Welcome to our Intermediate Violin Course D, a 10-week in-person program (90 minutes per week), designed to help you take your violin playing to the next level.

Whether you're fairly new to the violin or have been playing for some time, this course will help you to consolidate your foundational skills, and then begin the journey of building a comprehensive, reliable playing technique, whilst expanding your repertoire.

You'll also learn:

  • Violin Technique: Refine your existing technique, then start to build the skills you need to tackle more advanced repertoire.
  • Reading Music: Become more and more fluent with your music reading, and become confident with sight-reading new music.
  • How to Practise: Learn how to practise effectively in order to develop a secure technique and make speedy progress.
  • How to Perform: Develop the skills and confidence to perform in front of a live audience!

Course Curriculum
In this 10-week course, you will explore a wide range of topics, including:

  • Vibrato
  • Chromatic Scales
  • Intonation (playing in tune)
  • Double Stopping
  • Tone Production
  • Harmonics
  • Sight-Reading
  • Shifting
  • Bowing Techniques
  • Coordination and Dexterity
  • Rhythm and Pulse
  • Practising

Who is this course for?
This course is perfect for committed violinists who want to take their playing to the next level. It's ideal for anyone who has already completed the Beginner Violin Course, or who can play fluently across the whole of 1st position using all four fingers.

Why take this course

  • Personal Development - Connect with your creative side, and develop practice methods and performance techniques that will can be transferred to many other areas of your life!
  • Meet Likeminded Learners - London String School learners come from all sorts of backgrounds and walks of life,
  • Take Time for Yourself! In our busy, connected, city lives, there's rarely a time to stop and disconnect. Switch off to focus entirely on the violin, and 90 minutes later you'll emerge refreshed and energised by the power of music!

Course Requirements
To enroll in this course, you'll need your own violin and bow. We also recommend buying a music stand.

To take part in Course D you will need to be playing fluently in 1st position (in time, in tune with a good sound) and have some knowledge of 3rd position and minor scale patterns.

Course Certification
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a record of achievement certifying that you have completed Violin Course D!

Course Instructor
David Worswick, the lead tutor of London String School, will guide you through this learning journey. David has years of experience both as a teacher and performer, and was previously a first violinist in the London Symphony Orchestra. He is a kind, caring teacher who brings a wealth of knowledge and practical insights to help you succeed.

Here's what some of our past students have said about our courses:

”[You have] enabled me to relearn the violin! Over the last few years I’ve gone from playing open strings to grade 5, enjoying performing solos and a wide variety of group numbers along the way. With no auditions or minimum standard it really is open to all and a great supportive environment!” - Georgina

“This violin school has the best teachers in the country!” - Domini
