Teacher wanted in coastal France and Italy

February 25, 2006 at 11:44 PM · I am looking for a violin teacher who can bring on my technique while Iam travelling in Europe. At the moment my family and I are in St Tropez in France on our boat "Puffin" we are making our way along the coast to Nice and then Italy. If anyone is available for a few lessons please let me know. If anyone has any suggestions that will help me keep my skills together then post back. Take a look at my website if you are interested in our journey. www.wavydays.co.uk

What a great thing to do for two years of your life! I love that area of France, but sadly will not be there to give you lessons.........however if you do sail to Vancouver Canada some day I'd be happy to help. In the meantime, check out www.violinmasterclass.com for some assistance while on the road. This site will also give you great feedback on any questions. Perhaps you could find someone who you could send a video feed of your playing ?

March 1, 2006 at 05:20 PM · Hello again,

I,m looking for violin lessons in the towns I visit. I have a bike so can travel a little. We couldnt really accommodate someone on the boat to live with us. It has been suggested that maybe conservatory students may be willing to teach, are there any students out there. I,ve only just passed my grade 5. Will work on getting an audio clip together.
