriend made me the gift of a violin for Christmas. My main instrument is the piano so I had no idea what I was doing with such a beautiful instrument. This book is a great starting point for musician as well as those who have never touched an instrument. You can skip parts if you are experienced enough to know them already, and everything is explained thoroughly, almost too thoroughly. I bought the Kindle edition so the videos are not readily available but from the text I can see that even the smallest technique is not only explained step by step, but is accompanied by a picture and a video. I advise anyone starting any instrument to keep a determined attitude and keep practicing, because it will not sound pretty at first. I look forward to continuing my violin education with this book. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 11, 2013

    Much better than I expected

    I wrote this review for the person who knows nothing about violins at all:This violin is of much higher quality than I ever imagined. It is not, of course, even a good violin by professional standards, but it is a very solid beginner's instrument. I bought it for myself, though I am not a violinist, but I have been playing guitar, bass, and keys for more than six years, and I have played violins before. My ex-girlfriend lent me her first violin when we were dating, and it was really, really horrible. This one is pretty close to her current violin, which was a pretty decent student model. I did a lot of research before buying this one, and I'm really glad I did. It is rated highly by violin teachers and other violinists, but very lowly by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I have read that a lot of violins under $100 don't even have a sound post, which is a crucial part of the violin and absolutely cannot be discarded. You're almost better off with a... 5/5 Zachary Buser - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Review done by a music teacher

    This violin--to be honest is very cheap. Not just in cost but in quality.BUT overall, not too horrible. Especially if you don't have an option on renting one, or if you don't mind buying one to have.It isn't perfect, but there are some decent qualities about it. I'm very persnickety about instruments, my woodwind instruments cost well into and beyond thousands of dollars range, even my beginning ones.This little guy, for what I want it for--learning the basics (fingering, bowing, proper care) is PERFECT for anyone.Here are my notes about this violin:1. The appearance of the violin is alright. It isn't anything special. In fact, it looks as if paper has been placed over the wood frame, and painted to look like it has groves, or actual wood designs.2. The bow is acceptable, it works well enough for a beginner (young and old). It takes some effort getting the strands to be tight enough. I had to do a lot of pushing in and... 4/5 Carole - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) This violin--to be honest is very cheap.

    Great quality/price ratio!

    0 5/5 Captain Cadabra - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) Great violin? No. As nice as the ones the music stores rent for $25 a month, yes. Comes with tons of accessories that would cost you $30-40.As a violin teacher, I like to have these on hand for cheap entry level instruments, or rent for $10/month. That way a student doesn't have to get into a year contract at a local music store if they aren't sure if they want to stick with it or not.A great way to get started on the violin for VERY little money. After owning this violin for a year or so, the student can decide to invest in a nicer one, and pass this along to a sibling/friend/Craigslist.Only disclaimer is: make sure you have someone who can setup a violin for you (the case with all violins, regardless of quality). They are NOT instruments that can be played right out of the box, and if you have a store do this for you, it's probably a $30-45 fee. Find a violin playing friend that will do it for free for you :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2011
