Hi, the piano accompaniment in this DVD package is MIDI? or they have been recorded with the real piano with pianist?
Thank you,
Ehsan From Rome

Hi Ehsan, and thank you for your question.

Yes, the Mp3 audio accompaniments are high quality, computer generated. Not real recordings. They have been conceived for practice purposes, and with the fact their tempo is "perfect", it is an excellent tool for practicing music. Please, let me know if you have any further questions.
Chris * VSM MEMBER * on September 30, 2013 @8:20 pm PST
I ordered the Violin Package on Sept 13, and I am eager to get started, but... It is now Sept 30 and I have not yet received it (I live in Canada). I am starting to worry about it taking so long... Is there any way to track the delivery?

Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on October 1, 2013 @9:32 am PST

I am gonna check personally with our fulfillment company and let you know as soon as possible. If you need to contact us in a more "personal" way, please get in touch with us at:

what is the benefit for a beginner as opposed to just getting music from the site, I am a member
reply
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on September 18, 2013 @5:05 pm PST
Hello and thank you for your question.

Well, as a Member you can download from our website all the contents included on the DVDs inside the package. The additional benefits of the violin package is that you have everything on 4 DVDs for off-line enjoyment (so, even without Internet Connection, you have all your archives on DVD) and may also be a strong "back-up" copy of everything you may download from our website. Besides that, you also find 4 printed sheet music books of our most famous violin pieces, as well as a printed copy of my violin book "Basics of Violin Playing".

Please, let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you again for your interest and music passion!
zaeda * VSM MEMBER * on July 24, 2013 @12:39 am PST
Hi there,
I was wondering if it's possible to buy the DVDs separately (that is, all of them but in separate shippings) since otherwise I'd have to pay customs in Europe (which involves a lot of hassle driving to the customs office rather far away, queuing, and paying about 25% of the package value...). Or does it ship as books? Because then it'd be customs free up to about 100 Euros or so. Thanks
reply
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on July 24, 2013 @10:05 am PST
Hi! I am very sorry, but at the moment what you are suggesting is not possible. The package ships inside a single box. Anyway, are you sure you have to pay customs for this kind of merchandise? We had many customers in Europe and they had to pay nothing.
Lillian on June 17, 2013 @6:59 am PST
i would like you to show me how to teach preschoolers how to play the violin.
reply
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on June 17, 2013 @10:49 am PST
Hi Lillian and thank you for your question.

In my book "Basics of Violin Playing" which is included in the package and can be purchased separately as an e-book at the link below:

http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/score/ViolinBasics.html

I explain what is the best approach for little children to play the violin, and it can be summarized in this way:

1. Keeping the violin in a correct position is a challenge for little children, so more frequent rests are needed (every 5-10 minutes?).

2. The overall study/lesson session shouldn't be longer than 30 minutes, best time is probably around 15-20 minutes.

3. The bow should be approached and handled in a different way than adults (see my book on page 12) to ease grip and handling.

4. Repertoire must be completely different to favorite ease and fun and foster overall interest in violin playing from the beginning.

I wish I could make a video on this... maybe Lora Staples could tackle this issue in one of her upcoming videos. I suggest you to post your question to her on her dedicated page below:

http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/experts/lora/

Thank you again and good luck with your teaching!

Sincerely,
Fabrizio

I ordered the violin package and one of the disks won't copy. I guess if I want it replaced I have to buy the package again? That sucks! Support told me to down load the file. They don't understand I have a disk that won't read to my computer.
reply
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on June 14, 2013 @9:35 am PST
Dear Terrence, I am so sorry about that. Our customer support manager contacted me yesterday about this issue and we have arranged a new complete package to be sent to you, so you should receive a replacement soon. Please, let me know if you need any further help. I am sorry again for this issue.
reply
Terrence Heary * VSM MEMBER * on June 19, 2013 @8:49 pm PST
Thank you Fabrizio, I received the replacement and now have all the music in my computer. It is a wonderful package and I highly recommend it for any violinist.

Your customer service is outstanding!

thank you

Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on April 29, 2013 @4:00 pm PST
Hi Siavash! You can purchase the violin package from your country, that's not a problem! You can pay for it via credit card or PayPal (not sure if PayPal is available in your country though). Just click the "Buy it now!" button you find at the top-right of this page.

