What's so new about the Creative Violin Method?

  • This complete beginners method has the same chronological build as many other methods, but...
  • Instead of only classic (like most methods) there are many music styles featured, which makes it so much more fun to study from.
    Say goodbye to motivation isues!
  • Study with your teacher, practice daily with the videos (of all songs and exercises).
    Our videos are found on our YouTube channel
  • Or if you have no teacher, study from the videos, all techniques are explained in detail in the first video of each lesson.
  • Play along with the backing-tracks (accompaniments) and host your own house concerts.
    Backing-tracks are available for every song and exercise in the book and are included in the E-book.
  • Newest feature: Improvise right from the very beginning!!
    Improvising stimulates the creative mind and is so much fun to do.
    If you are a teacher you can simply integrate these improvisation parts in your lessons, your students will love them!
    No improvisation skills required!

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

"This is by far the most engaging online course"

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.

"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!”

Everybody keeps telling me "violin is the most difficult instrument on the planet"...

FAQ Beginners Course

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?

This can be done in 3 ways:

1- First of all there are the weekly LIVE classes online.
Depending on your plan you can either participate actively or watch the live lessons from an audience seat.
(You learn a LOT by looking at others!)

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 3rd 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.

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

In any case, you will never be studying alone from now on.
