Learn the basics of playing the Viola.
This is a beginning Viola course that is available with your Sessions Academy membership.

Take this course at your own pace, but practice daily. The more you practice the easier it will be to pick up the patterns.
You will need the O’Connor Viola Method Book 1 for this course.
