News February 2019
I wish all visitors of my website a happy, healthy and musical 2019! This year I hope to publish my violin method , together with co-author Jaap Kastelein. This violin-method is called "Violin World" (part 1) and will be published by Jaap Kastelein Educatieve Muziek & Media. Hal Leonard Europe will take care of the distribution. The method is highly innovative and written for players from 7 years and is suitable for both individual and group education. The volume of the method is supported by a website. On this website you can find MP3s with follow-up assignments and listening examples, films on which exercises are performed and PDFs of violin and piano accompaniments of all the recital pieces. The method provides a nice balance between auditory learning and sheet playing, between technical development and pleasure by playing, between learning from the traditional book and with the help of modern media.
First the method will be published in Dutch, but translations in English, German and French will follow soon!
