is Still Down

September 5, 2017, 11:39 AM · I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but is down, and has been since at least Thursday of last week (the first time I had tried to access it in a few weeks). I hope it's not gone for good, it was probably the best resource on the internet for violin playing besides the forums here.

September 8, 2017, 12:12 PM · The wayback machine! Of course, I should have thought of that. Thank you!
Edited: September 8, 2017, 5:18 PM · Has anybody contacted the site to ask if they've closed it permanently? It could be they just forgot to pay their hosting bill... :)

I've also just noticed that through which the email contact for the violinmasterclass site goes ( is down as well.
