Will you neglect or BOOST your violin play this summer?

July 30, 2013 at 12:33 PM

When you stop practicing and taking violin lessons in the summer, your violin playing level will very likely go down...

When you use the extra time that is on your hands in the summer to take violin lessons and to practice more, you BOOST your violin play in the summer!!!

Watch this video to see me explain this principle with self made cartoons and to see me really make a fool of myself... ;)

Would you like to have some extra violin lessons this summer?

Is your teacher on holiday or don’t you have a teacher?

I can help you with giving your violin play a BOOST this summer.

Your teacher and friends will be amazed!

Would you like to have some Skype violin lessons with me... or just one?

I also give violin / fiddle lessons by Skype. Like you, I have a niche of my own. Sometimes I give regular weekly lessons a la traditional mode, but I also give lessons on an "as needed" basis. This is mostly for intermediate players, particularly players of folk music, who don't have the money or the inclination for more frequent lessons. Some of them live in areas which are several hours drive away from the nearest violin teacher. (This always surprises me because I have a wealth of violin teachers and good violin stores close to my home.) Many of these students are self taught. I can help them prepare to play for a special event, help them with difficult technical issues, or give them an evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses and advice on how to proceed. Many self taught fiddlers have taught themselves bad techniques, and I help them unlearn their old ways and learn correct ways. I always wish that I could have taught them as beginners so that I could teach them good technique from the very start.

To see a brief sample of my teaching, go to

I get unexpected enjoyment from such things as seeing a kangaroo whiz past the window of an Australian student. The world is becoming a global village, and I enjoy teaching and learning about people of different cultures all around the globe.

Welcome, Skype teaching colleague ;)

Yes, I love that Skype teaching makes the world a village. I also like meeting people all over the world. Although I didn't have the chance to see kangaroo's yet :D.
