If you’re a violin student – and want to break down your technical barriers, expand your repertoire, and dive deeper into your passion for the instrument – a new learning experience is here. Tone Based Violin is now online!
tonebase has been a leader in online music education since 2017, with groundbreaking platforms for classical guitar and piano. On these platforms, thousands of members are already enjoying over 1,000 high-quality video tutorials and growing as musicians every day.
Now, since the launch of tonebase Violin on July 11, new members will have access to an extensive digital library of lessons and courses on violin repertoire, theory, technique and more at their fingertips.
Over 20 world-renowned violinists are currently teaching on tonebase, with many more planned for productions in the near future. They include longtime New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow, Shanghai Isaac Stern Competition winner Nancy Zhou, multi-talented artist and soloist Aleksey Igudesman, Grammy Award winner Augustin Hadelich and professor at the Yale School of Music, Philadelphia Orchestra concertmaster and renowned pedagogue David Kim, and pioneering multi-genre virtuoso Gilles Apap, to name but a few.
A huge range of repertoire and theory is covered on the platform, with plenty more content on the way. Members now have access to David Kim’s orchestral excerpt tutorials on Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in D Major, Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony and Mendelssohn’s Scherzo from Dream of a summer night; Nancy Zhou’s lessons on DC Dounis’ proven exercises for hand position, bowing and intonation; and Gilles Apap’s explorations of “old school” American bluegrass music.
In the words of our own conductor Eric Silberger, accomplished soloist, composer and laureate of the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition:
‘I’m excited for this next chapter with tonebase. I will be able to record invaluable practical knowledge from the greatest minds in the violin – insights that would otherwise be lost. I will participate in the creation of incredible and never seen before content. And I will also be able to introduce you to elite artists of our time in a personal way, where you really get to know them. Even more than you would in a master class! That’s why tonebase is an exciting next step for me.
All tonebase members are invited to weekly LIVE workshops and masterclasses with renowned violinists. You’ll hear top active players, in real time, talk about their personal approaches to training and performance.
Members also have access to community forums where you can interact with other passionate violinists, participate in monthly challenges and concerts, and get feedback on your playing.
With Tonebase Violin, you can now improve your skills and progress in your musical goals, all while being guided by the greatest minds in the violin. It’s time to bring the veranda experience home!
