Creative Violin Book 1 & Book 2

"After the first lesson I could already play a tune"

"This is by far the most engaging online method"

This method is focused, highly motivating and has increased my skill level considerably in a very short time.
The interactions with the teacher in the improvisation exercises gives one a real sense of ownership of the instrument (not to mention the thrill of playing along with another musician right from lesson one!)
The ability to ask questions during live webinars is also invaluable.
This is by far the most engaging online course and is just as immersive as learning with a teacher in person.
Xander's enthusiasm is absolutely infectious.
Thank you for this fantastic resource.

"In a word, he's thorough"

Mr. Nichting, Creative Violin, is covering a lot of necessary techniques that I haven't seen in other tutorials or books.
Other instructors seem to just hope we'll figure out these points by trial and error (for example, when to switch from upper arm to elbow motion when bowing).
In a word, he's thorough!

"I even started improvising in the first lessons"

"I got dizzy searching the internet and YouTube for violin lessons.
When I found Creative Violin I felt I was in heaven!
Creative Violin is a straight forward website where you will find everything about violin lessons.
All the video’s make it feel I have a teacher standing next to me all the time when I study.
I even started improvising in the first lessons!”
