12 lessons course

Havas New Approach fundamentals


Each lesson covers one aspect of playing a string instrument.

(e.g. fundamental balances, the stance, the violin hold, the bow hold etc.)

The basics are always the same!

What's really important is how you use your body, since the instrument and the bow by themselves cannot do anything, they don't play.

"I have every confidence that Caroline Duffner, violin, and Monica Cuneo, viola, can continue my Summer School at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford. Both have studied with me many years and are very experienced New Approach teachers as well as accomplished performers."
