I do not know how to read music yet; which means I do not know how to play the violin either.
I was looking online for violin lessons and I was just wondering if someone who gives lessons also teaches you how to read music.
Would anyone have any ideas of where I should start?

A good music teacher will, of course, teach you how to read music. It's really not as hard as it looks. I learned to play the violin in high school and, after 15+ years of not playing, my dad bought me a new violin and I've had to reteach myself everything. I got the Essential Elements for violin book and it will teach you the fundamentals (it's made for all ages, my oldest had the same one for clarinet in 4th grade). Even though I played years ago (in my high school orchestra) I've been using it and it's very helpful. It's amazing how much stuff you can forget even after doing it for years, lol.
