Thread Name: Help - violin or fiddle?
Subject: RE: Help - violin or fiddle?
So far everyone has overlooked a very important consideration for you as a parent. You are your child's chief protector, and you mustn't risk turning him over to a self-taught, well-meaning person who teaches him bad habits that could cause problems for hia small body.

Make sure that your child's teacher has taken courses in how to teach children safely and pleasurably.

Some doctor I once read about in Smithsonian Magazine remarked that the violin is an instrument designed for destroying the human right arm.
