I have a violin at home and I would really like to learn. The only problem is, I cannot find a teacher in my area (India) and so I thought I could, maybe, learn just the basics online.
I completely understand the need for a teacher when it comes to subtle points and technique (developing a real feel for the instrument), but perhaps I could start off by myself. I taught myself to play the harmonium by ear.
Is learning online going to benefit/harm me in any way? Can I get past the novice stage by learning online?
