Join the Beginner Violin PreTwinkle Open Strings class. The classes in this study should take you at least three months at your own speed to complete. Take it slowly and enjoy the process. Don’t become overwhelmed and if you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to email me directly. Members of the membership site are welcome to email me and have direct guidance and counsel throughout your studies. By the end of the three months you will be well on your way to playing violin. Be sure to maintain your membership to move onto the next level of Master Classes at the ‘grandfathered’ price. If you leave the membership you will have to register at whatever the current price is at the time.
Please ….please….please Don’t skip these skills. They are the foundation to playing all the songs. You need to know how to stand to play the violin so you can get the best sound of the instrument. Know Your Violin Strings and play-along challenges are great for learning to use the bow and develop a full tone. You don’t need to use your fingers for these songs. They are all on the open strings.

Using Gum Drop Notes is simple
With a degree in psychology and 30 years as a violin teacher, this incredible method developed to help students, no matter the age or learning difference, in their quest to deeply understand music theory, sight-reading and the actual tones being played.
The Gum Drop Notes color coding does not represent any psychological issue. We aren’t really seeing colors as we play. What is happening is that each note becomes a tone with a unique sound and color of its own. It takes on a characteristic that can be identified.
Keep in mind that the colors of the notes are subliminally teaching complex music theory concepts without a word of lecturing. Stem colors indicate the string the note is to be played on. Sharps and flats are reinforced by a circle of the color the note is moving toward. Card games to go along with the sheet music tunes teach the order and relationship of notes, symbols and rhythms, etc. Play-along movies bring the student up to polished speed and teach the the tune before the student begins to study the music.
It all seems too good to be true, but once you begin to use the Gum Drop Notes sheet music, play along mp4, and card games, you will be amazed at how fast you learn music theory and the music you are studying and memorizing.
