Who is this course for?
The ‘Fundamentals’ class is perfect for anyone who wants to get started in the best possible way with the violin. It’s also ideal if you’d like to try the violin for the first time, to see if it’s the right instrument for you.

Because the class covers foundations principles that are applicable at every level of violin playing, it is also a great choice for people returning to the violin after some time away, or for violinists who already play, but who would like a quick ‘refresher’ course covering the fundamental principles of good bowing and tone production.

You don't need any previous musical experience to take this course, and you don’t need to be able to read music notation, as the entire session is taught by ear.
