Workshop Dates 2018 

We are thrilled to announce our workshop dates for 2018!  We will host two workshops this summer to give more people the opportunity to attend.


I have worked for ten years to make Violin Lab a supportive online community. However, some experiences ensemble playing, hands-on lessons, interactive master classes require in-person interaction. We created our five day workshop to give students of all levels the chance to work one-on-one with professional musicians, learn from each other and connect with other violinists on the same journey.


Wherever you are in that journey, please join us for five days of


  • Ensemble Playing. We have two ensemble groups to accommodate the needs of both beginners and more advanced players. All your hard work culminates in a concert on the final day.


  • Master Classes. While it's not mandatory, it's an opportunity not to be missed. Our master classes focus on group learning. Each participant takes a solo turn playing for me or one of our other faculty members in front of the whole group.  Playing in front of your peers for Master Classes certainly does seem frightening, and and while nerves are a natural, everyone also feels the incredible support flowing from other attendees. The benefits of watching someone else be taught is huge.


  • Private Lesson. We love to meeting you all in person! Everyone who attends the workshop will have a one hour private lesson with either me or one of our other master teachers.


  • Technique Classes. Each day of the workshop we present a technique class designed for any level of player. Our goal with these classes is to give you new tools and knowledge so that as soon as you get home, you have loads of new practice materials as well as fresh perspectives.


It's difficult to find the words to describe our workshops, so here some links to community posts by those who have attended.
