Masterclass videos by Itzhak Perlman

Edited: July 23, 2019, 1:44 PM · A question for my like-minded members. I have been curious about the Masterclass Series that is advertised on Instagram. There are many courses but the one I would like to read reviews on is the course Itzhak Perlman has put together. I am an adult (64) and have begun to learn Minuet No.1. My understanding Itzhak has put together 20 videos, of various lengths, of which you can download. The cost is $240 CDN. I was wondering if anyone has taken the course? Thanks for any thoughts.

Several have purchased this and can provide feedback from a beginner level. The main focus of the group is fiddle, but there are a few classically-minded members at different levels. If you're on FB you might want to drop in and ask about this after you check the blog here that was mentioned above.

Perlman has Youtube clips where much of what was covered in the MC has been covered for free.

For beginner/intermediate lessons there are great folks like ProfessorV, Nathan Cole, Roy Sonne, and many other resources that are more useful.

Several v.com contributers have Youtube channels that are also helpful.
