What our students say:

Minodora C.

“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!”

 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.”

 Nicholas F.

“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!”

 Timo’s mum, Deborah T.

“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!”

* Terms and Conditions

There are many free beginners courses on YouTube, why sign up at Creative Violin?

You should only sign up to Creative Violin if you really want to learn how to play the violin the correct way.
You will get personal guidance, so you will be sure you are doing it right.
Learning from random YouTube videos will never get you to a level further than playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
– Browsing for your own lessons on YouTube will not give you all you need to know to get further, it will also take you much longer to find the right ones, if you will find them at all.
– Creative Violin offers a complete course to reach a moderate advanced level.
– Essential for good progress is personal feedback, YouTube teachers don’t provide that. Creative Violin does. That’s one of the reasons it cannot be free, but really isn’t expensive either. We look over your shoulder so you will never be doing this on your own.
We are here for you!

Will you continue uploads?


The improvisation course is developing, so new lessons will be added frequently.

Besides that we are planning to add masterclasses with different teachers, dive deeper into topics at our students requests and keep adding new exercises.

So you never have nothing to do!

Your Teacher

Xander Nichting

is music embodied, he is a solo artist, music director, composer, arranger and violinist.
He composes his own music and writes and produces extensively for other artists.

Xander was the first to graduate from the Conservatory in the Netherlands with his six-string electric violin, and has continued to perfect his musical abilities every day.
At a young age, Xander found music by playing with a local gypsy group .
That group helped hone his interest in jazz and pop music, which formed the basis for his violin work and his style of music today.

As a teacher:

Xander is the author of the new violin method Creative Violin, which has been released in April 2017.

Based on his many years in violin education the need for a new method resulted in “Creative Violin”, which guides the student through classical music as well as pop, jazz, country and world music, all styles where the violin has claimed a prominent position.
Even improvisation on violin finds its way to the student, right from the beginning!
