  • The Importance Of Personal Musical Interpretation Editor's Pick

    Vincenzo Castronovo Classical Violin Teacher (South West London) Picture Some violin tutors fall into the habit of tutoring their students mainly in the theoretical aspect of learning violin. However, what is sometimes overlooked and under-valued is for the student to learn the importance of combining their own individual interpretation with the theory. When...

  • How To Get The Best Learning From An Instrument

    Cindy Foster Classical Violin Teacher (South East London) Picture When a young student has found their teacher, at school or privately, it's important to form a good working relationship. A good teacher will establish exactly what they expect of you regarding practice and attendance of lessons. Perhaps the teacher has outside and professional commitments which...
