Frequently Asked Questions

We made this course SPECIALLY for you!
Many violinists start with a classical education, always playing from scores.
It might seem intimidating at first to close the books and start with intuitive playing, but we will guide you through this process in a fun and easy way, all hands-on and from the VERY start!
We will train this with the interactive videos, I play 2 bars, you play 2, this way you will learn the “vocabulary” in a natural way.
Try this for free in a few videos in lesson 1: tabs 1, 2, 3 and 4 are free.

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!
