Good explanation of correct technique for bowing and hand (upper arm)

Domnic Gomes

I have been learning violin for years and this is the first time being taught a proper way to learn to hold the bow, left hand and first finger. Thank you for showing it!

Jackson Lim

Great tips to help with correct tone and positioning and having a backup band makes it really fun!


Why am I doing this?

– It is my mission to make music education accessable for everyone, not just for those who can afford it. That’s it! Since I often visit countries where music education simply is no option, I can’t help thinking what would happen with all the talent out there which doesn’t get a chance to develop. My first intention to writing a new method and putting it online was for them. But what’s stopping you from taking advantage of this too? 🎻

Who is this for?– As mentioned, for everybody!! My youngest student is 5 years old; my oldest is in her 70’s; those who can afford it; those who cannot … Everybody! So yes! You too! ?

Am I putting teachers out of business?
– Absolutely not! quite the opposite. Allthough this method can be followed without a physical teacher, (it is built for this), following this method with a physical teacher will of coursebe the best option (if a teacher is available and the student can afford it). For teachers: your students can practice along with the videos (of ALL songs and exercises), as if a coach is helping them with practicing every day!As mentioned, it is all free!

What is included in the Creative Violin Method?

  • The book (E-book or printed version), being the method with chronologiaclly built up exercises and songs in many different music styles and even improvisation training, right from the first lesson!
  •  All Backing Tracks, these are the accompaniments of all songs and exercises in the book in MP3 format. Play your own home-concerts!
  • Interactive violin lessons online: videos of all exercises and songs (Montly subscription). You can practice with your online teacher every day! If you do not have a physical teacher, you will find  explanatory videos of all the techniques and exercises at the beginning of each lesson.
  • Free membership in the Creative Violin Facebook Group, where you can always post your progress and get professional feedback to be sure you are doing it right.

“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!

Steven D.

“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!”

Minodora C.

Get your questions answered

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.

We have a Creative Violin Facebook group with over 6000 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.

If you really get stuck, I can invite you to come online 1 on 1.

In any case, you will never be studying alone.

So why wait for your dream to come true?

Here it is, for just €27,97!

Great course with very nice follow along practice songs. I really like the approach, tempo and the positivity.
Willard Jansen

Geweldig !!! Ik ben nog nooit zo enthousiast geweest over het spelen van viool. Het is echt leuk, ik hoef niet in een orkest te gaan spelen, gewoon genieten van het zelf bezig zijn met muziek !!! Het was van mijn jeugd geleden dat ik nog zoveel muziek heb gedaan, en het komt allemaal terug !!! een oude liefde teruggevonden maar wel op een ontspannen manier !!! Dank je wel !!!

Kristel Cromheeke

Very clear instruction

Laura S

Excellent course! Xander is a great teacher. I love the backing tracks that accompany the practice lessons. Thank you!
Irene Kaiser

I really like the way he is teaching.

Eliasib Gil Peña

Ich glaube ich hatte noch nie so viel Spaß bei Anfängerübungen für die Violine. Direkt zu improvisieren macht sehr viel Spaß und motiviert direkt, Sachen auszuprobieren. Vielen Dank für die tolle Einführung und weiter so!
