OVERVIEW

Everything you need to play violin, including the teacher.

Introducing the all-in-one eMedia My Violin Starter Pack. This Pack is perfect for beginners with everything you need to play the violin: a quality violin with bow and carrying case, plus rosin and cloth. What's more, it includes a great teacher - the new award-winning eMedia My Violin CD-ROM (for Windows & Mac computers).

The eMedia My Violin interactive educational software is what sets this violin Pack apart from all the others. An animated character named Val the Violin guides students through over 160 lessons, teaching them the core elements of violin playing. Authored and demonstrated by professional violinist Sabina Skalar, M.M., the method is great for beginners of any age.

eMedia My Violin teaches with the help of videos and live recordings of songs. An animated fingerboard shows correct placement for fingers as the music plays, and MIDI tracks let you adjust the speed. My Violins revolutionary new Finger Tracker actually listens to your violin playing and shows whether your fingers are placed correctly, and how to adjust them. Colorful MIDI accompaniments make practicing fun. Additional valuable software tools such as an automatic tuner, metronome and digital recorder are also included.

eMedia My Violin first covers such basics as proper violin, hand and finger position, the elements of correct bowing technique, how to tune the instrument, and play rhythmic tunes. It continues on with popular songs and an introduction to reading music notation. All throughout, it is interspersed with interactive games that make learning fun and easy.

The instrument itself has a spruce top with maple back and sides. Other parts are of dyed hardwood with a metal alloy, four tuner tailpiece. The violin has been meticulously set-up and packed in a protective cloth. The bridge is in place, the strings are loosened for shipping. The bow is made of wood, and rosin for the bow is included. The sturdy carrying case has light foam padding as well as a handle and shoulder strap.

The violin comes in 3 different sizes to accommodate various ages: 1/8 size (usually for ages 5-6), 1/4 size (usually for ages 7-8) and 4/4 full size (usually for ages 12 & up through adult).

The eMedia My Violin Pack is the perfect way to introduce children or anyone young at heart to playing violin!

Decent Start

Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

This is a good outfit for someone that isn't sure that they want to play the violin. It is inexpensive, however it shows in the instrument it self. When I got mine the varnish on the back was already chipped, the strings it comes with are very cheap and broke after about a week, I had to buy a bottle of peg drops because I couldn't even get all four strings in tune at the same time before they were out of tune again.

Bottom line is this is a great product to start out with, but you will quickly want to upgrade after you find that you enjoy playing violin.
This pack comes with everything you need to start learning the violin. However, the price

      same as brand new for 80% off the regular price! Very honest advertised description. If this were other retailers they would had repackage it as "brandnew" violin. Thank you Musiciansfriend! I've found my new GuitarCenter :)

              It was broken /cracked at the sound box opening. I had to return it. the shipping box undamaged, but appeared to be too large and was not packaged very well. The cloth case was also torn.

              Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

              I bought this for my daughter who is just beginning lessons. Her teacher said that the violin plays well and is just right for a beginner. We were renting a used violin for a monthly fee. I worried about something happening to it and costing us more. Now she has her own violin so it will save us money in the long run, and I don't have to worry about it as much anymore.
