Learn to play Bach without accompaniment and increase your independence as a musician!

Once you’ve started violin, you should learn to play a crowd pleasing piece by J.S. Bach.
You might be thinking “No, no…I couldn’t possibly do that yet”
Yes you can! Don’t get intimidated.

Even if for just one measure, just by thinking about the vector of the sound (strength, direction), phrase creation, and bowing and fingering possibilities, you will cultivate your ability to think on your own.
In the past, songs themselves were treated as etudes.

Even professionals worry about how to play famous songs, that’s why they are so fun to play!
In this full blown hour class, you will build up the ability to practice and perform on your own while reading the music.

One day you’ll get to chaconnes (^O^)/
