    Hi Carlos, Thanks for watching! We are certainly covering 'musicality basics' in this challenge/workshop (i.e., acknowledging style and background, musical structure, and harmony for the purposes of finding deeper musicality in our performances) but in terms of 'violin' technical basics, How To Be A MUSICAL Ninja won't be focussed on this subject, I'm afraid.
