Overview

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!

This was a Christmas gift for our daughter and when she opened it on Christmas she was unable to play it because the string was broke off the instrument. She was excited to get it but that quickly turned to disappointment when she realized it came to us broken. Then, after we took it to the store we were charged $11 to fix something that arrived to us broken. Not cool...why should the customer be charged for receiving a faulty product? We paid to purchase the violin and fix the violin all before being able to even use it. I think that's horrible customer satisfaction!

Excellent starter violin

By Lauren

from Colorado

Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

I bought this as a total beginner adult with a piano background. Required a little assembly (restring, etc.) but pegs hold tuning nicely and the bow and rosin are good condition. No missing parts, nice carrying case. Overall great value.

Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

Decided to learn the violin after playing the guitar for 10 years. I wanted to learn a unique instrument. I am 25 yrs old and thought learning without professional lessons would be challenging, but with emedia violin it has been far easier than expected. Wish the craftsmanship were a little better, but overall it is a brilliant instrument to learn no matter your age

    Unexpected instrument quality, but useless CD

        Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

        The violin reassembled better than I thought it would. (I had read that the strings were loosened for shipping.) And the quality of bow and materials for its upkeep were better than I expected, for the cost of the starter pack. But, the Lesson CD was completely inoperable. Pleasantly surprising, eMedia, maker of the lesson CD, provided immediate professional support and provided me a link and serial number so I was able to download the lesson pack.

        Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

        I haven't found anything good about this violin. Guess you get what you pay for. When it arrived it was all to pieces which I can understand that. But when you try to tune it, the tuning pegs will not even hold it in tune. They unwind.

                Comments about Emedia My Violin Starter Pack:

                At first it was hard to keep in tune, but we happened to have some peg holder used for the purpose of keeping the pegs from slipping from another stringed instrument. This is available anywhere that sells violins. I feel this a great value for a person who just wants to learn to play the violin for personal use. I bought it for my daughter who has some musical experience with other instruments and she is doing very well at teaching herself. It was perfect for what we wanted - a chance to learn the violin without investing a fortune. If we decide to buy a higher quality instrument in the future we can, it served our purpose, but is certainly not an instrument for someone who is serious about concert playing.
