Your dream is to play the violin and/or viola... but where do you start? What are the first steps?

In this video I take you through my system of teaching and the first 15 steps I take with (child and adult) beginner violinists and violists. I explain how this gets you making and enjoying music as soon as possible, creating a beautiful tone (no scratching and squeaking!), playing relaxed and having freedom on the violin and viola.

Does my system and it’s results speak to you? (if not, that’s ok too) I can help you! I offer this system to you in an online program, which is affordable, flexible and accessible for violinists and violists (to be) all over the world. Please click here for more information!
