Free online Live Classes this Month

"Shifting" by Vivian Waters, violin

Do you ever worry just before shifting positions … will my note be too high, too low, will it be too fast, too slow … where is it anyway? 
As intermediate and advanced string players, we are constantly confronted with this ‘basic’ technical problem. How can we finally relax, feel good about shifting and get on with the music making?

Come to this webinar on shifting to learn secrets you may not have previously heard. We will learn tricks of the trade shared by famous teachers and performers. Come see if some of these will help you! These principles work on all string instruments.

Suitable for intermediate and advanced string players.

Register here for Vivian's free online class on 25th April at 11am BST
Register here for Vivian's free online class on 26th April at 8pm BST

Teacher Training

Some of our clients have asked if we can provide a certificated teacher training course for violin and viola players. This is something we have looked into and which would love to do! The course has been written, and we envisage that the first cohort of students will be able to start the course in September 2017.

This will be a unique course, as it will be entirely  online! 

If this is something you are interested in, please find out more using the button below and we will keep you updated about the latest developments.

New: Video Feedback Service

Most people feel more comfortable playing at home than in a violin lesson. You can now record your own playing on video and send it to us for constructive feedback. Henriette will record her own personalised video for you, which you will receive in your inbox. Getting better at playing the violin could not be easier!
