I am a beginner violinist/fiddler and I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this site back in January 2012. It is the single best resource I have ever seen to help beginner/intermediate/and advanced players all over the world. Pierre (aka Fiddlerman) has devote himself to cramming this site with incredible resources, from hundreds of video tutorials, sheet music, audio tools, etc.. And in addition to all of these aides, Pierre is dedicated to helping players improve their skills and knowledge by watching and critiquing member videos and and answering hundreds of member questions.
And the members on this site are incredible! There are a lot of beginners, intermediates, and pros who all share their insight and help. There are more spectacular people on this site than I've found anywhere on the web. And we all have fun and share our passion for the violin/fiddle/viola. Members participate in the site at whatever their comfort level; everyone is respectful and caring of the other members; it's a VERY unique experience!
