 Violin & Viola Coaching

My personalised Online Violin/Viola Coaching will give you the fundamental music theories and techniques you need to succeed in your practice. Forget the lack of time for studying, keeping your motivation up or not having a clear roadmap for your practice. 
 
All this in a straightforward and easy way to understand adjusted to every level. I will help you be aware of the interlocking mechanisms between your body and the instrument with a training I’ve tested in my daily practice as a professional touring musician.
 
As a result I’ve developed a plan with exercises specific weekly challenges. My classes are for violin and viola students of all levels who wish to develop their own musical personality as well a solid technique.

With this program you'll learn that playing violin & viola is easy... if you know how! 

VIOLIN FUNDAMENTALS

What you'll learn

Master a solid technical foundation 

and get rid of bad old habits by understanding the fundamental principles of violin technique. Learn how to integrate your daily movements in the approach to the instrument. Bringing awareness and balance to your playing.

Tools for making your practice work for you

by simultaneously learning about music theory and history  you will be able to become independent and creative in your own practice. As a result you'll expand your musical influences and develop your creativity.

Create a reliable study routine

that will keep you motivated by saving you time. I will help you find out what works best for you, by showing you the most effective steps tailored to your needs. You will learn how to study properly and effectively.

Nurture a positive and encouraging inner critic

by understanding your thought process you will be able to optimise your playing. Many times your beliefs may hold you back from reaching your desired goals. This is the reason why it is important to address our limiting beliefs through the correct use of language.

Develop your own musical ideas

you will be capable to adapt new exercises to your own evolving musical needs. Our main goal is that you learn the tools that will ultimately help you communicate emotions, musical ideas and develop your own musical personality.

After 20 years of teaching and helping students find their own organic way, I’ve developed a straightforward process that works for you if you are:

Ready to create a consistent practice 

 

Stuck with old habits with no idea how to improve your technique 

 

Waiting for the evasive perfect moment when you feel good enough to play in front of someone else

 

Struggling to find the time to practice

 

Just getting started and think playing violin requires a special talent

 

You're in the right place and I'm going to help you and give you the knowledge, tools and guidance you need to finally achieve your violin playing goals.
