Who is the Violin Fundamentals class for?

Anyone who wants to refine their core techniques and bowing!

For Beginners: the Fundamentals is a perfect 'taster' course if you'd like to see if the violin is right for you ... and an essential foundation if you've already decided to commit to learning the violin!

In just a couple of hours you'll be able to play all the strings of the violin with a beautiful sound, and perform to others with clarity and confidence.

For Restarters: reawaken everything you once learnt about how to play the violin!

For Intermediate Players and above: Check your core technique is free, flexible, relaxed and consistent! Revise the fundamentals of smooth bowing, troubleshoot any posture or tension issues, and generate a beautiful sound ... every time!
