This study aims to determine the opinions of students, parents, researchers and the domain experts regarding the implementation and effect of distant internet-aided training model in the amateur violin training at the beginner-level with the Suzuki method. In this regard, duplex interactive conference and non-online communication systems were used with a six-year-old student differently from the ordinary one-to-one lesson period, and beginner level violin training and two "house concerts" were carried out in four weeks-eight sessions. The data of this study in which the qualitative research design was employed consists of the opinions of domain experts, students, parents, the journals of students and the field notes of the researcher regarding the student performance and distant Suzuki method. As a result of the study which was reported by descriptive analysis, it was observed that the target behaviors were acquired in terms of the student's technical competence and musicality regarding to play violin and basic music theory. The results of this study are believed to contribute to the development of the distant instrument training. Internet-aided mobile technology tools can be suggested for the people who cannot access face-to-face violin training permanently or temporarily due to transportation, health, isolation and physical reasons to pursue their training.
