Are you looking for online violin lessons? Would you like to take part in some music tutorials with your children? Or are your kids missing their cello and violin class? Join GRAMMY award-winning violinist Nicola Benedetti, who has launched a series of brilliant online music tutorials through her music education foundation, The Benedetti Foundation. Kids and adults alike can expect an engaging, free and fun introductory music workshop for children and adults. The sessions are now available to view on both IGTV and the Benedetti Foundation Facebook page for anyone who was unable to watch live.
This brilliant class is open to everyone of all ages. For each workshop, you'll need a string instrument (if you have one), your voice and lots of enthusiasm, and you'll learn how to warm up and get to grips with your string instrument. It’s an incredible opportunity to have a talented celebrity tutor whilst learning from home. Nicola has different percussion, cello and violin teachers, who will be teaching you everything from how to hold a bow to how to hold your neck whilst playing. Classes are a mix of technical, creative and wellbeing sessions, and they are the perfect opportunity to open up your little musician's musical avenues. Tutors will also teach some music theory as well.
Whether you have always wanted lessons in violin, cello, double bass or are just a massive fan of chamber music, these classes are something you don't want to miss. When you have finished cello, double bass and violin lessons, kids and adults can experience a final celebration concert: The Grand Finale. You're all encouraged to take part and share what you've learnt on this course. You don't have to be students at the Royal Academy of Music in London to enjoy playing a musical instrument. The perfect percussion, cello or violin tuition for everyone!
This is the ideal way to have double bass, cello or violin tuition without having to leave home! If you are interested in watching more gigs at home, check out the Couch Concerts sessions, and if you prefer not to be a solo performer, why not enjoy a sing-along instead with Emerson Waldorf School.
