Who is this Lesson For?

This lesson is for the violinist who is comfortable in first and third position and is up for the challenge of higher position work (fifth and sixth). This arrangement also contains some passages with fast shifting, varying dynamics and bow strokes, and fast string crossings. 

This lesson isn’t suited for complete beginners. Beginner-focused lessons will be coming soon though, so make sure you’re signed up for Taylor’s email list for updates as to when that becomes available!
