An easy and fun way for kids ages 6 and up to learn how to play violin! Research has proven that children who play an instrument do better in school, make friends more easily, are more creative, learn self-discipline and gain self-confidence. In My Violin, an animated character named Val the Violin leads kids through lessons by Sabina Skalar.
My Violin covers the basics, such as tuning your violin and playing notes, and moves on to reading music, playing songs, and much more. An animated fingerboard shows you where to put your fingers as the live recorded audio plays. Our revolutionary Finger Tracker listens to your playing and shows you whether your fingers are on the right spot. With MIDI tracks, the speed of the music can be adjusted so you can learn at your own pace. Special features such as an automatic tuner, metronome, and digital recorder are all included.