Please, let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for your interest!
JM on February 26, 2013 @8:45 am PST
I noticed that you offer several printed versions of specific titles with this package. Why did you offer these particular solos in hard copy? Can the user print any other title from the dvd, either accomp. or solo? Can I also download the files to any platform, Mac Pc, or Android? Thank you
reply
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on February 26, 2013 @10:30 am PST
Hi JM and thank you for your questions.

We decided to offer those title in hard copy because they have been our violin top sellers for the past 10 years and because we thought we could target beginners, intermediate and advanced violinists in a balanced way.

As for the contents on the DVDs, you can of course print out any of the included titles in high quality PDF file format. Titles that include instrument solo with accompaniment, includes separate parts for both the accompaniment part (typically the piano) and the solo instrument. Music for ensembles include both full score and single parts.

And yes, with the fact all files are in standard PDF file format, you can open PDF on any platform (PC, Mac, mobile devices, etc.).

Please, let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you again.

what is midi? what is mp3?
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on August 2, 2012 @4:49 pm PST
You are very welcome! That's a great idea we will work on. Thank you again.
Joel Popkin on August 2, 2012 @12:58 pm PST
Hi Fabrizio,
Thanks for your offer to think about this. I am wondering if another possibility would be simply during the recording putting the soloist on one track and the accompanist on the other. That way either player can choose whichever track they would like to use, and it would be in the more "musical format" of an MP3 rather than MIDI. Thanks once again for your help. Joel
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on July 27, 2012 @8:11 am PST
I understand your concern. We will think about a solution for that. Thank you again!
Joel Pokin on July 25, 2012 @11:36 pm PST
Hi Fabrizio,
Thanks for your response. Extracting from a MIDI file works, but we're stuck with the machine-like music. An MP3 with specific instruments would be great if the dynamics and timing were more natural sounding than MIDI. Having a choice of which instrument to work with is exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks again. Joel
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on July 24, 2012 @11:22 pm PST
Hi Joel. I am not aware of such a resource on the web or of any recordings created with that purpose. With our material the easiest way is currently extracting the soloist part from the MIDI file, but we plan to create a tool to extract specific instruments from a MIDI file and create an Mp3 file as output. Would such a tool help for your purpose?
Joel Popkin on July 24, 2012 @8:14 pm PST
Hi,
I'm on the other side of this, so to speak. I would like to practice the piano with a violin solo minus the piano, rather than the usual setup such as Music Minus One, which is invariably minus the solo instrument. Are there recordings of the soloist that an accompanist can practice with, or an MP3 with each instrument on a separate channel? (MIDI will work in that regard, but it's painful.) I'm particularly interested in the Kreutzer sonata, but anything by Debussy would also be great. Thanks for your help.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on July 8, 2012 @1:19 pm PST
Hi Jon. We don't offer a bundle for intermediate players only, but the Violin Package includes music for any skill level: from beginners, to intermediate as well as advanced players. Any level is covered.
Jon * VSM MEMBER * on July 8, 2012 @6:24 am PST
Hi, This seems to be a perfect bundle but I was wondering if you will or are offering a bundle exclusively for intermediate players.

Thanks!
David Teague * VSM MEMBER * on March 12, 2012 @9:04 am PST
I'm not a violinist. That keeps this from being the ENORMOUS value for me that is should be to any violinist. I do transcribe your violin materials to the bass, but that is limited by my skill level (I'm an ardent and fairly good bassist: I play at the level of Meditation from Thais, the cello version of Gabriel Fauré's Sicilienne.) You have really great stuff. I wish I could use more of what's on the DVDs. That alone makes what you offer worth the price.

