for Learners, Parents, Teachers and Schools
At ViolinSchool, we’re obsessed with the sequence of our violin curriculum, because we know that the smoother the sequence, the quicker and more easily a violinist can learn.
That's why we continually upgrade and refresh the sequence of learning materials that we publish.
Today we're announcing a major upgrade to our curriculum, several new courses, and a series of new coursebooks, which will be available to pre-order from late June 2020.
For now, we've focused on Beginner and Intermediate levels. Next will be the Violin Teacher Training course (available from August 2020, in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy of Music), followed by Advanced level courses in 2021.
If you'd like to know more, here's a deeper explanation of the new course structures ...
A Holistic Approach
ViolinSchool courses are built on the principle that you're not just learning to play the violin ... you're also learning to be a musician and a performer too.
As you build up your technical violin skills using our courses and ever-growing library of learning resources, you'll also be developing your rhythm, musicianship, music theory, sight-reading ... and many other topics that are essential for good violin playing!
Each one of these important areas of skill is completely integrated into the course structures.
Changes To Expect
If you're already learning with ViolinSchool, or you're a teacher who's already using our books and course materials, then here are the changes you can expect from our recent upgrade:
For Learners, Teachers and Schools
We’ve spent a enormous amount of time refining the sequence of activities, skills and tutorials that move learners smoothly from beginner to intermediate level and beyond.
If you're a learner (or parent), you can use all of these resources on your own, or with the help of our coaching team, or with your own teacher.
If you're a teacher, our new courses come with lesson-by-lesson teacher notes, so you can save time and help your school class or private students make amazing progress really really quickly (also - keep an eye out for our new Violin Teacher Training Course, which will be available soon in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy of Music).
The new course sequence will be fully mapped to the major Exam boards such as ABRSM, Trinity, AMEB and RIAM, so that you can take an exam with confidence. For example, if you've completed Level 1 at ViolinSchool, you'll be at a level where you can take take a Grade 1 exam with any of the major exam boards.
We're rolling out the new courses to existing ViolinSchool members from today, and new lessons are being added daily on ViolinSchool.com.
Each new lesson and video tutorial will be featured on the ViolinSchool Blog, or you can join our mailing list for a weekly update on new lessons as they become available.
Coaching: If you need more guidance and accountability to help achieve your goals, then can enrol with our Coaching Team from US$479 per term, or we can refer you to a local teacher or music school in your area.
