This is Pauline’s story
In Kenya it can be quite the challenge to follow a dream like playing violin.
But she knew what she wanted and made it happen.
Not having a violin teacher in her neighbourhood she was destined to look for lessons online.
The downside to online tutorials like on Youtube, was that there was no feedback, she never knew if she was doing it right.
Until she ended up at Creative Violin.
“Now the lessons are organized, I no longer have to search for the next lesson, and I can log in weekly to get live instructions in Xander’s live lessons”.
All part of the membership.

"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!”

"Xander's Creative Violin Improvisation course is the perfect launch pad for violinists wanting to break into improvisatory playing and the wider field of jazz.
Step by step, carefully and clearly, he guides you through the basics of blues playing, swing, manouche and more, providing charts and backing tracks along the way to enable you to develop the requisite skills.
Doesn't get better!”

Theresa A

“Being 63 I have never played an instrument and was uncertain if I could learn the violin.
Xander’s online classes have dispelled my doubts.
His instruction is clear and understandable.
Thank you for not only teaching me the violin but also making the experience enjoyable with your cheerful and encouraging demeanor.”

My daughter, Anna, is 8 years old.
She started to play the violin in September.
It's amazing to see what she can play already thanks to the Creative Violin method!
It's a constructive method with improvisations, background music and different styles of music.
The accompanying music stimulates to play the violin.
Xander is a great teacher!
He knows how to motivate my daughter!

“Xander is a fantastic teacher !
He gets his pupils to improve their playing rapidly, in a fun and motivating way.
His method, Creative Violin, takes us through different musical styles from classical to country music, trying out well-known musicals, and learning how to improvise along the way.
Thanks to the backing tracks, you not only learn to play in rhythm, together with an orchestra, but can even give a concert for your family and friends!
My 7-years old son Timo is a huge fan.
I definitely recommend this site!”

This course 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.

I follow the lessons for a while now.
For me the great benefit is that I can study when I want.
Another benefit is that because it is an online course I can watch parts that I need to practice more over and over again.
The loop function (AB Looper) makes it possible that you can rehearse a certain part as many times you need.
I went from scratching the violin to actually playing it.
And I am very happy.
Thank you Xander for setting up this course.

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’ve been playing violin for about a year and half while being all self taught.
I heard about Creative Violin through a Facebook group I frequent and decided to give it a try.
The lessons are well put together and in an easy to understand, logical order.
Xander is a friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough instructor.
Not only are the lessons well developed, but he also puts on free seminars to help grasp the basic and more advanced concepts.
Highly recommended!

I couldn’t read music, was totally new to the violin.
Xander taught me (and still does) with much patience, understanding and much encouragement.
Lessons are at home or via Skype.
Not only the playing techniques, but specially the fun in playing the violin are important.
Xander (Creative Violin) is THE violin teacher to achieve those results.

About us

The Story Behind Creative Violin

After years of teaching different methods I have always missed some important items: different music styles, improvisation, …
In addition to Classical music, the violin also plays an important role in Jazz, World Music, Country / Bluegrass, Irish, Balkan, Gypsy.
For the first time these music styles are featured in the Creative Violin Method, which makes it so much fun for beginners.
You will even learn how to improvise on the violin, right from lesson 1 !!
This variety boosts motivation and stimulates creative thinking.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I too old to start with violin lessons?

You are never too old !!

The oldest student (as far as I know) is 70 and just started a few years ago.
Of course you should not expect to become a world class soloist, but that is not the point.

Having fun in what you do makes the level you are at completely unimportant.
Progress may be a little slower compared to children, but the fun you get out of it is what it’s all about, priceless!

And yes, feel free to challenge yourself, it is possible endlessly!

Why Creative Violin, and not some other method?

Motivation problems are everywhere.
If a method does not offer variety, it can quickly become boring and the student drops out.

At Creative Violin you will immediately come across different music styles, such as Classical (of course), but also Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Balkan, World music, Irish, Gypsy …
And, last but not least: you will learn to improvise on the violin, from the very first lesson !!

In addition, there are accompaniments for ALL songs and exercises, even the scales have accompaniments.
These are the Backing Tracks (BTs), not only piano accompaniments, but also orchestras, bands, gypsy orchestras, string quartets …

Variety, lots of variety. Great fun to do.

How does personal guidance work? (Personal feedback)

This can be done in 3 ways:

1- First there are weekly LIVE lessons, which you can join for free!
This is exactly what you get if you study at a music academy, you go to 1-on-1 lessons every week.
You can do the same here, and benefit from all the extra features like practicing online with me 24/7, you will find a video of each lesson and song in the method.
Practicing will go a LOT faster and better this way.
(You won’t find that at any music academy).

2- There is a Creative Violin Facebook group with over 3400 members.
This is intended for the students who can post their progress videos there.
This is where we will give you the feedback you need.
In the beginning I mainly pay attention to the posture (crucial for correct progress!), you will be sure that you are on the right track.

3- The other way (if you want more privacy) is to send an email with your video to video@creativeviolin.com.
If the video is too large, it can also be sent to this address with WeTransfer (wetransfer.com). This service is free.
I will send you an email with your personal feedback.

So, you will never be studying alone anymore!

Is there a money back guarantee?

Yes, you can determine for up to 90 days (!!) whether it is something for you or not.
I want to give you the time to gain a lot of experience before you decide.
If this course is not for you, we will simply refund the amount (*), without asking questions.

* There is only 1 restriction that you may not have downloaded more than 30% of the downloads, in which case the right to a refund expires.