To Graeme: I am very sorry about that, I sent personally notification 3 times about the package launch in the past week to all of our registrants. Unfortunately the offer is over. My only advice is to buy a Membership to have it half price by paying a total of $136.75. Otherwise, wait until we may give you a new offer in the next future. I am very sorry again, we have done anything we could to keep you posted with the progress of this product launch.
Graeme on November 22, 2011 @10:32 am PST
As you know, I requested notification of this product when available. I received my notice today. The website say that I am too late. Where I live emails don't always appear in a timely fashion. I am not interested in payiny twice the price plus membership. Please reconsider my status. I would be interested at the proposed price of 99.00 incl. membership. I remain,

To mlpettee: lifetime musical support means that for your entire life you will have the chance to ask me or our team any musical advice and support. I.E.: You are studying the Brahms' Concerto for violin and have a question about fingerings? Just shoot me an email, and I will be glad to answer and give you any studying tips if you like so.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 21, 2011 @8:20 am PST
To Gary: well, 99% of the music for violin solo or violin and piano includes fingerings. Many of the pieces for chamber music though don't. As for the Mp3 accompaniment files, they are available for all the repertoire for violin and piano such as sonatas, concertos, etc. as well as for duets or for two violins and piano. There are also included some Mp3 accompaniment files for chamber music. To have a look at what's available with Mp3 accompaniment files, click the "Mp3 accompaniment files (DVD 2-4)" image on the right of this page. You will have an overview of what's included. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Dear Mr. Ferrari,
First of all, I congratulate you on this immense task that you undertook on behalf of violin lovers and successful completion. Kindly reserve my package. Can't wait to lay my hands on it. I had given up violin studies but you have enkindled the flame once again. I thank you very much. Your first book with step by step lessons has made it easier for me.
Someday I hope you will add to your virtual sheet music the following:
Stanchen Aubade Serenade by Johny Heykens

To Irma toner: well, the package includes our complete Christmas repertoire involving the violin such as versions for violin solo, violin and piano, two violins and piano, string trio, string quartet, etc. But if with "3-4 part" you mean 3 violins and 4 violins, we currently don't have Christmas music for such ensembles of violins only. As a beginner you will EXTREMELY benefit from the package contents. The Mp3 accompaniment files will help your violin learning a lot, and my violin book also will give you good tips (it includes relaxing exercises pre and post study, with detailed pictures and deions), exactly targeted to beginners like yourself or music teachers who want to have a new guide about the basic violin technique to their students (and learn how the Italian violin school works). Please, let me know if you have any more questions. My best wishes for your violin learning!

To Peter: the shipping cost to any non-US destination is of only $14.99 US dollars ($14.93 AU dollars).
Irma toner * VSM MEMBER * on November 18, 2011 @1:03 pm PST
Bonjour!
congratulations on this new offer. I am very interested.
I sent this to my violin teacher and this is "I'm specifically looking for 3 or 4 part violin
Christmas music for next year. There may some pieces that we could learn
in our private violin lessons."
I am a senior person but not senior violinist. I can read music well and am progressing easily in private violin lessons because of the technical aspect of music reading. However, I admit that I need a lot of practice and help where proper position, ability to relax etc is concerned. My goal is not to become a famous player but to get the most possible enjoyment out of it. If only I could produce that beautiful sound that I hear in my head and in my heart...
We have an ensemble and play for the public on occasions such as Christmas, etc.
I also would like to learn about proper care of my instrument.
Maybe you could tell me if this package is destined for a person like me.

What will be the postage cost to Australia?

To Billings Youth Orchestra: I am glad you like the video. The background music is the great Mendelssohn Concerto in E minor, last movement. It is the same concerto included in the package as a printed book.
Billings Youth Orchestra * VSM MEMBER * on November 18, 2011 @8:43 am PST
NIce video! And I love the background music. What is it?
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 18, 2011 @7:43 am PST
To Yvette: yes, we plan to. Thank you for your question.
Yvette McKelvey * VSM MEMBER * on November 18, 2011 @7:09 am PST

