Registration for our 2017 Workshops is now open!

This year we are hosting two workshops: one in Austin, and one in England! 

I can't wait to meet you European Violin Labbers! We've looked forward to this workshop for some years now, and thanks to Lily Mo, it is a reality!

Europe workshop: May 14th-19th, 2017

Benslow Music 
Benslow Lane  

Check in is @5:00 on the 14th. Our first event will be on the 15th. Check out is lunchtime on the 19th.

This workshop will be held at Benslow Music, a lovely venue purposed for large musical gatherings. Everyone stays, plays,  and eats on campus, so there will be lots of togetherness. This year I will be bringing my great friend and colleague Stephen Redfield. If you don't know Stephen, watch his interviews on Violin Lab. He is a consummate violinist and musician. We are already planning some very interesting technique classes, and are choosing some fun violin ensemble music. I can't wait.
The workshop fee is $425. (We do have some financial assistance available if you are coming from outside the European Union and are unable to afford the full tuition price).
The housing AND food fee is 525 for the duration of the workshop. If you would like to come earlier, or stay longer, you can book directly through Benslow.

Austin workshop:  June 13th-17th, 2017

Location:  1111 W. Anderson Ln.  Austin, TX 78757

Our first even will be at 6:30 pm on the 13th. You'll be able to check in to the houses as early as Sunday or Monday.

Our Austin workshops are now a yearly tradition! This year, Laurie Scott, myself, and Bill Dick will host another fun session full of exciting activities. We will also be accommodating various levels of players, so for those of you who are in the beginning stages of learning, we will have an ensemble just for you! We'll also have our intermediate/advanced ensemble as well.  As in the past, we'll be renting houses near the venue for group housing. Those who have stayed in houses in the past have enjoyed immensely the experience of bonding with the other participants . 

The workshop fee not including housing is $425
The workshop fee with housing (houses are rented the entire week of June 11-17) is $950
