  • Play Violin For Your Friends

    Joanna Forna Classical Violin Teacher (North London) Picture When I was a child, at the beginning of my violinist 'career', my mom would always ask me to play for the guests we had. At the beginning, when I was about 7-8, I was really enjoying showing off my talent. However, after a few years, I was dreading it, even hiding sometimes so that my mum...

  • The Importance of Performance

    Rebecca Smith Classical Violin Teacher (Edinburgh) Picture I believe it is important to always have a goal when learning an instrument. Many students choose to work towards exams, which is fine. But I believe teachers should encourage their students to also get used to performing from an early stage. I'm not talking about standing on a lonely stage, in...