To mbviola1: yes, the music included in the package is the exact same music you can find online. The accompaniments are with the piano. The benefits of the package are mostly having everything for the violin organized on four durable DVDs easily accessible at anytime (no Internet connection is needed of course), and you will get a printed copy of my violin book as well as four printed copies of our violin best sellers. As a Member you can enjoy free shipping if you order it within the first 48 hours (this coming Sunday or Monday), but you don't need to be a Member to enjoy the contents on DVD. Of course, as a Member you can keep enjoying our new published content online as well all the other content available for other instruments.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 18, 2011 @5:53 am PST
To Ng HS: of course. Members and non-Members can enjoy the same special price of $99 for the first 48 hours orders. If you order it on Sunday or Monday, you will also get a FREE Membership on Virtual Sheet Music, everything included for $99. What Members get more than that is free shipping (US only).
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 18, 2011 @5:50 am PST
To Paul Janzen: we will think about such a solution, I will keep you posted. Thanks.
Kim Salistean * VSM MEMBER * on November 18, 2011 @4:31 am PST
How can I extend this offer to my students? I believe some might like this as a Christmas gift idea.
mbviola1 * VSM MEMBER * on November 18, 2011 @2:27 am PST
A quick question: It is the same music available online?
The accompaniments are for all of the music online? Is it piano only or orchestra as well?
What would be the benefit of having the package? would I still need a membership?
Best, Michael Bandimere
Ng HS on November 17, 2011 @8:54 pm PST
Hi.I am not a member. If I order on Sunday, I can get the member price at $99? Thanks.
Paul Janzen * VSM MEMBER * on November 17, 2011 @6:18 pm PST
ok. It just would be easier for me to download 2 DVD images (iso) then 528 + 285 titles separately But thanks for your effort, and your personal attention.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 17, 2011 @5:16 pm PST
To Paul Janzen: I understand perfectly, but the music on the package is exactly the same music you can already download from our site. I it just "packaged" on physical supports such as DVDs and printed books. Thank you again for your interest!
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 17, 2011 @5:15 pm PST
To Connie: thank you for you comment! I am glad to know you enjoyed our other publications. Stay tuned because tonight I will send you a new announcement about the official release of this package. Thank you again!
Paul Janzen * VSM MEMBER * on November 17, 2011 @7:45 am PST
Well, I live deep in Paraguay and we never really know for sure if the packages we order will arrive. That is the main reason. I download a lot this way, and I'm not afraid by the size of it. Sure it's easier to buy everything and just have it ready for use. And the package looks great. I know there is a lot of effort and work in such a collection, and even the download version should be paid. I'm a violin teacher myself, and do almost the same with my students.
Connie * VSM MEMBER * on November 17, 2011 @7:30 am PST
am a very beginner with violin, but love it and am looking forward to this package, Already have one of your instruction publications and am finding it very helpful.
Bright blessings to you!!
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 16, 2011 @9:12 pm PST
To Paul Janzen: what you have described is exactly one of the motivations we produced this package, which is to have everything organized on a "real" and durable support (as you know, hard disks can fail and files can get lost easily). As for your question, I don't understand why you would want to download the DVDs if you would get them "from real"? Please, tell me more... thanks!
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 16, 2011 @9:10 pm PST
To pat507: sure! Once the package will be ready to be ordered, you will be able to specify any shipping address you like :)
Paul Janzen * VSM MEMBER * on November 16, 2011 @6:35 am PST
Hi!
I have downloaded a lot of violin music, but because of a hard drive failure I lost all of that. I was happy to hear about this offer. My question is. Will there be an option to download these DVDs? Maybe even the Artwork so I can locally burn and print them out?
pat507 * VSM MEMBER * on November 16, 2011 @6:09 am PST

To Fencingcellist: thank you for your nice comment, that's exactly what we want to do: give musicians and music lover new tools and way to enjoy and play music. Thanks!
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 16, 2011 @6:03 am PST
To mona: thank you so much for your kind comment, I am very glad to know that! It is really appreciated.
Fencingcellist * VSM MEMBER * on November 16, 2011 @5:41 am PST
Thank you for putting together this wonderful package and your online resources in general. It is a wonderful help! :)
mona * VSM MEMBER * on November 16, 2011 @3:39 am PST
just wanted to let you know how much i like your arrangement of The Star Spangled Banner. My violin students played it at a Veterans Day program this past Monday. Wow! So many comments.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 14, 2011 @6:49 am PST
To Rudy: thank you Rudy for your kind comments. Of course, we have posted our announcement on both our FaceBook and Twitter pages. Thanks for the tip and stay tuned for the package release, coming very soon!
Rudy * VSM MEMBER * on November 14, 2011 @1:44 am PST
Why dont you post this website on facebook or twitter and make it more sociable and famous. I dont think many in India know about this website :-)
Rudy * VSM MEMBER * on November 14, 2011 @1:36 am PST
No questions. I am just waiting for its release.

