SELF-GUIDED COURSES

Welcome! I'm so glad you're interested in improving your violin skill. Or, taking it from the beginning! It takes a lot of courage and hard work to do this on your own, but I'm here to help. 

I've created four courses to address the most popular topics with adult violin students. Once you've completed the Beginner Violin Course, you should start browsing the Sheet Music Library for more tunes to play. Once you complete the Late  Beginner Violin Course, you'll know every single note on the staff, so you'll be able to play any song you like.

Learn at your own pace.

Sometimes you need to take things at you own speed. Our self-guided courses are perfect for this. Take as long as you need on each level. You can review the material as much as you like.

And, from Sept 22 - Dec 13, 2020 you'll have access to Open Office Hours hosted by the me the author. I want to make sure you succeed, so I'm opening myself up to any and all questions and progress checks to make sure you are moving ahead at full speed.

“I cannot recommend NYC Violin Studio enough. I have been to other schools in NYC and this is by far the best. The instruction is fantastic. I think the instructors understand that most of the students aren’t planning on becoming concert violinists, so they focus on teaching interesting pieces while providing enough theory and technique to improve without completely overwhelming us. Truly top notch professionals who make the class fun!
