This course proves that small small things can make big difference! Even though I started learning Violin sometime back, this course really helped me to identify what I wasn’t doing right and correct those easily. For the first time (I never had a hope I could), I started using my pinky fingers to play high notes, by continuously practicing the small exercises in this course. This is giving so much relief and motivates to learn more! I would highly recommend this to anyone who has learned Indian Violin before and wants to advance with Maestro, Kumaresh Sir! Thank you!

This course has helped me to fine tune and sharpen my skills with respect to bowing and fingering techniques which has helped me to play the violin more fluently than before. The content of the course is fine tuned specifically for Beginners and the melodies created help to explore the many facets of playing the violin. I find the content very interesting for practice because each exercise is a melody which is simple yet weaved around interesting Swara gucchas and hence makes practice sessions very interesting. Thank you Kumaresh Anna for this wonderful course content.