Regards,
Rudolf
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 11, 2011 @10:08 am PST
To Dr. Akash Rose: thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it. And I also appreciate the fact you will buy this new package by understanding its real value the same way I do. Thank you very much again.
Dr. Akash Rose * VSM MEMBER * on November 11, 2011 @12:18 am PST
Dear Fabrizio, as you already know, I deeply admire your commitment and passion and consider your website a most valuable resource. Although I already have many of the titles listed, I would be delighted to own the set. I am also looking forward to using the Multimedia Files accompanying the book,'Basics of Violin Playing' as a further aid in teaching my young students.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @5:39 pm PST
To Anne Budd: the launch price will be $99. Learn more on the page below: http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/package/
Seval KADIOGLU on November 10, 2011 @4:30 pm PST
-The collection looks like nice. I think it will be very usefull for all level solo and chamber violin players.
(Maybe needs much more information or example about insides.)
Thank you Mr. Fabrizio
From Turkey
Anne Budd * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @3:49 pm PST
Cost?
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @10:01 am PST
To Hans: the package will be released probably in 10-12 days... but we are not 100% sure yet, that's why we haven't stated any specific date (yet). I will have confirmation from our fulfillment company on Monday, then I will let you know the exact date. But for sure by the end of this month (November). Thanks for your support! I am really excited too :)
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @9:58 am PST
To pat507: Unfortunately we have not published music by those composers yet (with the exception of Handel and Vivaldi). Please, keep in mind that the music on the DVDs of this package is the same music we have on the website. The advantage is that it is organized on DVD for offline enjoyment, ease of browsing and instant access - besides the fact, of course, that the package includes printed material like the violin book and the four scores.
Hans * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @9:52 am PST
When is this scheduled to become ready again? I had forgotten about this, and seeing what all it will contain am actually quite eager to get it!
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @9:39 am PST
To Lois: thank you for your understanding... you made me smile! Don't worry, you are not alone at all! And of course thank you your nice comment
JRojas * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @9:23 am PST
It looks like a great package to have all together, even maybe for the serious student that wants to get it all at once and get motivated!
Aldo Rodolfo Peralta * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @8:52 am PST
Exccellent Project
pat507 * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @8:44 am PST
Dear Fabrizio,

I have a question about this package (about it´s content)

recently my violin teacher ask me for some music sheet by some composers like G. Holländer, C. Dittersdorf, A. Janschinov, K. Krejci and Haendel & Vivaldi for metion some of them to get some to back to basis and purified my technique,

I did´nt found it in your mean list and I would like to know if this package get it

thanks a lot for all your work and kindness,

Best regards
Lois * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @6:55 am PST
I have to say that I was thoroughly amused by the email addressed to "Dear Fabrizio" - it made at least one 'technoincompetent' feel not so lonely!:-P (BTW the package looks and sounds awesome)
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @6:50 am PST
To Barry Sheehan: Hi Barry and thank you for your posted question. Well, DVD 1 includes PDF, MIDI and Mp3 files, whereas DVD 2, 3 and 4 include Mp3 accompaniment files. I am sorry that wasn't clear enough. Let me know if you have any more questions.
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on November 10, 2011 @6:47 am PST
Thank you for your support and sorry again for the wrong email. You know, technology sometimes doesn't work as it is supposed to be :) Thanks, and let's start discussing!
Barry Sheehan * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @6:36 am PST
hi, there is listing for DVD 1 displayed on the web page (528 titles and files, 7.94 GB) but what are contenst of other e DVDs, or doesone contain PDF another MIDI , MP3 etc ?
violino * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @6:18 am PST
I like the pieces in this DVDs.
It is good for playing started from beginner until high.
Try it!
Leslie * VSM MEMBER * on November 10, 2011 @6:16 am PST
No problem about the e-mail. As a musician working on her first coffee of the morning--I didn't even notice until you sent the second note. I have to sing today and have a violin duo rehearsal tonight, so as soon as my schedule permits, I'll check out the blogs, etc....
I need clones!!
Thanks for putting this together. It will be exciting and I need lots of rep!
Thanks, Fabrizio
