A pedagogically unsound product for beginners

By Michael Hopkins

from Burlington, VT

Comments about Warner Bros Ultimate Beginner Series Violin (DVD):

Warner Bros. has created a DVD that will likely cause major problems for the beginner. The instruction contains NO visual diagnosis advice for the beginning student. Most beginners have difficulty forming the bow hold correctly and holding the instrument correctly. The demonstrations of bow hold and instrument hold are pedagogically suspect. The camera angles do not show the bent thumb of the bow hold. Exercises for forming the correct bow hold, the shape of the left hand, or bringing the instrument into position are ignored. The model does not demonstrate holding the instrument very well. No attention is given to common problems and how to solve them (going from incorrect to correct). Posture is given a brief overview, but when the model describes what to do with the stance, the camera does not show her stance! Beginners should have fine tuners on all strings - why does the model not have an instrument outfitted with fine tuners? Why doesn't she show how to tune with fine tuners? Why doesn't she demonstrate turning the peg with a camera close-up? These are major issues for beginners. The section on the instruments contains poor playing - especially the viola, cello, double bass, tuba and percussion. The theory section is also suspect. They actually state that the viola reads the "viola clef!" The extra lesson on "forming major scales" is demonstrated with a guitar. Why couldn't they spend the money to do the lesson with a violinist? I think it is unethical for a company with so many financial resources like Warner Bros. to release such a pedagogically unsound product on the market. I hope that in the future, they consult with experts when developing these types of products. This DVD is all style, no substance.
