Hey everybody, this is Joe. I am Lora’s handyman at Red Desert: technical assistant, editorial gatekeeper, etc. I’m here to let you in on a little secret that has been brewing for more than a year here behind the scenes.

Announcing the Violin Question and Answer Archive

Lora and I work hard to make Red Desert Violin the one-stop-shop for any of your violin-related questions. Lora has been in your shoes and sat in your seat. She gets a lot of questions and has spent many many hours typing out detailed answers. I don’t overstate when I say that she is the most giving teacher I have ever seen.

So I am really proud to announce the Red Desert Violin Question and Answer Archive, which is now live.

This document is a treasure trove based on Lora’s years of experience as a professional teacher and violinist and collects questions from emails, blog comments, and member-only sections, along with Lora’s thorough answers.
