A teacher is the best thing for a beginner with a violin, I think.

I wanted a teacher, but there are none available in my area that I can find.
so solo is the way to go for now.

Pagannini eh Potat?

OH yeah, it DOES sound impressive..!

It doesn't sound that complicated though... it's just so damn fast!

It'd rock if you ever got the skills to play like that, although I think you won't ever be able to do it unless you do nothing else than practicing to play the violin for like two years or something...

Do they play different from the way we do here?
(Cause I don't think that the girl in the video played different but it's only one girl, maybe you know something I don't about that topic?)

"Learning" instead of "playing" would have been better.
Didn't hear of the "Suzuki Method" ? :)
You start playing an instrument at 3 in the aim to get a better sensibility in music, etc.
A good way to make elite musicians. :p

Sirix > in the end, those children are monstruous musical machines (I consider a lot of them like that).
Not realy a disadvantage. Depends on the point of view. :p

[Edit]
And it depends on your instrument. Guitar is easier to violin for example, which expects extrem rigour from the musician. But in the end, with good bases, you can make what you want easily and with more pleasure than if you would try to descript it with a beginner's level.
