Videos of very different violin and viola players

Some other videos


Here is a list of the instruction videos we have already made.

Can you think of a song or game you would like to teach the others and develop a plan for how to do it. We can make the video together.

Ode an die Freude, with Alyona

ICS March, with Olivia, Sophie, Lola, Neela and Rosa


Here some links to videos of very different violin and viola players. I like them all!

Check out their bowing hands. What are the differences? And what do they all have in common?


If you would like to play some of this music: let me know!

And if you would like to share favourite videos of yours with your colleague students, send me the links and I will put them in this list.

Have fun!

Some more music videos

A cat enjoying music.

For those that like to watch some long films, there are beautiful documentaries about Nathan Milstein and about Jascha Heifetz.

And a very nice short video about easy and hard.

Here are the SoMi notes for the song that the girl is playing.
You can choose your own "Do".
Can you write the song in notes?


Another video with the same violinist, Itzak Perlman, playing Beethoven with Telly in Sesamestreet. Notes will follow soon, but for those that like to start already: G = Do and you start on Mi.
