Can you teach yourself violin? – Violin Basics Dana Freeman

Yes, I would like to. I’d like to become a professional. How hard is that? I’ve heard people say, “Well, it’s going to be so bad if you start, you’ll be in your bedroom by the time you’re twelve.” But I want to be able to play in the studio. You’d think that you’d get that kind of professional training in the same way that you get a good job.

So you don’t use any specific lessons?

No. All of them are based on studying.

What kind of music do you listen to?

What are you gonna be able to hear me play? I want to hear the things that I can’t understand and do things that I just don’t understand. There’s a lot that I like doing, and sometimes there’s an element in there of doing things that the people at home don’t understand, or things that I don’t understand. But I want to be able to play something that the audience would understand, or maybe that I would make a fool of myself playing.

Did you grow up without family or guidance?

I didn’t go to school. I was just left to my own devices‚Ķ

The family? How?


They did everything: picking me up from school, washing my clothes, doing everything. I was the child of a single mother. It was a strange little world and a weird environment to begin with.

What kind of music does that foster? What makes it interesting to you?

There’s a lot of bands for which I’m listening now that are doing things that I want to learn from. I always had a fascination with bands like Genesis, or the Allman Brothers, or even old-style rock and roll and rhythm and blues. What I see is bands making music that people are able to understand. There’s a lot of bands that I feel like I’ll enjoy listening to, or just a way to learn about music, to explore it, and so on. I’ve started to look at a lot of metal, and I’m listening to bands like Black Sabbath, Metallica‚Ķ

Metal for the people in their seventies and above.

Yeah, yeah, they have a lot of different things going on musically, I’m not looking forward to listening to stuff that I’m really familiar with. I don’t want to do the same thing over and over and over again. I just don’t like it.
