Violin pedagogy

My violin teaching is based on firm principles, looking at the simplest way for the student to achieve the most they can.

I look at the bases of bowing and of left hand technique with a strong emphasis on ergonomics and the simple physics of the violin and bow.

I also teach approaches to improvisation, which apply to any front line instrument as well as violin. Have a look at my articles to get an idea of my approach

I can also teach via Skype. My Skype name is "gcviolin"
